Thanks again to all who made our Festival of Lights a huge success this year!
It was a packed house for a great show!

During the break, I hope that you find time to unwind, get outside and regroup!

Thanks to the Parent Association for contributing delicious food to our annual staff party last week. Everyone enjoyed this generous gift!

EVCS Weekly, December 12

Dear Families and Guardians,

It’s hard to believe that it’s December and the new year is around the corner. We have been lucky so far with the mild weather but colder temperatures are sure to find us at some point.

DROP-OFF, DISMISSAL, AND RECESS IN THE WINTER: Some of you have been asking about where to go with your children, or where to pick up your children, when it is particularly cold outside. EVCS policy is to be outside unless it is precipitating – so unless it is raining or snowing, expect to be outside!

That’s the same criteria we use to determine whether or not we take the kids out for recess. 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!!

When we do have an indoor arrival, students gather in the cafeteria. EVCS staff will then transition students upstairs to their classrooms. When we have an indoor dismissal, pick up for all students is in their classrooms. Please continue to use the door at the top of the schoolyard ramp on those days too – CWS is in the lobby during that time.



Monday, December 12 – School Wide Morning Meeting and Bake Sale
8:50 p.m. – 9:15 p.m. In the Auditorium.
Bring your own mug, and get 25¢ off coffee at the 1st G Bake Sale Monday.

Wednesday, December 14 – Next general Parent Association Meeting
5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. In the Cafeteria.

Thursday, December 15 – SLT Meeting
3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. In the Library.

Saturday, December 17th – Parent Workshop for Emotional Intelligence
9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. In the Auditorium.
If you missed the sign-up deadline, email Liz at ewanttaja@schools.nyc.govto see if space is still available.

Wednesday, December 21Festival of Lights
9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. In the Auditorium.
The students are preparing for this wonderful annual gathering! All of our grades will be performing, from Pre-K to 5th Grade. The EVCS Family Band will provide accompaniment and festive choral interludes with a special horn section, and they are not to be missed! This is a great winter celebration for our whole school community. Hope to see you there!

Have a nice weekend.

All best wishes,
