Dear EVCS Students,
Our Core Value is Joy of Learning
Students at EVCS get regular instruction in art, music, dance, physical education and chess, and work with visiting teaching artists and specialists. We work in mixed age groups in clubs, get intensive enrichment programs through electives, and go on lots of field trips. We want your experiences at school to spark wonderment and awe and a love for learning!
Sometimes joy of learning can be experienced in small and subtle ways, like when you work hard on a challenging task and feel proud of your accomplishments. Other times joy of learning is experienced in really big and memorable ways. I want to share with you one such moment from a field trip the 5th graders went on a couple of weeks ago, fishing in the East River.
Our Core Value is Kindness
If you have already donated can or boxes of food for our annual Harvest Festival food drive, thank you for your kindness and generosity! If you haven’t yet, don’t worry there’s still time! And if you aren’t able to bring in cans or boxes of food this year there will be other ways to get involved at the harvest Festival, by singing loud and proud, carrying the food we have collected over to the Trinity Church food pantry and soup kitchen, and thanking the good people who work there every day to help address food insecurity in the East Village.
Thanks so much to our friends in the Kindergarten for hosting today, thanks to all of the parents who came this morning, huge thanks to the SWMM house band, and thank you to everyone who sang loud and proud. Have a great day and great week everyone.
