Participants submit their most inspired and original art and design for a chance to have it featured as part of S’well’s 2019 Earth Day programming. 100% of proceeds from the sale of the 2019 S’ip by S’well Earth Day bottle will go to support the NYC Department of Education’s sustainability initiatives. Deadline is January 14, 2019

Movie Night/Date Night Fundraiser
Coming Up in January! Stay tuned for details!



Help to keep track of personal begongings.
Remember to write your first and last names, along with the school EVCS on all articles of clothing and lunch items to help us reunite them with your child! These are terrific labels, and a sharpie on the inside tags also work well.


We need Bike Racks
The NYC Dept of Transportation has a portal for requesting sidewalk mounted bike racks. We are encouraging any and all folks to make a request for bike racks to be installed on 12th street. Below is a link for the massive-EVCS-parents-bike-racks-request from NYC DOT:
Building is 610 East 12th Street, Manhattan

The DOE Water Testing Team sent us a follow up to a January 27, 2017 water test in the school building. Read the Remediation Results Letter, here.

Families can visit Water Safety to learn more about the robust protocol the NYC DOE uses to ensure the safety of drinking water in each and every school, as well as to look up water test results for their child’s school.
