EVCS Weekly, October 24

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We have had an exciting week with the launching of our Playground renovation! The Trust for Public Land’s staff led the first of several design sessions this week with the three schools! Our kids are thrilled to be a part of the process. Examples of completed projects are posted on the bulletin boards in the lobby.

Relief for people in Haiti.

A huge thanks goes out to everyone who contributed to the EVCS collection effort for Haiti. We collected over 5 generous boxes full of products. EVCS parents have identified and partnered with organizations who have the capability to ship supplies and get these items directly to groups on the ground. Our contributions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
