Dear EVCS Families,
We hope you are all having a relaxing summer. In a few weeks we will welcome back another school year! We’d like to introduce ourselves and extend a warm hello to our new families. I am Julie Harwood, and I have two children at EVCS: Asher, who will be going into 3rd grade and Ellie, who will be entering 1st grade. And I am Jenny Kronenfeld, and my twins Alex(andra) and Jesse will both be entering 3rd grade this fall.
We serve as the Class Parent Co-Chairs on the Parent Association and would like to make a pitch to all of you about volunteering to be a class parent. Class Parents support your child’s teacher and serve as a liaison between your teacher and the other families in your class.
This support can take many different forms, including organizing snack schedules, planning class trips and parties, writing a class newsletter and organizing teacher celebrations for the holidays. You also can help organize the Sponsor-a-Classroom fundraising effort to ensure that each classroom has the funds the teachers need for special projects and other activities. Being a Class Parent is an excellent way to volunteer for school, especially for those of you limited on time — it is up to you how much time you are able to contribute. Most classes have between 2-3 class parents to share the responsibility.
If you decide to volunteer, contact your teacher and please drop us an email so we can put you on the Class Parent Google Group, where I will share important information from the PA to distribute to your classes, as well as provide a place for class parents to talk to each other, share ideas, and ask questions.
Julie Harwood and Jenny Kronenfeld
