Everything Grows

Everything Grows! was the theme of our 2013 Spring Festival. Just as one event can’t fully capture the spirit of the school year, one picture can’t capture the spirit of the event.  But here is our best try:

You Make the World a Beautiful Place

At a school like ours, we rely on the parent involvement and volunteerism to make us great. Study after study demonstrates that active, involved and engaged parents make the greatest difference for children. The Evergreen School Parents Association (ESPA)  held its final school-wide meeting of the year.  Reflecting on ESPA’s accomplishments, it is clear that Evergreen would not be the place it is without ESPA’s leadership and all the significant volunteers efforts of our parents.  We all owe...

Evergreen Art... Makes Us

Look around Evergreen. Art is everywhere.  In our classrooms. In our halls and stairwells, too.  And when you look around your life, you’ll see art all around, too.  From artwork in our homes to masterpieces in Washington Museums, we are immersed in art every day. When a child creates a work of art, he establishes a connection as old as civilization itself. She refines her skills and develops mastery over materials.  He develops control over clay, paint, scissors and glue.

Celebrating Our Music Program

There isn’t a civilization in the world that doesn’t have its own musical tradition.  Why? According to Howard Sacks, physician, neurology professor at NYU and author of Musicophilia: Music can move us to the heights or depths of emotion. It can persuade us to buy something, or remind us of our first date. It can lift us out of depression when nothing else can. It can get us dancing to its beat. But the power of music goes much, much further. Indeed, music occupies more areas of our brain than...

The ABC's of Outdoor Play

Why is play so important?  According to Marc Armitage, a British Playworker (more on that in a moment), play is natural, essential, spontaneous, environmentally-based and intrinsically motivating.  To a Montessorian’s ears, those are the characteristics of learning, too.  At Evergreen, we describe what happens in our classrooms the same way.  Work, play, learning and being are synonymous because each is a natural and essential aspect of life itself.

Esteemed Elders' Day
