EVCS Weekly March 11 – 15

Dear Parents and Guardians,

It was great to see so many of you out on Sunday supporting the D1 Family Bands! The Earth School took home the trophy this year – but you can be sure that EVCS will be back in it to win it in 2020!

The Reading Olympics is in full swing this month – another friendly reminder to keep on reading, logging and getting sponsors! A great way to get sponsors is to email friends, or ask neighbors and relatives. Here is a link you can share: Online Sponsor Support Link If you need another paper form to log on to, please visit the EVCS bulletin board in the lobby for another copy and to see other helpful information.

And if you have a child born in 2015, don’t forget to apply for PreK by March 15th! Follow these important directions to indicate you’re already an EVCS family too to receive priority!

Let’s see what is coming up next week and beyond…

All parents are welcome to this one hour workshop to discuss how we can best support our kids as they navigate friendships.
– Does your child seem to have on-again-off-again friendships?
– Struggle to feel included when playing with classmates?
– Not know how to fix tricky friendships?



You will receive a green envelope at Parent Teacher Conferences.

It is our hope that every family will take the time to fill out this survey.


This year we will go for 100% participation.
