Welcome to the website of the Evesham Township Public School District. Our district includes Preschool through eighth grade. We are one of the largest elementary school districts in southern New Jersey, located approximately twenty miles east of Philadelphia. We have seven elementary schools and two middle schools with a total enrollment of approximately 4,400 students. We invite you to browse through this website where you will find a great deal of wonderful information about our schools and district.
Our schools offer state of the art instructional programs and facilities. We provide a wide range of outstanding curricular and co-curricular opportunities designed to meet the needs of all students. We work closely with the community to enhance the educational experiences provided for the students. Each school has an active PTA or PTO, enthusiastic teaching staff and very dedicated support staff. We are very proud of our students and the wonderful staff who guide the children toward excellence in education.
A Message from the Superintendent
Our students have completed many wonderful events and projects. In December, each of our schools held instrumental and/or vocal concerts. All of the students and staff involved in these performances did an outstanding job! The concerts were a pleasure to watch and enjoyed by all in attendance.
In January, four of our elementary schools held LEAD graduations for fifth-grade students who completed this drug and alcohol awareness program. This course is a collaborative effort between the Evesham Township Police Department and the school district to provide an educational program for all fifth grade classrooms designed to prevent or reduce drug abuse and violence among children and youth. Officer Kinner, LEAD Officer, showcased the students’ hard work throughout the program at the graduation ceremonies. Congratulations to all of the fifth-graders on their accomplishments!
The beginning of February marked the half-way point of the school year. Teachers have been busy with various mid-year assessments that are used to document growth and inform instruction for our students. The actual 100th day also was celebrated and recognized in various primary grades across the district. I encourage you to visit our school websites for more information on the various school events.
I’ve also had the opportunity to continue visiting many of our classrooms across the district and enjoy spending time with our students and staff. One recent visit was to Mrs. Logan’s pre-school class at Rice. As part of a unit of study on robots, I got to read to the students a book on this topic and help with an activity where they built a class robot. It was an enjoyable morning and students did an excellent job!
