Dear EVCS Families,

Thank you for bringing coats this week for the EVCS Winter Coat Drive.
In order for our families to benefit from the coat drive before donating to NY Cares, there will be a table set up outside on the sidewalk Monday and Tuesday mornings from 8:15 – 9:00 a.m. for anyone interested in looking through the items (or for those who would like to make a last minute drop off to the collection!) So if you found yourself in need for a new coat for your child or self this weekend, please check the table this week!

It was great to see some of you on the Parent Association Zoom Call this week. The next meeting will be Wednesday, January 27 at 5:00 p.m. The PA President sends out a link each month for everyone to join the meeting. You can catch up with what is happening via the minutes posted on our website following each meeting. Join when you can, this is one way to get to know some of your community members in these isolating times.

Let’s see what else is happening before we break …
