Reading-Olympics 1

Welcome Back! I hope you all had a wonderful spring break filled with rest, fun and lots of good books 🙂

The 2018 READING OLYMPICS has come to an end and we will be collecting sponsor sheets and donations this week. If you would like to keep the cash you collected and write a check, please make it out to EVCS Parents Association. If you still have the envelope that went home, put the sponsor sheet and donations inside and give it to your teacher. James and I will collect it from teachers each day. We really appreciate your participation in this event!

If you completed the Principal’s Challenge, please remember to bring your sponsor sheets to Bradley first and show him the books reflecting diversity that you read!

Have a wonderful day,

Allison Gordon (mom of Elias- 4th grade)

EVCS PA Meeting – This Wednesday morning

Hi Parents and Caregivers,

This Wednesday (3/26) morning is our March PA Meeting! 8:45 am in the auditorium.

If you can’t make it, the most important thing you need to know is that our Spring Gala is April 28th and we urgently need item donations for the Silent Auction! (online donation form).

We count on the funds we raise at the Gala to pay for so much of the great enrichments the PA supports at EVCS. The Silent Auction is how we raise this money.

This year’s “Free To Be…” Gala is free entry IF you RSVP in advance, otherwise $10 at the door. (RSVP here)

See you Wednesday!

Your PA Exec

PS: Tuesday morning pilates continues 8:30-9: 15 am in the movement room, pay what you can, all proceeds go to the PA! Get your belly strong and stand taller! Join the Pilates email list
