EVCS Weekly March 19 – 23

weekly visual 3.19

Dear Parents and Guardians,

It’s been an energized week at EVCS! We hope everyone had a productive parent-teacher meeting and that our students have set new personal goals – there is time to reach them – if we make every day count! Remember to keep up the reading with EVCS Reading Olympics – running now through Monday, April 9. We set up a table in the lobby with free books!! Help yourself and feel free to swap if you have a good read to share! We will continue to add books daily through next week. Stop by any day.

Let’s take a look ahead to see what’s coming up …
