Dear Parents and Guardians,

I’m so excited for the many parent workshops coming up, a book discussion with Bradley, a family fun math night, and more movie nights at EVCS! Welcome to 2018!

Our cookbook committee is rallying all of you to share a favorite recipe with us for the EVCS cookbook! The goal is to have the book ready for the Multicultural Potluck Share – but we need your recipes!

Also, there is a stomach-bug going around school. If your child has any symptoms, please keep them home until you are certain they are no longer contagious. A Guide for Parents about the Flu.

Let’s check out what we have to look forward to!
