Recap of Wednesday PA Meeting

Hi EVCS Families,

Thank you to everyone who came yesterday morning’s PA meeting! For those of you who couldn’t make it, here is a brief re-cap. The full meeting minutes will be posted to the website in the next few days.

The next “Between the World and MeCoffee with Bradley” will be next Tuesday,1/24, 5:30pm.

It will be an open conversation about the book Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates. This #1 New York Times Best seller is written as a series of letters to the author’s teenage son as an examination of race in America. Reading the book is encouraged but by no means necessary to be a part of this discussion.

Pre-K Application process for 2017-18 school year has begun.
