Life can be stressful when your child has a special need or disability. This interactive workshop will look at the various support services out there to bring you some needed relief. There are many programs, services, systems and strategies that will help you maximize the strengths, skills and talents of your child while helping with their special needs. Intervention programs, social skills groups, parent support groups, benefits and entitlements, laws that protect your rights, respite services, special developmental clinics, sources of sensory stimulation and much more will be explored. The goal of this workshop is to provide you with: information, motivation and inspiration.

Parents and children are invited to take part in a dance-making workshop with the dancers from the Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre! Dance together, learn together, and share your dances as a school community. Bagels and coffee will be served.
This program is free to families and is brought to you by the East Village Community School and Notes in Motion Outreach Dance Theatre www.notesinmotion.org
The information captured through the survey helps school leaders understand what key members of the school community say about the learning environment at each school. It also collects important information about a school’s ability to improve student achievement and can support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. EVCS is committed to democratic processes in our school, and this is one of the most direct ways to get involved.
Let’s see if we can get every family to take the NYC School Survey.
You can fill out the paper survey and mail it in or use the link below for the online survey using the unique code found on the form in your green envelope.
If you do not have your letter and need a code, please contact the Survey Hotline at 1-800-690-8603 and they will provide a code for you!
Thanks very much for your support and involvement.
