Evergreen PTSA focus is to provide support to the school through 2 key services: the first - recruiting and organizing volunteers needed by the school for various events like dances, schedule handouts, fun run, battle of the books etc. These events are organized by the ASB and they rely on parent volunteers to make them happen. Our second way of supporting the school is by organizing the effort of fundraising from our membership and turning the funds into grants to the school and staff for needed items, from staff training, to curriculum support, to appliances such as projectors and more, as well as scholarships for students in need. 

In addition, we support the Theater program at Evergreen by providing pass-through funding, organize Emergency preparedness, support our staff by providing Staff Appreciation events and help with events such as 8th grade celebration.

As our school goes through transition this coming year, with the student population dropping by almost half, and a new choice middle school established on premise in 2020-2021 school year, there are many more opportunities for PTSA to step up and contribute. There has been talk about moving the clubs under the wings of PTSA similar to how Theater operates. We plan to recruit a FACE chair that will collaborate with the district’s effort of Family and Community Engagement to help orient incoming and international families to our school.

How much we do and accomplish comes down to the number and passion of volunteers on our board and community. There is always plenty of opportunity.

If you are interested to serve on any of these positions, please contact nomcom@evergreenptsa.org. We will provide full training from our current board members and documentation to support your role, so please don't hesitate to join.
