Bergen Meadow students explore Evergreen’s history

Bergen Meadow second-graders are now quite knowledgeable about their hometown.

The students recently completed a unit on the history of Evergreen, which culminated in a program that showed parents what the kids learned. In addition to portraying figures from Evergreen’s past, the students took parents on a museum walk, where Evergreen artifacts they made were displayed in the cafeteria and classrooms.

They spotlighted buildings, events and people that even longtime residents might not know about.
