Hello EVCS Parent Association Members,

Way to go to all of us who managed to get our kids to school in the loose vicinity of on-time, with clothing on, two shoes (matching or not), found our teachers and classrooms and bestowed our awesome kids to EVCS for what looks to be a dynamite year! It is not always easy, but we’re off to a great start!

The Parent Association would like to extend a big huge warm welcome (back) to all our members. As a person with a child attending EVCS, you are automatically a member of the Parent Association. You’re in! Congratulations!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

What a great school picnic and field day! Thanks to everyone who was able to make it out and to the staff for putting together such a wonderful end of year celebration. The refreshing watermelon and lemonade were appreciated by all! Your support helps make this annual event a huge success each year!

Next week will be our last full week of school for the year! Monday we kick off with a book & bake sale hosted by our 4th Grade classes followed by the final School Wide Morning meeting for the year.
Graduation and the Final PA meeting – celebrating our teachers are also important events next week!

Reminder, if you are interested in checking out or participating in our Partnership with The Third Street Music School they are hosting an Open House next week on Tuesday. A flyer went home and details are below. This is an annual opportunity and you must take your child with you to the open house. If you or your child are not quite ready yet, this will come around again next year.
