THANKS FOR GIVING! and a FEW REMINDERS before we break

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 2.23.59 PMDear Families

In case you were wondering, tomorrow, Wednesday November 25
is a full day of school. EVCS After-school will also be running as usual.

Thanks to everyone for the generous contributions to the Harvest Festival this year!
WE WENT BEYOND THE GOAL !
We collected over 1400 cans this year! This could be a record!

The 5th graders toted items to the yard, the classes gathered, Georga led us in song and we all walked to the Trinity Church on B with cans in hand!

A BIG THANKS TO THE HARVEST FESTIVAL COMMITTEE, ALL OF THE STUDENTS
AND FAMILIES FOR EVERY CONTRIBUTION.

The Trinity volunteers were very happy. Please be sure to let your kids know what a wonderful effort they made and accomplished today. What a gift it is to help in this way. The soup kitchen serves over 200 people a day at times and the pantry items that we shared today will go to help many families this Thanksgiving.

If you missed the celebration this am – the good news is that we will do it all over again in 2016!
