Hello EVCS Parents,
This year’s final regular General PA meeting is Wed. May 23rd 8:40AM. It will be held in David and Clara’s Kindergarten Classroom, on the 2nd floor.
On the Agenda:
We will be voting for next year’s Executive Board officers: President, Treasurer, Secretary. I hate to get all dire, but if these positions are not filled the Parents Association will have to fold, as in, cease to exist. We need people to step up and nominate themselves! Especially for President.
If you have questions please contact the current officers (email@example.com , firstname.lastname@example.org , Secretary@evcsnyc.org ) or the Nominating Committee or James.
Meet and Hear from District 1 Superintendent, Carry Chan!
Our new District Superintendent, Carry Chan, will be at our meeting to introduce herself and to hear from us parents at EVCS. Specifically she is eager to hear our thoughts about D1 middle schools, and what an “ideal” middle school would look like to our families.
This is a fantastic chance to let the Superintendent know what is important to you and what would be most desirable in a middle school. This is an especially great opportunity for families with 5th, 4th and 3rd grade students. Here are some things to think about before Wednesday’s meeting:
Thank you to all the parents who came! Get comfy, here is a re-cap of most of the stuff we talked about…
The Battle of the District 1 Bands is ON!
Get your sitter lined up, ‘cause on March 4th at the New Time: 4:30-7:30PM EVCS’s Family Band will be going up against 3 other District 1 family Bands for the title, trophy and glory! The event will be held at Bowery Ballroom, 6 Delancey. Tickets $20. 21+. (Proceeds will be split between the participating band’s schools.) Buy Tickets here
The 3 School New Bottle Filling Water Fountain Project took a great leap forward.
On Tuesday of this week the three schools’ building wellness committee met with a CWS parent and former DEP deputy commissioner to discuss water and fountain options. He offered a great deal of insight and information about NYC water quality, talked about potential sources of lead in water and gave clarity to the filtered vs unfiltered discussion. It was a relief to learn that NYC continues to have some of the cleanest municipal water in the world (!) and that the risk of a child getting lead poisoning or even elevated lead in their system from drinking water from any NYC public building is basically nil. The committee agreed that we will adjust our objective and pursue getting unfiltered units installed. Since the DOE and DEP considered filtered units unnecessary and are actually against installing them in schools, our requisite for them was holding us up. Changing the type of station we are trying get here removes a big obstacle to getting them!
