Welcome to Evans Elementary School
We want to take this opportunity to welcome children and families to Evans Elementary School. Evans is a “family-friendly” learning place that is situated centrally in Sardis and is only minutes from Highway 1.
We believe that cooperation and respect are important when working, learning and playing together. We hope that our quality school programs will help your child to develop: solid skills and a positive attitude leading to academic success; confidence and self-esteem; creative thinking and problem-solving skills and self-reliance and confidence.
Evans Elementary is a great school with much to offer our students and their families including:
- a school-wide focus on improving students’ literacy and numeracy skills
- school successes related to social responsibility
- an on-site, licensed before and afterschool care
- a wide range of special events, spirit days and other activities
- a dedicated Parent Advisory Council

This includes registration for K - 12, French Immersion and out of catchment requests. You will be required to:
