Pride Day at EVCS!
The month of June was chosen for LGBTQ Pride Month to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which occurred at the end of June 1969. As a result, many pride events are being held during this month to recognize the impact LGBT people have had in the world. In celebration of Pride Month, a group of LGBTQ parents from EVCS will be hosting a dedicated bake sale on Monday, June 24th. All proceeds go to an LGBTQ charity. Bring your own rainbow item to contribute to the sale!

And throughout the day. there will be classroom readings of this year’s school-wide book, Stonewall by Rob Sanders. A detailed sign-up will be shared out via class parents soon!
