We are looking forward to our first Parents Association meeting of the year, this Wednesday at 8:15 am in the Tree of Knowing Garden. (For those of you who don’t know, this is an outdoor space up the steps behind the playground.) Come learn about upcoming events, join a committee, meet new families, and enjoy free coffee and treats!
Also, we will be electing a new member of our School Leadership Team(SLT). The SLT is a group of 5 teachers and 5 parents, who along with Bradley help make important decisions about our school curriculum. The SLT meets once a month on Thursdays from 3:30-5:30. There are no special skills required, we are all qualified for the job. (more information below) Please consider nominating yourself for this exciting position!
1) School-Wide Morning Meeting in the Auditorium (TODAY!)
2) Curriculum Night
2) First Kick off Parent Association Meeting
Come to the Community Education Council (CEC) District 1 School Diversity Town Hall meeting next Wednesday, Sept. 17, at 6 pm to show our support for diversity and equity in our schools. This is a great chance to meet Chancellor Farina, who will be there in person, and learn about diversity-related issues in District 1.

Hello EVCS families!
One of my favorite traditions at EVCS is our school-wide sing-along. I think there is no better way to start your week than to gather in the auditorium and sing together! We’ve never actually sang the song Kumbaya, but the spirit is very kumbaya. We have historically called our sing-alongs “Town Meetings”. However, this year we are re-branding Town Meeting to be called School-Wide Morning Meeting in an effort to tie in our Responsive Classroom approach. There will be more on the Responsive Classroom next week at Curriculum Night, but in the meantime please try to join us for our first School-Wide Morning Meeting of the year on Monday morning at 8:50. Come ready to sing loud and proud!
