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.

A Fabulous Fall Ball 2016, Thanks to your generosity

Screen Shot 2016-11-01 at 11.31.14 PM

Dear EVCS Families

We hope everyone had a blast at the Fall Ball!
We couldn’t have asked for a nicer day (my first fall ball was during a blizzard, literally) and it was great to see so many families come out to support the school and have fun in the process.

It was truly a group effort and each team nailed it.
From the fabulous food and desserts to the craft activities and games, to the very scary haunted house, an outrageous obstacle course, to the photo booth and bouncy pumpkin, a great time was had by all.
