EVCS Weekly, May 29

Dear Parents and Guardians

A shout out to all of you for supporting the textile drive last week!
We collected 400 pounds of clothes and shoes! Wow!
A special thanks to Choresh Wald for coordinating this effort.

We did a follow-up lice check this week as well as a parent training. We will hold another lice workshop in the fall. The good news: the lice situation seems to be under control. Let’s keep up the preventative measures and continue to comb!

Hang on to your hats, there is plenty of fun to be had next month!
