EVANSVILLE, Wyo. — Evansville Elementary students celebrated the Town of Evansville on May 15, commemorating 100 years since the town’s founding in 1923. Students and staff spent time learning from local community members who joined them to share stories, facts and other exciting historical knowledge about the town of Evansville.
As the Town of Evansville prepares for the upcoming celebration later this summer, students had the opportunity to partner with town officials to place items in a time capsule. Students left their mark on history by putting their painted fingerprints on a mural to be included inside the time capsule, as well as adding in seeds from the Garden Club and other items from throughout the school.
Students shared their excitement about being a soaring Evansville Eagle:
Zoey: “I love going to school at Evansville because I get to see my teachers.”
Bryce: “Evansville is a great school because they let students learn how they want to and let the teachers teach how they want to.”
Brittney: “I love going to school at Evansville because I love this school and it is a safe place for me.”
Emma: “Evansville is a good school because they have good teachers and I like the school houses.”
Daisy: “I love coming to school every day because everyone always has a smile on their face and everyone is so nice to everybody else.”
Cooper: “Evansville is a great school because it has great teachers.”
“Our current school was built in 1968, and the original school originated in 1939 in the old town hall building,” principal Stacy Moore said. “We are honored to be a part of the Town of Evansville, and we look forward to continuing to grow together with our community.”
