IMPORTANT General PA Meeting This Wed. Yahoo / Inbox

Hello EVCS Parents,

This year’s final regular General PA meeting is Wed. May 23rd 8:40AM. It will be held in David and Clara’s Kindergarten Classroom, on the 2nd floor.

On the Agenda:

Elections!

We will be voting for next year’s Executive Board officers: President, Treasurer, Secretary. I hate to get all dire, but if these positions are not filled the Parents Association will have to fold, as in, cease to exist. We need people to step up and nominate themselves! Especially for President.

If you have questions please contact the current officers (papresident@evcsnyc.org , treasurer@evcsnyc.org , Secretary@evcsnyc.org ) or the Nominating Committee or James.

Meet and Hear from District 1 Superintendent, Carry Chan!

Our new District Superintendent, Carry Chan, will be at our meeting to introduce herself and to hear from us parents at EVCS. Specifically she is eager to hear our thoughts about D1 middle schools, and what an “ideal” middle school would look like to our families.

This is a fantastic chance to let the Superintendent know what is important to you and what would be most desirable in a middle school. This is an especially great opportunity for families with 5th, 4th and 3rd grade students. Here are some things to think about before Wednesday’s meeting:

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Once again the multicultural share delivered! Seems like a long time ago – but thanks to everyone who was able to make it out and to those who shared their talent on stage and in the kitchen! The food was exceptional, the talent was terrific, and this year we have a new cookbook – please be sure to secure your copy by ordering one here!

The rain has supported our garden this week ! Happy plants and gardeners, as you can see! Be sure to stop in when you can to check out the garden and see what is growing!

Final After-school survey – Your response is needed

Dear EVCS families,

As this school year comes to an end we would like to ask you to complete one more survey to aid the AfterSchool@evcs Advisory Committee in identifying the level of satisfaction families have with regard to the MMCC afterschool program at EVCS. All responses are anonymous. We are looking for input from families who use Afterschool@evcs and from those who don’t. The survey is similar to the one sent in the Spring, with a few added components. We appreciate you taking the time to help with this so we can continue to monitor families level of satisfaction with the MMCC after-school program at EVCS. This survey should take no more than a few minutes to complete. The survey will be close in one week on May 24th. Please click here.

Thank you for your time,

AfterSchool@evcs Advisory Committee

Elections will be held at the May 23rd PA meeting

Hello Dear EVCS Parents,

As the end of June and the end of the school year are rapidly approaching (faster, maybe, for some of us parents of 5th graders) we still have a few important things left to do as The PA.

One biggie is to elect the Executive Board for next year. Our elections will be held at the May 23rd PA meeting (8:40AM) which is also our last regular PA meeting. So far the nominations we’ve received for all three positions are in the range of zero to no nominations.

Soooo, I thought it a good idea to send out a little more information for those of you who are considering stepping up and those who might not yet have considered it. The PA is made up of every parent and legal guardian of an EVCS student. Everyone is automatically a voting member and there are no mandatory dues (only voluntary suggested donations). Our PA is a critical fundraising and active community-building organization that helps make EVCS the special place it is. We support all the students and educators at EVCS through many different ways.

To help us stay organized and productive, we need our Executive Board. The board is comprised of the three mandatory elected officers; President, Treasurer and Secretary and the Chairs of the standing Committees. If we don’t elect a president, treasurer and secretary, we are not a functioning body. Each Executive board position (elected or committee chair) can be shared by two people, which is whole heartedly encouraged! Being part of the Executive is rewarding and fun. No previous experience is necessary, you just need a minimum amount of time, a strong commitment to seeing the job through and a somewhat flexible schedule. Also- not mandatory, but it helps- you should generally like EVCS, want to help participate in our events and preferably like working with other people. For the elected officers, the term is 1 year and there is a 2 term limit.

Please contact the nominating committee and/ or the current officers with any questions! (See below for job descriptions) Nominate yourself or someone here: https://goo.gl/forms/knEIya7FlU1RIsHI3

You can do this!

Catharine

your current PA President
