EVCS Weekly Oct 22-26

Screen Shot 2018-10-19 at 2.44.53 PM

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We had a great week at EVCS! With the temperatures shifting and dropping, it’s time to round up your warm gear and layer up. EVCS policy is to be outside unless it is precipitating – so unless it is raining or snowing, expect to be outside! We believe that children benefit from outdoor play, so please count on outdoor recess and make sure your child has appropriate cold weather clothing labeled with your child’s first and last name!!

Let’s see what’s happening next week…
