Hello EVCS Parent Association Members,

Way to go to all of us who managed to get our kids to school in the loose vicinity of on-time, with clothing on, two shoes (matching or not), found our teachers and classrooms and bestowed our awesome kids to EVCS for what looks to be a dynamite year! It is not always easy, but we’re off to a great start!

The Parent Association would like to extend a big huge warm welcome (back) to all our members. As a person with a child attending EVCS, you are automatically a member of the Parent Association. You’re in! Congratulations!

You will be hearing more from us in the next weeks, but we would like to get a few important dates and ideas afloat.

Become a Class Parent!
The easiest and most direct way to get involved with your kid’s school life is to become a class parent. Each classroom needs at least 1-2 CP’s. But the more who volunteer the easier the job! email classparents@evcsnyc.org with questions.

That’s all for now, believe us, much more to come.
Looking forward to seeing you all in the yard some time soon!

lovingly,
Your PA executive board
