This year, the H&SA will be trialing the use of the Remind App. Evans families can opt in to receive text messages and/or push notifications to their smartphones. We plan to send out a Weekly H&SA Update to those who opt in, with information regarding that week's H&SA events and reminders. It'll be short and sweet and hopefully give busy parents a quick reminder about something they may have forgotten. Click HERE for more info on how to join using classroom code @b7bh6h.
Thanksgiving Spirit Grams On Sale NOW!
Send in your completed gram along with $2 cash in an envelope marked "Spirit Sticks C/O Jen Steffenauer" no later than November 11! Students will receive your "thankful" note alone with a festive spirit stick before Thanksgiving break!
Box Tops for Education Contest
Our contest begins NOW and will end Feb 13 for clipped submissions and Feb 15 for app submissions. The class that collects the most Box Tops during the contest period will win a Water Ice Party, with other prizes going to runner up classes in each grade! Many Box Tops have an 11/1/19 expiration date, so please submit those Box Tops ASAP!

Join the Home & School Association!
"Why should I join the Evans Home & School Association?"
Fundraising is only one of the things we do here at the Evans! You'll get the inside scoop on all H&SA events planned throughout the year and and be provided with opportunities to help with those events. As an H&SA member, you have a voice in decisions regarding how our funds are spent and who leads the H&SA team. You'll join a group of passionate teachers & parents who believe that, through volunteerism and school involvement, our students will grow up knowing the importance of community, and hopefully become adults who appreciate and support the same. Join the Home & School Association today!
Membership information is sent home each fall in the H&SA First Day Packet. You can also access the 2019-2020 forms by clicking here.
Find us on Facebook!
If you plan on coming to the school this year during school hours, whether it's to volunteer for the H&SA, help teachers during a holiday party, or any other reason, you MUST have clearances on file with the SFASD district office!
Clearances (including the Annual Online Volunteer Registration) take AT LEAST 2 weeks to process. So if you have any interest in helping during September (think Fun Run and Book Fair!!!) please complete these ASAP!
Here's the link to fill out the Annual Online Volunteer Registration, as well as what other documentation you may need to submit - https://www.spring-ford.net/…/spring-…/volunteer-information
The objective of this organization is to provide communication and understanding between families, faculty and administration at Evans Elementary School. We intend to encourage parents and teachers to cooperate in the education of the child.
We also facilitate efforts to provide adequate social, physical, and educational materials and programs; to meet and enhance the students’ educational experience, and to raise and maintain community interest in the educative processes at Evans Elementary School.
Evans is again partnering with the American Red Cross to host a blood drive through the Pint-Size Hero Program on
Saturday, November 16 from 9am - 2pm.
This program will introduce students to the importance of blood donation and will provide lifesaving blood products for hospital patients. Our students will have the opportunity to show leadership and help save lives by recruiting blood donors for our upcoming blood drive. Each student who recruits an adult to donate will be recognized as a Pint-Size Hero with a fun gift from the Red Cross.
You can support this program by donating blood, recruiting other donors or volunteering at the blood drive. Please schedule your blood donation appointment at redcrossblood.org using sponsor code EVANS.
