Dear EVCS Families,
It’s hard to believe, but we’re more than halfway through this school year already! Your child’s mid-year reports will be going home today. Please look in your child’s backpack today for these comprehensive reports. Our teachers have been working tirelessly to create these meaningful documents full of examples of your child’s work, areas for celebration, next steps and end-of-year goals. Please review the mid-year reports carefully before your Parent-Teacher Conferences next week.
Your child’s teacher(s) will reach out to your directly (if they haven’t already) to set up a conference. Please be sure to follow-up with them directly to find a date and time that works for you.
If you would like to meet with Maggie (Art), Stephanie (Music), or Reina (Dance) to discuss your child’s progress, please stop in during their open-conference times. All three teachers will be available to meet with you in the Art Studio (Room 413) on Wednesday, 3/2/16 from 5:00-7:30 pm and on Thursday, 3/3/16 from 12:20-2:50 pm.
Also remember that due to Parent-Teacher Conferences dismissal on Thursday, 3/3/16, is at 11:30 am. Please be on time to pick up your children so that our teachers can begin their conferences with other parents on time.
Many thanks and happy reading!

The resolution was developed by the CEC, or Community Education Council, to present to Chancellor Carmen Farina at the Town Hall meeting this coming Tuesday, Feb. 23. (For more information on attending the meeting, which offers childcare, visit the CEC website at cecd1.org.)
A total of 134 people took our survey, and while more families than not supported signing the resolution, and particularly supported the goals of “Controlled Choice” toward providing a high-quality integrated education for District 1 students, many parents expressed questions and doubts about the resolution and how it best supported a workable roll-out of the proposed policy. These were considered substantial enough that EVCS leadership decided to not sign the resolution in its current form, but instead developed the alternate statement below: Continue reading
