Reminder – please take the survey on controlled choice

Dear EVCS families,

This is a quick reminder to please take this short survey about the CEC’s resolution on controlled choice. Our school’s PA and SLT are being asked to weigh in with our point of view on this particular resolution and on the concept and principles of controlled choice in general, so it’s important that we understand where our school community stands.

The survey was developed collaboratively by members of the Diversity Committee and the School Leadership Team and will be used by our Parent Association and SLT to inform our next steps. The survey is 100% anonymous and will remain open until Monday evening, February 8. Thanks again for your participation.

Yours,

Bradley

Record Breaking EVCS Winter Jubilee!

IMG 9549FINAL TALLIES ARE IN!

One week ago today… we nailed it.

We are over-joyed to report that we netted $4000. Over the past several years, we would net around $1000. This year we more than tripled our proceeds. $2500 of the net came from our very first online summer camp auction, the balance came from drink sales, raffles and miscellaneous online donations. All of this without charging an entry fee! Way to go EVCS. Congratulations to everyone and what a show!

On behalf of the EVCS events committee, we want to thank everyone who came out on a Sunday evening to socialize, and those who were thinking of us and helping raise a few dollars for our school.
