Dear Parents and Guardians,

Thank you, parents!
We collected nearly 1500 cans this year! Thank you to all of our parent volunteers, to Georga for leading us in song, to Reiko and Camilla for the wonderful banner and 3D fruits and veggies, the family band and to Terry and the EVCS Drumline who helped set the tempo and led everyone to the soup kitchen in time!

A shout out and thanks to Nina, Hadar, Trinidad, Lara, Jen, Nicole, Louis, Choresh, Dorit, Kate, Emily, Scott and Shahar for helping schlep the cans – and to all of you who showed up on the scene to lend a hand, thank you! Our Core Values were in full gear today.

Thank you to everyone for participating this year with your donations and taking action that benefits our community – that is what it’s all about.

Green Initiative
Making Classroom Recycling Lids!
Thursday 12/5/19 in the afternoon:
3:30-5:30 in room 413 (Art Room)
Small personal actions may feel trivial, but if we all collectively make sustainable choices, the cumulative effect is powerful. To that end, we want to improve classroom recycling through a simple “bin lid making” initiative. Parents with their kids are invited to help make the lids! This is not a drop-off project. The goal is to use copy paper lids. We’ll cut holes corresponding to paper (a narrow rectangle) and glass/metal (a medium circle) to help students/teachers pause a moment and recycle properly. RSVP Be part of the solution!

Theatre Arts Opportunity at EVCS for After School on Fridays

Willy Wonka Kids with Child’s Play NY
Improvisation and theater games help stoke creativity, create an ensemble and develop the spirit of play as students rehearse a play in a semester. A great session for kids to increase confidence, craft, and their ability to work as part of an ensemble. Kids learn how to create a character from a place of instinct and play. They also amass skills in singing, dance, speech, and improvisation taught by master teachers and performers at the top of their field. The class culminates in a final performance for the community.

The delicious adventures experienced by Charlie Bucket on his visit to Willy Wonka’s mysterious chocolate factory light up the stage in this captivating adaptation of Roald Dahl’s fantastical tale. Featuring the enchanting songs from the 1971 film starring Gene Wilder, in addition to a host of fun new songs, Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka Kids is a scrumdiddlyumptious musical guaranteed to delight everyone’s sweet tooth.

The students involved will put on a production of Willy Wonka Kids!
Space is limited and spots will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
