Dear EVCS Students,
It’s been 7 weeks since we were all together at school, and I miss you guys so much! I’ve also really missed our School-Wide Morning Meetings, and even though it was fun to sing the songs by myself for you, I really want to hear your voices and share the music – because that’s what SWMM is all about. So, for the next SWMM I would like to ask YOU to please video yourself singing one of our SWMM songs – it can be alone, with your family, with instruments or acapella (just singing voices). Of course it’s optional – but if you send me a video of you singing a SWMM song, I will try to include it in next Monday’s School-Wide Morning Meeting!
And I have some exciting news to share. Even though our Multicultural Share was cancelled this year, we are still going to have a talent show! Any EVCS student who wants to participate will be able to share a 3-4 minute video recorded performance. We will be sending an email home this week with the details of how it will work and when you have to submit your video by, but please start thinking about if/what you would like to share. Fun!
Also I will be starting a read aloud this week of one of my all-time favorite chapter books, Jenny and the Cat Club. I will place a link in everyone’s Google Classroom starting this Wednesday, so look out for that.
I can’t wait until the time that we can be together again. I’ve been visiting your remote classrooms and I see how hard you are working, and I feel so proud of all of you for your persistence and determination. I know it hasn’t been easy, and that nothing compares to being in school together, but it won’t always be like this. Stay focused and keep up the great work, and we’ll be back at school one day soon!
I want to say a big thank you to everyone who sang loud and proud from their homes! Have a great day and great week everyone.
