Hello EVCS Families,

This Thursday 6/21, instead of our final PA General meeting, is our Annual Staff Appreciation Party! Please come help celebrate and thank our teachers, administration and support staff to salute their hard work and the fantastic year we’ve had at EVCS.

The Party will be held at The Roost, 222 Avenue B, 5:30-7:30pm in the back room. It’s a cash bar for beer and wine, we’ll have snacks (we, the PA, will be buying the staff’s well earned libations).

Childcare for current EVCS students is available, RSVP Here

Come toast our teachers and ourselves for a heck-of-a-year at EVCS!

See you there,

EVCS PA Exec. Board

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.

Let’s get more details below…

Teachers “Walk In” for Paid Family Leave

Dear Parents and EVCS Community,

At drop off tomorrow morning, Friday June 8th, 8:05-8:30 am, teachers are gathering to rally outside of the school, as a “walk in” demonstration to educate about and demand family leave from New York State. Please feel free to join them to show your solidarity and support the fight for family leave as this is something that affects all families and together we can make change for the better. As public workers, teachers do not currently receive the same sets of protections as non-public workers, including the rights to paid family leave.

Here are a few points that organizers and our teachers have highlighted:
* Paid family leave does not exist for NYC public school teachers and other unionized public workers in NYS.
* The new NYS law affording paid family leave to NYS residents does not apply to unionized public workers.
* Teachers are required to exhaust their bank of sick leave days in order to get paid for caring for a newborn or newly adopted child, or to care for a sick relative.
* No sick days? Teachers must borrow against their sick days to take a so-called maternity leave. They are required to take a leave of 6 weeks after the birth of a child, but cannot take more than 12 weeks leave without losing health insurance for their family.

Please consider standing with teachers, ask questions, and find out how you can support the fight for paid family leave. The event is an this is an action organized by the social justice arm of the UFT, called the MORE caucus (standing for Movement of Rank and file Educators). Our children’s teachers provide vital services to our children and our communities, let’s support them in their work to gain the right of paid family leave.

In solidarity,
