Dear EVCS Students,
Welcome back! The next few weeks are super busy, with lots of events coming up. Some are just for kids, some are for the whole family and some are just for the grown ups.
First, this Friday is Movie Night at EVCS! We have four movies for your to choose from – Big Hero 6, Kubo and the 2 Strings, Hotel Transylvania 3 and My Neighbor Totoro. If you want to come you need to RSVP on the school website. The money that is raised will go to help our 5rth graders go on their camping trip this spring.
Next week is Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action. You will be hearing more about this in your classrooms, and we will also have a special SWMM on Wednesday, followed by a march around the block led by our marching band drumline!
Next Tuesday February 5 school will be closed for the Lunar New Year. 2019 is the year of the pig in the Chinese calendar. Happy new year to all who celebrate.
Parents – we have two great workshops coming up very soon, and more to come later this winter. First, this Thursday morning we are having a workshop on Seesaw, assessment and feedback, at 8:30 in the art room. Then on Tuesday February 12 at 5:30 we are having a workshop where you will learn about our school’s approach to teaching and learning math. You are encouraged to bring your kids, as there will be an interactive element.
And please mark your calendars for two very fun events coming up for adults. On March 3rd we will have the 2nd annual District 1 Battle of the Family Bands at the Bowery Ballroom! And our annual spring gala is happening earlier this year, on April 6th at Performance Space New York. Both will be great events – I hope to see you all there.
Thanks to the fifth graders for sharing and hosting today and thanks, as always, to the amazing EVCS SWMM House Band! And thanks to everyone who joined us today and sang loud and proud. Have a great day.
