Dear EVCS families,
It was wonderful to see so many of you at our Festival of Lights on Wednesday! The kids looked and sounded fantastic – big thanks to our music teacher Stephanie for putting the entire program together. Another big thanks goes out to the Family Band. Was that not the swingingest version of Greensleeves you’ve ever heard?
I wanted to touch base before we unplug for the holidays to update you on a couple of things, including our diversity in admissions initiative. Last month there was an article in the Times that led some to believe the initiative was on hold. I’m not sure if that piece qualifies as “fake news”, but it was misleading. I’m here to tell you that the initiative is most definitely not on hold. In the admissions cycle for the 2017-2018 school year, students who qualify for free or reduced price lunch, or who are English Language Learners, will be given priority for 50% of our Pre-K and Kindergarten seats. Students who have older siblings at EVCS and those who were here for Pre-K will still be given top priority for seats. I’m confident that this initiative will represent a positive and important step for our school, and I’m proud that we are a part of it. Continue reading
Dear Parents and Guardians,
The Festival of Lights is coming up next week on Wednesday, December 18th in the auditorium at 9:00 a.m.! All of our classes will be performing that morning as well as our EVCS choir and groups of talented student musicians! Hope to see you there.
The 3rd Grade parents will also hold a bake sale in the yard beforehand, with EVCS CDs, t-shirts, and other goodies on sale, too!
Ladies and Gents,
First I want to extend a warm welcome to attend AfterSchool’s annual Low Key Open House all next week, December 19 – 23 from 4:30 – 5PM. We have extended this effort this year to the entire program. We understand that there are heavy demands on your time, especially at this time of year parents. Please do not put too much pressure on yourselves as we are, for the time being, planning on end of semester shares (circa mid February). Quick disclaimer – we are in an unprecedented moment. We have a great deal going on in preparation for a new partnership with MMCC (http://www.mmcc.org/) about which you have heard from Principal Bradley, at Parent Association, AfterSchool Advisory Committee and other meetings of late. **I promise to be in touch with more details about this soon.** But for now, I ask your understanding as we’ve been focused on making preparations and bracing ourselves for shifts and changes accordingly. Also, we are shooting for end of semester shares but are not completely certain what to expect as we approach the future.
Second, thanks to our own Moses St. Bernard, an invitation to a holiday concert at Carnegie Hall has been extended to our families. Moses writes…
