Dear Families,

The school year finally feels underway, kids are adjusted, routines have been established and the Fall weather has arrived. We hope you have had a chance to make it to a School Wide Morning Meeting, if not, please consider making some time to come to the next one because there is really no better way to start your week, the calendar is HERE.

We also want to let you know that the EVCS Parent Association is in the middle of our biggest fundraiser of the year. It’s not an event. You don’t have to get dressed up or find a babysitter or get on stage and sing (that is coming later).

Please contribute today

But YOU do need to take action. Right now.

Between now and the end of the year, the Parent Association hopes to raise more than half the money we need to help make EVCS the special place that it is via direct family contributions. This year we are asking each family to give $650. We understand that for some families this really is a lot – please only donate what you can. We also know that some families can give more, and we welcome that. If you are one of those families, please consider sponsoring an additional family, or giving whatever you can to help us meet our goals. Donations can be split up into manageable monthly payments throughout the school year and all donations are tax deductible.

We are truly a diverse community and if we work together we can accomplish our goals and raise all that we need to support the amazing extra programs that our kids enjoy each year. See HERE for an easy to digest visual that will show you exactly what the PA funds support.

And one last thing – we are aiming for 100% family participation. Last year fewer than one third of our families made a contribution at any level. We know we can do better. Please know that all donations are anonymous and are only seen by the EVCS PA Treasurers.
