Please Take the School Survey This Year • Our hope is 100% Participation!

Green Envelope

Help us reach 100% participation!

YOUR TEACHER(S) WILL GIVE YOU AN ENVELOPE AT YOUR CONFERENCE!

LOOK FOR YOUR CODE IN THE GREEN ENVELOPE

You are invited to fill out the paper form outside your child’s classroom or stop by the office where you can submit your survey online using the code on your personal letter. Surveys can also be completed at home.

Completed Paper Surveys can be dropped in the green box
located in the main office Room 205 or mailed in any USPS box.

It is our hope that every family will take the time to fill out this survey to help inform decisions made at EVCS! We value your feedback!

What is the NYC School Survey?
Each year, all parents and teachers at EVCS take the NYC School Survey. It is designed to collect important information about our ability to support student success. We need your help by completing the survey! At conferences you will be given a green envelope that contains a code. You may fill out the paper form or go online. We will have computers available in the main office room 205 during conference week. Please make an effort to complete the survey online or by dropping it in the box labeled “Parent Survey”.

How is the Survey information used?
We use feedback from the survey to reflect and make improvements to schools and programs. The results are also used to help measure school quality by the DOE.

Thank you for taking the survey seriously.

All best wishes,

Dear Parents and Guardians,

It was great to see so many of you out on Sunday supporting the D1 Family Bands! The Earth School took home the trophy this year – but you can be sure that EVCS will be back in it to win it in 2020!

The Reading Olympics is in full swing this month – another friendly reminder to keep on reading, logging and getting sponsors! A great way to get sponsors is to email friends, or ask neighbors and relatives. Here is a link you can share: Online Sponsor Support Link If you need another paper form to log on to, please visit the EVCS bulletin board in the lobby for another copy and to see other helpful information.

And if you have a child born in 2015, don’t forget to apply for PreK by March 15th! Follow these important directions to indicate you’re already an EVCS family too to receive priority!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

On Wednesday, the Parent Association kicked off the planning for our ANNUAL SPRING GALA (Saturday, April 6th)! There are many ways to get involved! Please let the committee know you are interested in helping out by reaching out to events@evcsnyc.org There will be a meet up every Friday in the lunch room after drop off from now until the event. The push for soliciting silent auction items is on! And you may have some questions like, ‘I’ve never been to the Gala before, what kind of items are you looking for and how do I begin?’ You can find answers on the Gala FAQ page.

Once again, we have no phone service, so you cannot call the school. If we need to reach someone we can call out. You can email us with anything urgent and we will get it right away: James at jamespc@evcs.me or Sharon at SBlumenkranz@schools.nyc.gov.
We will let you know as soon as we are wired again.

And student Metrocards for Spring are here!
Current cards expire on January 31st.
If your child currently has a Metrocard, please contact Sharon at sblumenkranz@schools.nyc.gov and it will be sent home in your child’s backpack, or you may come into the office. If you have any additional questions, please contact Sharon. Thank you!
