Dear Parents and Guardians,

It’s the end of another great week at EVCS!

We had two reports of Lice this week. We encourage folks to let teachers know if you have an encounter so we may remind everyone to be vigilant when it comes to lice. If you notice your child scratching their head more than usual, this could be a sign. Click here to read more about what to do and how to deter the critters.

There is more fun coming up next week including a Parent Workshop, back by popular demand: Meet Eric, our new PE instructor next Tuesday (January 23) following drop-off and learn how to “Keep Kids Active”. Details below!

Happy MLK Day!

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

Dear EVCS Family,

I hope you are all enjoying this day off in honor of the late great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It’s hard to imagine that it’s been more than 50 years since MLK delivered his brilliant I Have a Dream speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, and yet the call to action for racial equity and justice in the United States remains as relevant and urgent as ever. Angela Davis said, “In a racist society it is not enough to be non-racist. We must be anti-racist.” It is our goal at EVCS that our curriculum and pedagogy be anti-racist, and that our students learn to be anti-racist citizens. In that spirit, I hope that you will join me on Wednesday evening for a book talk of The New Jim Crow. We’ll meet from 6:30 to 8:00 in room 406. There will be snacks, something to drink and we’ll have childcare next door.

Also in the spirit of Our Core Value is social action, I hope to see many of you on Saturday at the 2018 Women’s March! Dust off your pink beanies and make some provocative signs! I’ll be there, cowbell in hand.

As ever,

Bradley
