Awesome to see so many of you at the Battle of the Bands last night! And now that you are super fans of the EVCS Family Band, be sure to RSVP for the gala where you can catch them again. (Remember, free if you RSVP in advance or $10 at the door).
And keep those auction items coming – we are really excited about what has come in so far but also starting to stress out about not having enough items so please pick your brain, then pick the brains of your best friend, your neighbor, your crazy connected cousin and more. All the details you need to ask for auction items are here.
Dear Parents and Guardians,
We are back at it and March is here! Get ready for an action packed transition into spring!
The Reading Olympics has begun! And there will be a book sale in the yard each Monday this month. Please feel free to purchase, contribute, swap or donate books. Proceeds will be part of the Reading Olympics fundraiser that helps contribute to the Parent Association efforts! This is a win-win for all!
Remember this Sunday is the District 1 Battle of the Family Bands event! We hope some of you can come out to support EVCS Family Band in their battle to bring home the trophy! Get tickets online or at the door!
Let’s see what is coming up next week…
The 2019 Reading Olympics are on!
During March, students at EVCS will read 10 books or read for 10 hours to help raise money for school enrichment programs.
You can encourage your favorite student and help us fund theater, music, computer, and other special programs for the whole school by pledging just $1/book or $1/hour. (You are also more than welcome to pledge more … )
New: Steve & Kate’s Camp.
Here’s a sneak preview of summer-camp offers that will be auctioned during the Spring Gala, April 6.
As we all continue our efforts to reach out to more camps, there will be more to consider. Please stay tuned.
The Deal: Five Day Passes for Steve & Kate’s Camp
Need flexible summer camp plans for your child? Does your child love choice time? Steve & Kate’s Camp has it all. At Steve & Kate’s, kids have the freedom to make their own choices, driven by curiosity and a range of activities from stop- motion animation, fashion, coding, breadmaking, sports, music, dance, and more. Redeem these guest passes online and your child can show up for any five days. Parents can add additional paid day passes but note these complimentary days will not apply toward the cost of any of any paid plans. Lunch and snacks provided!
The Deal: 50% off Camp Kimama NY Overnight Juniors (2 winners)
Happy Mid-Winter Recess All!
Please remember to keep asking around about auction items – the donations are coming in but not as fast as we would like! DETAILS TO HELP YOU ASK HERE.
And, for those of you sitting on a beach somewhere sipping a pina colada right now (arrrg) and for all of you still in the cold, please think about if you know anyone in the food and beverage industry that would be interested in making an alcohol or food donation to the Gala. Get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any leads.
Online tickets sale is now closed. You can buy tickets at the door.
Don’t sleep on the event of the year!
The 2nd Annual District 1 Battle of the Family Bands at the Bowery Ballroom is very rapidly approaching and EVCS is ready to show up strong and take home the coveted trophy. We’ll be competing against our friends from The Earth School, PS 110, Tompkins Square Middle School and UNMS. One thing is for certain – it’s going to be really fun.
Dear Parents and Guardians,
We had a good week at EVCS. It was great to see some of you at the Parent Math Workshop – we hope you felt a connection to what your child is experiencing in math and were able to sharpen your skills or learn something new as part of the take away! Click here for a peek at the slide show.
Next week, remember we take time to recharge ourselves.
School resumes on Monday, February 25.
