With the Summer Recess clock rapidly running out, we hope you can squeeze in a little more rest and fun in before the first day of school. To help with this, we can all be thankful that EVCS has taken care of all the school-supplies shopping this year. Not only saving us families time but also money!

Speaking of the stuff… This is a great time to take care of making your annual family donation to the PA General Fund*. Go online to donateor save us the PayPal fee and bring in a check- payable to The Parent Association of EVCS.

The financial support we, the PA, contribute is incredibly crucial to so much of the great educational experience our kids get at EVCS. Our ask is for each family to directly give $650, but please consider contributing however much you can. If a lump donation is not possible, you can break it up into 10 automatic monthly installments. No matter how large or small the amount, each and every donation makes a difference! Some of what our PA will help fund this year is our kids’ in-class projects, field trips, music, art, the enrichment programs (including the recess enrichment) and much more.

Plus, new this year, each individual classroom account (SAC) will be funded by the PA General Fund too, including the Music and Art rooms. That means, we families no longer need to donate to multiple accounts. Please remember to include your individual classroom contribution amount (and perhaps some of that school supplies cash savings) with your General Fund donation. ALL donations are greatly appreciated and needed!

We are also looking for volunteers to be Classroom Parents, each class needs a few. This is a super easy way to support your teachers and students directly and to get to know some of your fellow EVCS parents. It carries a minimal time commitment and much can be done remotely. The more parents that sign up, the easier the job gets! If you are interested and/or want more details please email Class Parent Chair, Jenny: Jkronenfeld@esperanzany.org

We are so excited to see everyone next Thursday!!
Warmest end-of-summer wishes,
The EVCS PA Exec and Fundraising Committee
