We have had a fun week and with the shift in temperatures it is time to really gear up with your winter clothing. Be sure to dress your kids so that they are able to participate in the outdoor recess and feel cozy.
Hats and gloves or mittens are highly recommended.
A few reminders for next week:
Re: Harvest Festival
So far we have collected around 1,000 items!! There is still time to reach a goal of 1200 if everyone brings in 1-2 more items on Monday.
We can do it! Join the Harvest Festival Tuesday, November 25
Students will line up in the yard and organize all the cans, sing songs and then we all walk the cans over to Trinity on Ave B and 9th Street.
It is a great tradition and everyone is welcome to join in the walk!
Thursday, December 11 8:30am – 9:30am.
Please Join us in the Main Library Conference Room 4th Fl.

The Harvest Festival is only weeks away. Please keep bringing unopened cans to the school yard before Tuesday, November 25th.
A suggestion is to put 1-2 cans in your child’s backpack every few days vs a huge bag. For new parents of EVCS, this is a yearly event where all students and the EVCS community help provide food around the Thanksgiving Holiday to those in need.
On Tuesday morning November 25th, EVCS students and families will gather in the school playground and walk over to Trinity Lutheran together to deliver our collected cans. Trinity is located at 9th Street and Avenue B…we could use a few granny carts to carry the cans over!
