Dearest EVCS Families,
The Event and Gala committees are working hard (yes, even during Spring Break) to make sure we will have the best Gala yet.

Please call the ones you are interested in as soon as possible, as they may fill up quickly. Many have scholarships available.
As I hear of other programs I will pass along the info to you, and if you know of camps that you would like to recommend, please share them with us and we will add them to our listings.
Good luck with planning a terrific summer.
SAVE THE DATE
Please SAVE THE DATE for the Second Annual Ladies’ Night at Meg, the East Village clothing boutique. Just like last year, everything in the store will be discounted AND 30% of the evening’s totals will be donated back to EVCS (last year, this came to almost $1,500 for our school). The wonderful women of Meg will have drinks and snacks to sustain your shopping, and as always at Meg, tailoring is included.
New threads for the upcoming gala!
Wednesday, May 11th, 5-8pm
Please Note: If you can’t make it to the shopping night, Meg will still offer you the discount & kickback to EVCS if you mention the event when you’re there.

Dear EVCS Families
We hope you are well into enjoying this fine spring break, getting rest and enjoying plenty of outdoor play time!
Get ready for May.
We have an exciting month coming up!
Please keep a close eye on the calendar as items are added and or shifted as this is a very busy time of year for all of us!
Enjoy each day as it arrives!
Dear EVCS Families,
SPACE IS STILL AVAILABLE…
Did you know that our school has a ceramics kiln? It’s located in Maggie’s art room on the 4th floor and we are inviting all the adults in our community to take advantage of this amazing resource at an after-school hand-building pottery class.
The class will be taught by a seasoned ceramics professional over the course of 6 weeks. It’s a great way to get together with other parents and get creative. Perfect for beginners or those with more experience. A lot can be made with hand building – mugs, plates, bowls, small sculptures, etc.
This will be a small class with 8 spaces. The fee is $100 for all 6 classes which includes materials. All projects must be completed during class time. If we have a lot of interest we will put together a list for future classes. And, for this class kids are not allowed. We are talking about doing future parent/child classes so let us know if you would be interested in that.
Ceramics at EVCS
Meets on 6 consecutive Thursdays: 5/12; 5/19; 5/26; 6/2; 6/9; 6/16
Time: 3:30 – 5:30
Location: Maggie’s art room on the 4th floor
Cost: $100 (cash, due at first class)
Please let us know if you are interested… first come, first served.
All the best,
Tomorrow, Friday April 22, is National Earth Day!
Let’s celebrate together and be mindful of what it means to HEAL the Earth. We can be a part of the solution to make the world stronger, safer and a healthier place for all of us.
Express your support and show your spirit!
Have a Great Week!
Your Green & Wellness Committee
We have a terrific start on the garden, seeds have been planted and the little babies are starting to come up! Please be sure to stop up to take a peek – you can access the garden throught he yard up the stairs where the nikes and scooters are stored.
We need more soil…
we may have access to free soil not far from the school, as a gift from a neighboring gardener, if we can find a way to get it here!
If anyone is feeling strong and has extra time, we need to haul some over from 13th Street (Campos Plaza) this Friday afternoon…
We would meet up in the yard sometime between 1- 2:30ish,
we would walk over to 13th St, load up, pull it back and carry it up to the ToKG…
If anyone has access to a wheel barrow, bring it along!
Granny Carts would also work, we can fill up empty plastic soil bags.
We do have a couple wagons and the garden has a shovel or two. Our our next door neighbor may have a shovel we can borrow as well!
What a better way to spend 1/2 hour on earth day than moving earth.
Good ol’ physical labor on a hot spring day before spring break!
and who would be supplying the lemonade?!
Please send us a phone number if you care to help and are willing to jump in on the fun! We will share more details on time and place to meet.
Spread the word. No pressure, it’s an odd time of day.
Happy Earth Week.
