Dear EVCS families,
The new school year is right around the corner and it’s time to start making plans for after school. All of the information you need to know about program offerings, schedules, registration procedures, and program fees can be found here.
The first day of after school will be Monday September 11. Families can register in one of three ways – over the phone, in person at school beginning September 5, or online. Details at the link above.
We are looking forward to another great year partnering with MMCC to run our after school program. If you have any questions please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you soon,
The EVCS After School team
Well, another school year is in the books! It’s been a great year at EVCS, and though I will miss seeing your kids’ beautiful smiling faces every day, I am grateful that we all get the summer to recharge our batteries, reflect on our successes and challenges this year, and enjoy time with friends and family. You should expect a serious lull in EVCS emails over the next several weeks, but before you unplug entirely, I want to make sure you have some important info for next year. We’ll send it again in August, but for the planners among you:
School begins Thursday, September 7th.
Our start time will continue to be 8:30 am and we will use the schoolyard as our arrival space. There is a very good chance that the schoolyard will be under construction in September (fingers crossed) in which case we will have an alternate arrival plan at the very start of the year, TBD. Stay tuned for more information on that in late August.
The first day of school will be a half day for Pre-K and K students, with dismissal at 11:30. The second day of school is a half day for Pre-K only, full day for K.
Families will be notified of their children’s class placements by email from their new teachers in early August. This will allow us to continue to form classes over the summer based on enrollment. We ask that you notify us as soon as possible if you will not return to EVCS in the fall.
End of year reports went home today, Wednesday, June 28th. If your child was not in school today, the report will be mailed home next week.
I’ll be around this summer if you need anything or want to stop by and hang out in my air conditioned office. The Tree of Knowing Garden will be booming, so come by to grab some greens for dinner.
Finally I just want to tell you what a privilege and an honor it is to work with you as partners in our children’s education. Thank you for all you do to make our school such a magical place. I’m looking forward to another magical year, starting on September 7. All the best for a happy, safe, and adventurous summer!

Our Core Value is Social Action
Dear EVCS family,
Holy moly, we’re on the other side of the middle of June and we’re starting to tick off “the last (fill in the blank) of the school year” moments, including this coming Monday morning when we will have our final School-Wide Morning Meeting. I won’t get too nostalgic here – I’ll save that for next week – but I do want to fill you in on the culminating event for one of the coolest projects our kids have been in engaged in this year.
I mentioned back in April that our 4th and 5th graders have been studying the humanitarian crisis unfolding in Syria. They have done much reading, writing and discussion about the situation, and because they are EVCS kids who have internalized our Core Values, they felt determined to do something to affect change in this part of the world. To that end – the 4th and 5th grade classes will be launching a fundraiser on Monday morning in the schoolyard, where they will sell hand made silk screened T-shirts ($20) and posters ($5). They look beautiful and all of the money raised will go directly to support The White Helmets in Syria. Big ups to EVCS parents Naomi Mizusaki who designed the image, and Anselm Dastner who made the screens. And a huge thanks to all of the kids, parents and teachers who helped silk screen the merch this week. Items will be on sale at arrival and dismissal all week, while supplies last!
Hope to see you on Monday for our last sing along and share of the year! (sniff, sniff)
