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!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The Harvest Festival lifted spirits today.

We collected nearly 2000 cans this year, it may be a record! Thank you to all of our parent volunteers, to Georga for leading us in song, and to Terry and the EVCS Drumline who helped set the tempo and led everyone to the soup kitchen in time!

A shout out to brothers Neil (5th Grade) and Ivan (2nd Grade) for their amazing help yesterday moving donations to the lobby! The beautiful signs on stage were made by Sehra, Michael (PreK) and Max’s (3rd Grade) mom. Sullivan (1st Grade) shared visual art works packed up as a gifts for the soup kitchen to share with members and guests who visit. Our Core Values were in full gear today.

Thank you to everyone for participating this year with your donations and taking action that benefits our community – that is what it’s all about.
