Hello EVCS PA Members,
This Wednesday (9/26) will be our first Parent Association meeting of the year! 8:45-10:15AM. Besides the free coffee and tea- Here’s what’s on the agenda, feel free to scroll on through, Cliff Notes are in BOLD:
• SLT Elections- 2 Parent Seats open.
Elections for the 2 open parent seats on the SLT will be held at the beginning of the meeting. Nominations are accepted by email or at the meeting. Each candidate will be asked to very briefly introduce themselves. If you have questions want to nominate yourself or are interested in being on the SLT but can’t make the PA meeting/ election please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The School Leadership Team is a DOE mandated committee of school staff and parents that meets once a month to discuss school policies and budgeting.

• Review and approval of our annual budget
At the start of each school year we must vote to approve our running budget. We will be reviewing this year’s PA fundraising goals and expenses.
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!
You will be hearing more from us in the next weeks, but we would like to get a few important dates and ideas afloat.

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:
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.
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:
