A new school will be constructed adjacent to the existing school. After construction is complete, the old school will be demolished and the existing gym will remain for district and community use.
On Wednesday, June 16, 2021 Superintendent Art Jarvis and school board members honored Hugh McMillan, longtime school supporter and tireless advocate of children, at a small ceremony to dedicate Evergreen Elementary School’s current gymnasium as the future home of the Hugh McMillan Community Center.
The dedication plaque message reads:
"Through your words and photographs, you shined a light on the students and staff in the Peninsula School District. You believed our stories were worthy of being told and we will carry that with us forever.
Thank you for your inspiration. Your legacy will live on in the many lives you have touched."
Every time I drive to Evergreen and see the worksite, it still surprises me, and I reflect on how exciting this is for our school community and the energy this new building will bring to our staff,
students and parents.
Principal Hugh Maxwell
