Hello EVCS Families,

As you may be aware from the last PA meeting, there are imminent changes ahead for our After-School program. Beginning next semester (February) we will be partnering with an outside organization to administer the program, and it will no longer be a Parent’s Association run enterprise.

Our After School Advisory Committee has been working hard to find great replacement organizations that will, as closely as possible, match our current program in curriculum and mission. The committee is holding a meeting this Tuesday evening (11/15- 5:30pm) to discuss the two best and final contending programs. All are invited to come learn what each of these organizations can offer our kids and be a part of this discussion.

The ASAC, the PA and EVCS administration is making every effort to ensure this shift to new management is as seamless and low impact as possible. Many of the same people and faces will continue to provide the instruction and care of our kids after school. The variety and content of the classes will be kept similar or improved upon and, as a parent body, we will continue to have input into the classes offered. The pricing structure, however, will be changing. In both scenarios we are considering the full price fees will be reduced and scholarships will still be available, though the scholarships may be more limited than they currently are.

The goal is to provide a great, inclusive, valuable, on-sight after-school program that also is viable and sustainable; one that is fun, safe and worthy of our kid’s creativity and time.

Please join the ASAC Tuesday evening(11/15) 5:30pm. (Please RSVP For Childcare here or in Room 203 by Monday 11/14 12 noon)

And/Or learn more at the General PA meeting on Wednesday morning (11/16) 8:45am.

Best Regards,

Catharine
PA President
