Dear Parents and Guardians,

The EVCS Harvest Festival has officially kicked off with the Food Drive!

Classes have set up food collection bins so you can start to mobilize your efforts and bring items directly to the classrooms, the students will be counting.

This month-long event is an opportunity to teach our children about food equity. The event will culminate on Wednesday, November 27 including a musical gathering in the auditorium and a school-wide walk over to the Trinity Church on 9th Street led by our very own EVCS drum line!
Be sure to put this on your calendar!
