EVCS needs you – (FUN)draising!


Dear Families,

The EVCS Parent Association raises money to enrich the experiences our kids have at school every day. We raise money for field trips so that no student is ever asked to pay a fee and for arts programs like dance with Alvin Ailey, music with Third Street Music School and all school assemblies with Jazz at Lincoln Center. And there is so much more – take a look at the list of what our Parent Association has approved to cover this school year.

In order to pay for these incredible programs, we need to raise $45,000 by December 31st from direct family contributions. If you can, we are asking each family to contribute $500. Please know that all donations are anonymous and tax-deductible and every donation, at every amount, will get us closer to our goal.


Thank you, we look forward to a fun-filled school year together!
— The EVCS Fundraising Committee

P.S. The Fundraising Committee is looking for help – there are lots of ways to get involved and you don’t need to offer a ton of time to be a ton of help. Please reply to this email if you are interested in joining in the FUN(draising)!

On Wednesday we had our first General PA meeting of the year. Thank you to all who were able to come! For those who couldn’t make it please keep reading for a brief re-cap. You can view the full meeting minutes HERE.

SLT Election
We had 7 fantastic parents volunteer to be our PA reps on the School Leadership Team, each of whom would be a great addition to the SLT! There were 3 vacant seats and Shabnam Faruki, Crystal Perry and Dave Dorrier will be joining PA co-President Heather Hubbs, Abby Rubin, and Craig Harwood on the SLT this year for a 2 year term. Thank you to all who offered their time and ran!

SLT is a DOE mandated committee made up of teachers, admin and parents that meets once a month to discuss school policies. SLT meeting minutes and membership list are posted outside the school office, room 205.
