Dear EVCS Families,
Yeowza – It was a Screaming, Bouncing Ball!
YES! We had another amazing Fall Ball thanks to all of you!
Thank you to everyone who attended and created a fabulous Fall Ball 2014. It was a magical day filled with costumed friends reveling and sharing in school spirit.
So many people helped organize this year’s event, naming each of them would amount to reciting the school enrollment list! But some people went above and beyond the call, and we want to give them a big public shout out of gratitude:
Thanks to the EVCS Events Committee for navigating the entire event.
