exploding thermoDear All,

Thank you. We have not just met our goal for family contributions – we have exceeded it. In fact, to date The EVCS PA has raised $46,545 from family donations. What an amazing way to start 2018!

Because of your support our 4th and 5th graders are sailing with the South Street Seaport Museum, 2nd, 4th and 5th graders have the opportunity to learn and improve their chess skills, all of our kids are heading out on regular field trips without having to pay any fees and so much more – click HERE to see exactly what the PA Funds that you provided support.

From now until June you can expect emails from us to focus on fun events like The District One Battle of the Bands, The Spring Gala and Auction, FleaVCS in Tompkins Square Park and more movie nights.

We are ALWAYS looking for volunteers so if you are interested in getting to know more people in our community, helping out and having fun, please email parents@evcsnyc.org to add yourself to the volunteer email list. Signing up does not commit you for anything, it just means you will be the first one we reach out to when we need help. We hope hundreds of people will sign up and especially families who are new to our community.

Wishing everyone peace and prosperity in the New Year and lots more mingling now that we are back to arrival and dismissal in the school yard.

Warmly,
Nina & Nandi

EVCS Local Craft Fair this Wednesday

 

Dear All,

Join us at the EVCS Holiday Craft Fair this Wednesday, Dec 6 from 8-10:30am & 2-6pm in the EVCS lobby!

Buying hand made gifts from makers in our community is more than just a convenient way to find something special. By supporting local artisans you are helping to make sure that the East Village and NYC continue to be a place where artists and local business people can live and thrive. And a percentage of each sale will go towards the EVCS PA – really, what could be better?

But wait, there is more…. EVCS parent Josephine Schiele will be setting up a family portrait station from 2-6PM in the lobby. Perfect for holiday cards or gifts, an emailed digital photo will cost $10 and all proceeds go to the EVCS PA. Drop in only, no need to sign up.

Sincerely,
EVCS Fundraising Committee

PS – there will be another holiday craft fair on Dec 20th during the Festival of Lights
PPS – spread the word, all are invited / EVCS Lobby, 610 East 12th Street (Between Ave B and Ave C)

We Forgot Wednesday

Dear EVCS Families,

Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday – it sort of seems like there is something you need to be doing every day of the week!

Which is why we are coming to you today, on We Forgot Wednesday. Perhaps you have been meaning to make that family contribution of $650 to EVCS but with all the things to do you just keep forgetting – we get that. After all, we forgot to send out an email on Giving Tuesday!

But don’t worry, your contribution to the EVCS PA is just as needed today as any other day of the year. And as always, all donations to the EVCS PA are fully tax deductible and every dollar you give goes to benefit the students at EVCS. Click to donate or if you prefer, you can drop a check in the EVCS PA mail box next to Stacey’s desk in the EVCS main office.

Please contribute today

Remember – only you can turn We Forgot Wednesday into Thank God I Took Care of That Thursday!

Sincerely,
Nandi Bosia, Nkosi and Njideka’s mom

Help us reach our goal!

EVCS-Thermo 27 465

Dear All,

Thank you to everyone who made a donation. Our thermometer is moving… but we still have a long way to go!

For those who have not yet donated, we want to remind you of a few things to provide some motivation:

1. For the past several years class parents were asked to raise funds for their classroom, this was called Sponsor a Classroom. The result was that some classrooms were routinely over funded and others struggled. This seemed unfair so starting this year all classrooms will receive $1,000 from the PA. That means, no more asks after shares. It also means that donating to the PA will directly support pipe cleaners and googly eyes and field trips for your child.
2. Were you pleasantly surprised when you got the welcome letter from teachers in August and saw that there were very few supplies you needed to purchase? That is because the supplies were purchased in bulk for each class. And even though August seems like a million years ago at this point, we hope you will pay forward these savings to the PA.
Please contribute today

Thank you for your support,
Nina & Nandi

Donation based Pilates Mat Class @ EVCS

Pilates

We are happy to introduce a new parent-led activity with ALL proceeds going to the EVCS PA!

LuAnn Leonard-Johns, EVCS parent and certified Pilates instructor, has offered to teach a weekly Pilates Mat class on Tuesday mornings after drop off. Our first class will be Tuesday October 24 from 8:30-9:15 in the movement room (Room 412) on the 4th floor.

LuAnn has 14 years of teaching experience in the Joseph Pilates technique and will lead us through a series of core strengthening and muscle lengthening exercises. No prior experience necessary.

The suggested donation for the class is $10 and ALL proceeds will go to the EVCS PA. What a great way to start your day and get fit with friends while supporting EVCS. Please bring a yoga mat if you have one (we also will have some on hand).

Brought to you by the EVCS Fundraising Committee
