Evergreen Chapel and Fifth Grade Graduation

Evergreen staff and students will be having our special end-of-year chapel—graduation on the last day of school. Although this is usually an open chapel, at this time we are only allowing 5th-grade students to invite 2 guests to be at this special chapel—graduation ceremony. We will continue to practice all covid safety protocols (health screenings, masks, social distancing) while gathering outside for worship. Team 3 parents please see your classroom blog for more information on this annual chapel and graduate celebration.

Final Day Student Pick Up and Car Parade

We are excited to once again celebrate the end of the school year with a car parade on the last day of school for K-5 students. Thursday, May 27 students will be dismissed at 12:00pm and a car parade will commence at 12:10 pm. Please click here for more details on how the car parade will work.

We have a handful of items in our Lost and Found. Please click this link to view photos of lost and found items. If you see something that belongs to your child, email Carrie at cdoezema@grcs.org and the item will be sent home with your child. Any unclaimed items will be donated at the end of the school year.
