Dear Families,

It’s fall, and that means the weather will be getting colder soon.
Please be sure to send your child with the appropriate clothing, so that they can enjoy outdoor play. Layering this time of year works however as we all know, the cooler temperatures will arrive. Be sure to write their names inside the garments.

Speaking of colder weather, this means that some of our plants will need to come inside for the winter. The teachers have taken a few and now we are reaching out to families. If you would be willing to “Foster an EVCS Plant” over the winter months and return it to the Tree of Knowing Garden in the spring, let me know.
This will be on a first come, first serve basis.
Thank you in advance for helping take care of the garden!

We have a new Lost and Found set up in the main lobby.
When you have a moment please pass by to quickly look through for any missing items. It is located on the west side of the lobby, left of the vending machine. We will put up a sign soon to identify the set up. If anyone has a few extra hangers, please feel free to bring them to me in the yard any morning during drop off. Thanks in advance.
