EVCS Weekly, Friday, October 5

Dear EVCS Parents and Guardians,

This has been a beautiful week and the kids are beginning to get more familiar with routines both on and off line. Eric held physical education outdoors and practiced safe social distancing on the turf! Many students ate lunch outside and the kids had a great time building with the outdoor blocks in the Tree of Knowing Garden.
