EVCS General PA meeting this Wednesday Evening

Dear EVCS Families,

This Wednesday evening we will hold our monthly general PA meeting. Wednesday 10/23 at 6PM. Free Childcare and pizza are available.

On the agenda we will have 2 capital expense proposals:
1. A proposal to purchase additional drums for the Drum Line program that will enable expanding it to 20 drummers. This expense is $2953.07
2. A proposal to purchase a folding 10×10 E-Z Up tent to be used for gloomy / sunny day Bake Sales. This expense is $139.00.

Both expenses are to be paid out from the reserve fund: funds that were raised and have not been put to use in past years and cannot be used for this year’s operating budget.

We will need to approve our September General PA meeting minutes.

We will hear an update from our treasurers about the performance of our operating budget.

An initiative to bring Children Book authors to visit the school and meet with students.

Discussion on potential collaborations with CWS and PS/MS 34 and District Wide issues.

Our Committees are in need of new chairs:
The Green and Wellness Committee who worked in the past on environmental initiatives in the school (biodegradable lunch trays, water fountains, Textile recycling drives).

The Social Action Committee who works on involvement of the school community with relevant issues. Lately it organized a group of families who marched together at School Strike for the climate.

The Diversity Committee who works on inclusion and diversity in the school community and curriculum.

The Fundraising Committee who works on ways to get the funds needed for our operating budget and will organize our Spring Gala.

We just passed the $20,000 mark on our Family Contribution Drive. We aim to raise $45,000. Suggested amount is $500 per family in the school but any amount counts.

See you Wednesday evening,
PA Exec team
