The EVCS Harvest Festival is an opportunity to teach our children

action and learn that sometimes in life we are in a position to share,
and when we are, it is important to do so.

What Can I bring?

Non perishable foods please

canned fruit, cereal, pasta, rice, lentils, soups, canned tomatoes, vegetables, sauces, beans, canned vegetables, peanut butter in plastic jars, almond butter, boxed and dried goods

Parents, we need a few volunteers to help.

Jazz at Lincoln Center

Our Core Value is Joy of Learning

Dear EVCS Family,

One of the greatest and most unique things about our school is our commitment to sparking wonderment and awe in our students through engagement in the arts, and there is no better way to do that than through our many partnerships with outside arts organizations. One partnership that I am very excited about is with Jazz at Lincoln Center. Our students will be treated to three concerts this year in our school auditorium by musicians from Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Jazz for Young People – Let Freedom Swing program, and the first concert is tomorrow morning at 9:00! The concert happens to coincide with our PA general meeting, so if you are staying for the meeting please try to pop in for a quick listen. Should be awesome. At the very least, ask your child to tell you all about it after school tomorrow.

Kind regards,

Bradley

School Wide Morning Meeting Message 11/13/2017

Dear EVCS Students,

Welcome back to another week!  I hope you all stayed warm and cozy this weekend.

Our core value is social action.

Social action involves identifying things that are wrong in our world and then taking steps to make them better.  One of the best ways we can make a difference in the world is by making an impact right here in our own community.  Every year our school collects cans and boxes of food for our annual Harvest Festival.  This food is donated to a local soup kitchen that helps to feed people in our neighborhood who don’t have enough to eat.  This is a form of social action! When we visit the soup kitchen next week, please say a big “Thank you!” to the kind women and men who work there.  They are also doing a kind of social action by preparing the donated food for our hungry neighbors.

 

Last week when students had a day off for Election Day, teachers came to school to learn new things together.  One of the things we spent time exploring last Tuesday was breathing exercises and other things we can all do to help promote mindfulness, calm and focus in our classrooms.  Before we all go up upstairs to get to work, let’s try one of these breathing exercises together!  This one is called “Candle Breathing”.

Thanks very much to our 1st graders for hosting today!  Thanks, as always to the amazing EVCS SWMM House Band!  And thanks to everyone who joined us today and sang loud and proud.  Have a great day.

Love,

Bradley

Fall Ball and PA meeting Recap

fall ball

Hello EVCS PA Member Families,

Once again, we parents stepped up and showed what a creative, fun, generous and devoted bunch we are. The Fall Ball was a huge success! There are way way too many people to thank, really, nearly every EVCS family and many of the staff, in some way, had a hand in this. From the planning, building, baking, cooking and decorating, to the crafts, games, trick-or-treating, dance party and the incredible haunted house, to serving food, manning tables, selling tickets, and cleaning up the whole thing, we certainly came through! Everybody who contributed deserves a giant thank you! We, especially, need to call out Hagit and Noel, our Events Co-Chairs, for taking the reigns on the entire beast. The kids had a blast, thank you, All!

We also thank MFTA, Material For The Arts Located in LIC.
MFTA is a recognized leader in waste reduction. Supporting non profits throughout the city. We are tremendously grateful for their work and support. Our event decor and detail could not happen without them!

A great group of pumpkins were entered in the Carving Contest. The 1st prize went to Nina in 4th Grade with her rat infested jack-o-lantern. 2nd place went to Alex Yakov in 5th Grade with his zombie pumpkin. Adele in 2nd grade and her sister Anna in K made a lit up jack-o-lantern and Yan from 3rd grade’s pumpkin had a giant spider crawling on top. Thank you so much to the contestants and to all the children and families that voted!
