Military Families

Evergreen Elementary School is fortunate to get the support of an additional counselor through our military partnerships.  Our Military Family Life Counselor can provide information on how she can support you and your family. Click here for a brief description of some of the supports MFLC can offer our military connected families. If you would like your child to speak/work the MFLC, please contact her at 301-863-4060, MFLC or complete the permission slip and send it in with your child.

Free Tutoring for Military Families: 

All K-12 children in National Guard, Reserve and Active Duty Military families are eligible to receive individual academic support 24/7 regardless of the service member's branch or deployment status.  Help is available in 16 subjects including algebra, physics, history, grammar and essay writing--plus AP classes and test prep.  Whenever they have questions, students can get step by step homework help or they can ask a tutor to just proofread their work.  Tutor.com provides this service to military families at no cost through funding by the Department of Defense MWR Library Program, the Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program and the Navy General Library Program.  For more information or to connect with a tutor today, visit www.tutor.com/military
