EVCS Weekly Nov 12-16

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Next week is short but full, with no school on Monday and 11:30 dismissal on Thursday. But it’s conferences week! November Progress Reports will be given out at conferences. Please be sure to set up a meeting with your teachers if you have not done so already.

The EVCS Annual Harvest Festival is on. Please bring what you CAN! It is easier to carry a couple of cans at a time and the students get more out of it by physically bringing some of the items themselves and putting them in the collection bins near their classroom. We will continue to collect items through November 21. Thank you for your contributions and support!

Let’s take a closer look at next week and see what else is coming up…



Monday, November 12
Veterans Day Observed – No School

Tuesday, November 13 – Monday, November 19
Parent Teacher Conference Week
Please remember to sign up with your teachers for a conference.

Thursday, November 15
Half Day. Early Dismissal at 11:30 a.m.
Please be sure to make arrangements for your child to be picked up on time. And if your child attends an after-school program, please contact your program directly about the half day. Be sure to make arrangements for a timely pick up on Thursday, November 15 at 11:30 a.m.

School Of Rock Tickets

Hello Families!

Have you made your family donation yet to EVCS? If you haven’t, we are offering an extra incentive – make your donation by Sunday, Nov 11 before 8PM you will be entered into a raffle to win 2 tickets to School of Rock on Broadway! We figure you might have some questions, here goes:

Do I need to make the annual contribution of $500 to be entered?
No, contribute at any level and you are entered into the raffle!

I already gave, am I entered?
Yes! If you donated any amount to the family contribution this school year then you are entered.

When are the tickets for?
Once we pick the winner you can schedule a date that works for you – evening and matinee options are available.

What are the odds?
Well right now we have 49 individual donors… so that’s pretty good odds! Certainly a lot better than the recent lottery and you probably bought tickets for that too. And unlike the lottery, with this you can’t lose since all donations are tax deductible and go to benefit the kids of EVCS.

How do I make a donation?
CLICK HERE to make your donation right now!

Rock On,
Nina & Heather

Fall Ball – Thank You All


Hello Amazing EVCS Families,

We did it! We pulled off yet another blow-out of a Fall Ball! No small feat and wholly due to a great amount of time and effort donated by a great number of parents!

Thank you to Each and Every One of You who helped-out, kicked-in, baked, shlepped, scared, cleaned, manned a table and shopped. It could not have happened without you and the kids had an absolute blast! So many of us participated in so many many ways, three cheers to all of us!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We had a great week at EVCS! With the temperatures shifting and dropping, it’s time to round up your warm gear and layer up. EVCS policy is to be outside unless it is precipitating – so unless it is raining or snowing, expect to be outside! We believe that children benefit from outdoor play, so please count on outdoor recess and make sure your child has appropriate cold weather clothing labeled with your child’s first and last name!!

Let’s see what’s happening next week…

Monday, October 22
School Wide Morning Meeting 8:50 a.m. – 9:15 a.m.
