Dear Parents and Guardians,

Our phones have been down for some time now,
and we are not sure when the main line will be back up.
Please use this number until further notice
212-844-4900 – Dial 3 to reach EVCS.

We had a great week and played outside every day!
Be sure to layer up and dress warm on cold days – we still go outside!
Remember to label all items so that we can reunite them with your kids.
These are terrific labels, or use a Sharpie on the inside tags!

Let’s see what is coming up next week…

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The Harvest Festival lifted spirits today.

We collected nearly 2000 cans this year, it may be a record! Thank you to all of our parent volunteers, to Georga for leading us in song, and to Terry and the EVCS Drumline who helped set the tempo and led everyone to the soup kitchen in time!

A shout out to brothers Neil (5th Grade) and Ivan (2nd Grade) for their amazing help yesterday moving donations to the lobby! The beautiful signs on stage were made by Sehra, Michael (PreK) and Max’s (3rd Grade) mom. Sullivan (1st Grade) shared visual art works packed up as a gifts for the soup kitchen to share with members and guests who visit. Our Core Values were in full gear today.

Thank you to everyone for participating this year with your donations and taking action that benefits our community – that is what it’s all about.

Please see link below to volunteer!

The EVCS PA Holiday Market Committee is gearing up for another makers fair Monday, December 10. For those who would like to participate as a vendor please see the details below. This is the time to reserve a table!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Next week is short but full, with no school on Monday and 11:30 dismissal on Thursday. But it’s conferences week! November Progress Reports will be given out at conferences. Please be sure to set up a meeting with your teachers if you have not done so already.

The EVCS Annual Harvest Festival is on. Please bring what you CAN! It is easier to carry a couple of cans at a time and the students get more out of it by physically bringing some of the items themselves and putting them in the collection bins near their classroom. We will continue to collect items through November 21. Thank you for your contributions and support!

Let’s take a closer look at next week and see what else is coming up…

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We had a great week at EVCS! With the temperatures shifting and dropping, it’s time to round up your warm gear and layer up. EVCS policy is to be outside unless it is precipitating – so unless it is raining or snowing, expect to be outside! We believe that children benefit from outdoor play, so please count on outdoor recess and make sure your child has appropriate cold weather clothing labeled with your child’s first and last name!!

Let’s see what’s happening next week…
