We hope everyone has enjoyed reading books for this year’s READING OLYMPICS! We are so proud of all our wonderful readers. This is the last week to complete reading logs and collect donations from sponsors. Maybe use this week to post (or email) a picture or video of your child telling all about the books they have read and ask for donations to support our PA. The link below can be used to collect donations online:

Reading Olympics – Send online link to your sponsor

Reading-Olympics  1

I hope you are all enjoying reading with your kids or watching them read independently for the 2017 READING OLYMPICS!

Sometimes getting sponsors is the hardest part. Consider sending emails to family and friends or posting in Facebook. Maybe have your child make a video about the books they are reading and explain how sponsors can donate $1 per book or hour of reading. Here is the link you can give to anyone who would like to sponsor your child. The money will go straight to the PA and your child will get credit for the donation.

Two weeks to go!

Happy reading,

Our Schools, Our Voices, Please take the Survey!

imgresDear Parents and Guardians,

LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD

The NYC School Surveys were handed out at Parent Teacher Conferences and we would like to have great participation. So far, only 12% of our families have completed the survey! We can do much better than that.

The information captured through the survey helps school leaders understand what key members of the school community say about the learning environment at each school. It also collects important information about a school’s ability to improve student achievement and can support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. EVCS is committed to democratic processes in our school, and this is one of the most direct ways to get involved.

Let’s see if we can get every family to take the NYC School Survey.

You can fill out the paper survey and mail it in or use the link below for the online survey using the unique code found on the form in your green envelope.

If you do not have your letter and need a code, please contact the Survey Hotline at 1-800-690-8603 and they will provide a code for you!

TAKE THE SURVEY ONLINE

Thanks very much for your support and involvement.
