Dear Parents and Guardians,

For those who may have missed the 2019 FLeaVCS
including the big fish reveal or you simply want to see it again, check it out here. A huge shout out to PA President Catharine Lyons for spearheading this work of art-puppet and to all of the volunteer artists who participated to make it a reality! We hope to see the family of fish grow next year!

Students are enjoying the end of year projects, class trips, and school events. Be sure to check in with teachers for final shares dates!

If anyone is interested in becoming a class parent next year, please join us Friday, June 14th for a meeting and celebration around the class parent role following drop off in the yard! I hope to see you there!

Next week is a four day week, and we have an eager and determined team of parents hoping to pull together a Spring issue of the EVCS School Newspaper! Remind your child that this is not school work, this is a student-driven initiative. Without student news, there is no paper! If your child has an article to submit please send it along to us here with the Subject: EVCS Spring News and I will share it with the Team! Any event recap, reporting on class work, shares or trips are welcome and encouraged. We accept short stories, poetry, visual art, and photographic images too!

Let’s get more details about next week and beyond…

Kairos will bring each class a bunch of gum on Tuesday morning. You’re also welcome to bring your own.
