Fill Our She lve s
The sixth graders are proud to announce the second annual “Fill Our Shelves”
fundraiser! This year will be a Read-a-Thon. Students will be setting reading goals and then
collecting pledges (either flat pledges or 5 cents for each minute read). The Read-a-Thon
begins on April 11 (the beginning of National Library Week), and will last through April 22. The final day
to return donations will be Friday, April 29th. Proceeds will benefit our Carolyn Clark library.
A party will be awarded to the upper and primary class that raises most money. A special lunch will be
provided for the primary student and upper grade student who raises the most money.
There will be a fundraiser at Pasta Pomodoro on Thursday, April 21. The flier went home in today’s Friday
Folder and can also be found on the website to download. Please support our students as they continue
to show their love of reading while also supporting our school library!
The G reen H eroe s a re ha ppy to bring to Clark - " The Cra yon Initia tive "
What is the Crayon Initiative?
The Crayon Initiative organizes crayon collections that take unwanted crayons, remanufactures them, and
provides them to hospitals that are caring for kids.
The wax from crayons is not biodegradable and will never break down, leaving a waxy sludge in our
landfills for centuries to come. The Crayon Initiative supports environmental efforts by diverting crayons
from the landfills. Annually, over 500,000 pounds of broken crayons are discarded in landfills throughout
the country. By collecting unwanted crayons from restaurants, schools, as well as other locations, and
recycling them into new ones, they prevent crayons from depositing in the landfill.
How you can help
The Green Heroes club will be preparing and dropping of collection boxes in your classrooms. We would
appreciate it if you could encourage your students to place unusable crayons, crayon stubs or unneeded
crayons in the boxes. We will collect them, sort them and ship them to the Crayon Initiative.
There are no proceeds from this event, it is just to help the environment and help children in hospitals.
Here is a You Tube video introducing the program:

New/Renewal of Interdistrict Transfer Requests Accepted Through Friday, May 27, 2016
If your child is currently attending an Evergreen School District school on an
Interdistrict Transfer (i.e. you reside in another school district), you will need to begin
the renewal process at your resident district office. Interdistrict Transfers must be
reviewed annually; your child will not automatically be placed in a class for the 20162017 school year. Interdistrict Transfer Requests received before May 27th will have first
consideration for placement for the 2016-2017 school year.
School Choice Transfer Requests Accepted Monday, May 2, 2016 – Friday, May 20, 2016
If you are a resident of the Evergreen School District but wish for your child to attend an
Evergreen school other than your home school, you must complete a School Choice
Transfer Request form. “School Choice” placements are dependent on space availability
and are offered on a lottery system. Transportation is the responsibility of the parent and
will not be provided by the district. Forms will be available at your neighborhood
school and at the Evergreen School District Office at 3188 Quimby Road after Monday,
April 4, 2016. Completed requests will be accepted at the District Office during the
request window: Monday, May 2, 2016 through Friday, May 20, 2016.
Requests received after Friday, May 20, 2016 will not be included in the lottery.

Each spring, most students in California participate in the statewide testing program, which is the
California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System. The tests in the CAASPP
System provide information to teachers, parents/guardians, and students about students’ progress and
readiness for college and career. In grades three through eight, most students take the Smarter
Balanced online tests for English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics. However, students who
have a significant cognitive disability (as designated in their individualized education program) are
eligible to take the California Alternate Assessments (CAAs). In grades five and eight, students are also
tested in science. For more information, please visit
