Screen Shot 2018-02-06 at 2.26.24 PM

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We had another great week at EVCS. Thank you, PreK and K teachers and families for participating in the Early Childhood Literacy Workshop! The turn out was terrific. Next week is short, with no school on Friday.

The flu is definitely going around – so we ask everyone to go over some simple steps with your kids Simple Steps to Keep Children Healthy… and remind them that healthy habits and washing hands are important preventative steps.

Let’s take a look at next week and see what is coming up after the break:
