Hello Good families of EVCS,

Our Spring Auction is looking mighty bare! The Gala is April 29th only 6 weeks away and we urgently need items for the silent auction! If you’ve been putting off securing a donation or contributing something yourself, now is time to Get On It!

The school and students are counting on the PA to fund so much of the wonderful and enriching things at EVCS. This auction is how we raise those funds. Without great auction items we can’t raise the dearly needed money for all our kids.

If every family could chip in and bring at least one item, we would have a successful and fantastic event!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We bet you had no idea our parents could unleash the inner rock star! Here’s hoping everyone enjoyed the passionate presentations especially when Georga got up there and sang her heart out with a pack of performers! Great job everyone.

Thanks again to the band Arlene’s World Famous Live.Rock Karaoke. http://www.arleneslivekaraoke.com/ for helping make our benefit a success. Thanks to all of the parents who showed up and to those who supported the event online. We appreciate all of you. There were more RSVP’s than ever with 119 responses. The best yet for a Jubilee. We raised more than last year AND came in slightly under budget! The Treasurer will make a brief report at this week’s General Parent Association Meeting on Wednesday Morning. We found a pink knit pom-pom hat and a pair of reading glasses if anyone is missing these items please reach out to James.
