Bird&Us Photography will capture the Ribbon Cutting Carnival’s amazing moments, so “Get your smiles ready!” organizers said, adding that “Our passion is to work with children of all abilities to help them reach their maximum potential, and bridge any gaps in deficits they may have.”
Evolve was founded after owners April Hurley and Lindsey Meyer saw a growing need in their community for a place that kids with special needs could reach their true potential. The founders were inspired by families who have struggled for years to find a school that accepted and fostered an individualized-learning approach to each child’s personal learning style.
“Evolve School of Learning sets forth high expectations for all our students and will offer a unique learning environment where every child will be able to grow, learn, and progress in a direction that best meets their needs,” organizers said.
