EVCS Parent Association End-of-the-Year Updates

Hello EVCS Families,

We’re in the final stretch now. Happy June to everybody!

Before I get to the meat of it… Tomorrow June 3rd is the last School Wide Morning Meeting of the year! Last chance to hear the SWMM Family band and sing along with the kids, loud and proud, until next fall. Plus tomorrow will be a celebration of two of our beloved teachers who are retiring this year, Roberta and Georga. Super Special SWMM to be at, if you can.  And yes there will be a bake sale.

We held our last General PA meeting of the Year on May 23rd. Thank you to all who came! Congratulations to Bob dad of Julian who won our attendance raffle ($20 from Trader Joe’s) Whoot Whoot! 

We elected our 2019-20 Executive officers. 

Congratulations and Thank you to all who will be joining the Executive board next year:

Co Presidents: Choresh Wald and Heather Hubbs
Co Treasurers: Carol Yoon and Wes Henderson
Co Secretary: Travis Fox (and Position Available!)
Co Vice Presidents: Catharine Lyons and Yuri Omelchenko

In addition to these jobs, the Exec Board is made up of the chairpeople of each of our standing committees. If you would like to  head a committee and be on the Executive Board, or want more info,  please contact the committee or papresident@evcsnyc.org (see below for list and emails).  We still need a co-secretary.

If you are interested in getting more involved but aren’t ready to chair a committee you might consider being a Class Parent. 

There is a Class-Parent meet up June 14th after drop-off. All current class parents and anyone interested in learning more, are encouraged to come! Just in case… please note- and do not fear- that by coming to this meeting YOU ARE IN NO WAY COMMITTING TO BE A CLASS PARENT NEXT YEAR. We just want and need your thoughts and ideas.

Another way to participate in the school is the SLT. The School leadership Team is a DOE mandated committee of teachers/ staff and parents that discuss school policy at monthly meetings. There are 3 parent seats open next year. We will hold SLT elections at the first PA meeting in September. (Positions on the SLT are a 2 year term). If you have questions, email papresident@evcsnyc.org.

We need all Gala Auction item winners to finalize their purchases and pick up their goods. Please contact events@evcsnyc.org. Items are currently in the office- Room 205

Thursday, June 20th is our Annual PA End-of-Year Appreciation Party. Please join your fellow PA members (aka all of us) with the teachers and staff to celebrate the year. Held at the ROOST , 222 Ave B. 5:30-8PM. Childcare provided at EVCS for current students- RSVP here.  Snacks. Cash Bar. Good Times. (we will be treating the teachers to their libations).
