Dear EVCS Students,
Welcome back to another week of school. Usually at our School-Wide Morning Meetings we check in on one of our core values, discuss what it means to us, and think about how we can apply it in our daily lives at school. We have five core values at EVCS.
Social Action/Social Justice
Joy of Learning
Today we are going to take a closer look at our core value social action.
Social action involves identifying things that are wrong in our world and then taking steps to make them better. One of the best ways we can make a difference in the world is by making a small impact right here in our own community. We have a tradition at EVCS that every year our school collects cans and boxes of food for our annual Harvest Festival. The food we collect is then donated to a local soup kitchen that helps to feed people in our neighborhood who don’t have enough to eat. We believe that everyone should have enough food to eat, and that no one should be hungry. Will you help us collect food for our Harvest Festival?
This year the Harvest Festival will be on Wednesday November 21st. You can start bringing in food to donate this week. And new this year: Our Harvest festival procession to Trinity church soup kitchen and pantry will be led by the EVCS marching band drumline!
This Saturday is our annual Fall Ball! Give a thumbs up if you will be coming. Turn to the person next to you and share what will you be dressing up as this year. We can’t wait to see you there in your costumes.
Big thanks so much to all of the parents who came this morning, huge thanks to the SWMM house band, and thank you to everyone who sang loud and proud. Have a great day and great week everyone.
