Dear Parents and Guardians,
The Parent Association is busy in the background preparing for the biggest family event of the year, it’s the EVCS Fall Ball. It will be held at the school on Saturday, October 27. Check out the links below to get involved!
Looking forward to a full five day week ahead, let’s see what’s coming up…

Wednesday, October 17 – Friday, October 19
EVCS Annual Costume Swap
In the yard each morning 8:00 – 8:30 a.m.
Bring gently used costumes and accessories!
We will have tables set up to display them – come find a
(new to you) costume or get an old one out of the closet
and prepare for the first costume contest complete with prizes!
Right now the EVCS Parent Association is in the middle of our biggest fundraiser of the year. It’s not an event. You won’t need a babysitter and you don’t have to put on a costume (that is coming soon). But you do need to take action. Right now.
Between now and the end of the year, the Parent Association needs to raise more than half our budget to help make EVCS the special place that it is via direct family contributions. This year we are asking each family to give $500.
We understand that for some families this really is a lot – please only donate what you can. We also know that some families can give more, and we welcome that. If you are one of those families, please consider sponsoring an additional family, or giving whatever you can to help us meet our goals. We are truly a diverse community and if we work together we can raise all that we need to support the amazing extra programs that our kids enjoy each year. Donations can be split up into manageable monthly payments throughout the school year and all donations are tax deductible.
And one last thing – we are aiming for 100% family participation. Last year fewer than one third of our families made a contribution at any level. We know we can do better and we mean it when we say no amount is too small. Many people donating $10 or $25 adds up quickly. And, please know that all donations are anonymous and are only seen by the EVCS PA Treasurers.
Heather Hubbs and Nina Watkins, EVCS Fundraising Co-Chairs
PS – Have more to offer? Join us at the next FUNraising meeting on October 5 – we meet the first Friday of every month in the back room of The Roost right after morning drop off. Each meeting is a combo of brainstorming, organizing, networking and joining forces to figure out how we can help our school and family community be the best it can be.
