Dear EVCS Families,

I am inspired by our students and all of you every day! Despite the challenges and distractions this week we had a successful and energized week. Many families had a chance to speak directly with teachers for conferences. If you still need to set a time to meet and talk about your child, please reach out and do so, there is still time.
