Dear Parents and Guardians,

Two full loads of goods were collected from EVCSers this week and delivered to the Firehouse on East 2nd Street for the Puerto Rico Relief effort. Thank you for your generous contributions! A shout out to Jenny, Ron and the EVCS students for helping organize and transport the goods to the firehouse. We are looking for more ways to help. Our school staff has been brainstorming short term and long term goals for further ways to support Puerto Rico. If you have an idea to share with us, please reach out to us.
