Dear Parents and Guardians,

We are back at it and March is here! Get ready for an action packed transition into spring!

The Reading Olympics has begun! And there will be a book sale in the yard each Monday this month. Please feel free to purchase, contribute, swap or donate books. Proceeds will be part of the Reading Olympics fundraiser that helps contribute to the Parent Association efforts! This is a win-win for all!

Remember this Sunday is the District 1 Battle of the Family Bands event! We hope some of you can come out to support EVCS Family Band in their battle to bring home the trophy! Get tickets online or at the door!

SCHOOL SURVEY COMING UP

This year we will go for 100% participation.

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

What is the NYC School Survey?
Each year, all parents, teachers, and students in grades 6-12 take the NYC School Survey. The survey is aligned to the DOE’s Framework for Great Schools. It is designed to collect important information about each school’s ability to support student success. We need your help by completing the survey. At conferences you will be given a green envelope that contains a code.You may fill out the paper form or go online. We will have computers available in the main office room 205 during conference week. Please make an effort to complete the survey online or by dropping it in the box labeled Parent Survey. Thank you for taking this seriously and filing our the survey!

How is the Survey information used?
School leaders use feedback from the survey to reflect and make improvements to schools and programs. The results are also used to help measure school quality.
