AfterSchool@EVCS Regular Weds Pick Up: 5PM

Hi Folks,

Hope all is well.

I am touching base exclusively about tomorrow. As you know, Curriculum Night is upon us. Those children regularly registered for AfterCare on Wednesday will have coverage until 5:55pm and parents should feel free to contact and confirm with us regarding any child meant to be  transferred from AfterSchool’s AfterCare session to Curriculum Night/PA provided childcare. (Although I have asked for access to their list, I would rather we be over-prepared.) The rest of us, however, will need to remember to pick up our kids at 5pm in the lobby per usual.

Neither AfterSchool nor the PA/Curriculum Night organizers will be providing bridge babysitting between the close of AfterSchool at 5pm and the official start of Curriculum Night/childcare at 5:30pm.

And anyone registered for Curriculum Night childcare will need to drop their child/ren at 5:30pm as instructed. (FYI the Curriculum Night childcare button is on the evcs website at; http://evcsnyc.org/)

See you tomorrow night,

Camille

School Wide Morning Meeting Message 9/26/16

Dear EVCS students,

Welcome to the first School-wide Morning Meeting of the year!  For our new students and families – School-wide Morning Meeting is one of our favorite traditions at EVCS.  Every other Monday morning our whole school community gets together to sing songs, share things we’ve been working on in music class, and think about what is most essential in our learning.

This year, in addition to exploring the Habits of Mind together, we will be thinking about our Core Values as a school.  What are the things we care about the most at our school?  What is universal at EVCS, regardless of what grade you are in?  What do we stand for?

We will be working on developing a short list of our core values this year, but I want to start us off with the first one:

Our Core Value is kindness.

Wednesday’s PA Meeting Highlights- Part II

Hi Folks,

We here in the PA Exec. are worried that the parent body is not receiving enough emails from school, so we have decided to send all our emails in 2 parts!

No, No just kidding. But for some silly reason the bottom part of our last email of PA meeting highlights was lopped off, so I’m sending the missing bits here.

• All of our committees need members and several need a chairperson. Being a part of a parent committee is easy, fun and gratifying! Plus the more people who join up, the more fruitful we are.

Committee sign-up here

• The new series “Coffee Talk with Bradley” was announced. This is a series of topical conversations with Principal Bradley Goodman. The first one will beOctober 18th, after drop off. More to come on this.

• The puppies for cuddling during Wednesday’s PA meeting were a big hit! Just maybe we’ll try that again at the next meeting?? Mark your calendars, our next general meeting is Oct. 26th, 5:30pm.

Really, all the Best,

The PA Exec

EVCS Weekly, September 26

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I trust everyone is getting into a rhythm and sorting out your daily routines
and schedules. Our first School-Wide Morning Meeting is this Monday, September 26. The 5th graders will be hosting a morning bake sale in the yard. We hope you will come out a little early and support their efforts in raising money for the annual 5th grade camping trip.

For those new to EVCS, School-Wide Morning Meetings are on Mondays through-out the year. The entire school gathers in the Auditorium at 8:50 until 9:15 am. We sing together and Bradley shares the morning message. Parents and Guardians are all welcome to attend.

Safety at EVCS
As a gentle reminder, our security will be enforcing the DOE’s ID policy. You may or may not be aware that NYC School’s protocol for our security guards is to request that everyone present an ID upon entering the building. If you are asked, even though you have been coming to school for years, please understand that we are following these rules for everyones safety.
Thank you in advance for your support and understanding.

PA Meeting Highlights

Hello Parents of EVCS,

We had a great PA meeting yesterday! Thank you to all the parents who came. For those of you who couldn’t join us, here are a few highlights. Much more can be read in the full meeting minutes to be posted on the EVCS website:

• The Fall Ball is coming soon – Oct. 29th. This parent run carnival event needs ALL sorts of help and participation. First planning meeting is tomorrow, Friday, in the cafeteria 8:30am.

Curriculum Night is next Wednesday 9/28th 5:30 – 7:30pm. The PA is chipping in to help organize childcare at school by paras, non-teacher school and after-school staff. If you want to take advantage of childcare, you need to RSVP and register your children prior! We ask for a $5 per kid contribution. There will be pizza, activities and outdoor play (weather permitting). Pre-K and Kindergarteners will be separate from the rest of the older student body. Unfortunately,childcare is ONLY for current EVCS students. Register here.

• Don’t forget to donate to the PA Family Fund. Direct family donations are the bulk of our PA income each year. We ask for $500 per family, though any amount contributed is greatly appreciated and will help our kids! Monthly installment plan is available. The PA helps pay for so much of what makes this school the special place it is. The DOE school budget only can go so far (it falls very short) and there are cuts to this budget every year. Donations are tax deductible. Donate here.

• All our committees need members and several need a chairperson. Being a part of a parent committee is easy, fun and gratifying! Plus the more people who join up, the more fruitful we are. C’mon jump in!
