Wednesday’s PA Meeting Highlights- Part II

Hi Folks,

We here in the PA Exec. are worried that the parent body is not receiving enough emails from school, so we have decided to send all our emails in 2 parts!

No, No just kidding. But for some silly reason the bottom part of our last email of PA meeting highlights was lopped off, so I’m sending the missing bits here.

• All of our committees need members and several need a chairperson. Being a part of a parent committee is easy, fun and gratifying! Plus the more people who join up, the more fruitful we are.

• The new series “Coffee Talk with Bradley” was announced. This is a series of topical conversations with Principal Bradley Goodman. The first one will beOctober 18th, after drop off. More to come on this.

• The puppies for cuddling during Wednesday’s PA meeting were a big hit! Just maybe we’ll try that again at the next meeting?? Mark your calendars, our next general meeting is Oct. 26th, 5:30pm.

Really, all the Best,

The PA Exec

PA Meeting Highlights

Hello Parents of EVCS,

We had a great PA meeting yesterday! Thank you to all the parents who came. For those of you who couldn’t join us, here are a few highlights. Much more can be read in the full meeting minutes to be posted on the EVCS website:

• The Fall Ball is coming soon – Oct. 29th. This parent run carnival event needs ALL sorts of help and participation. First planning meeting is tomorrow, Friday, in the cafeteria 8:30am.

Curriculum Night is next Wednesday 9/28th 5:30 – 7:30pm. The PA is chipping in to help organize childcare at school by paras, non-teacher school and after-school staff. If you want to take advantage of childcare, you need to RSVP and register your children prior! We ask for a $5 per kid contribution. There will be pizza, activities and outdoor play (weather permitting). Pre-K and Kindergarteners will be separate from the rest of the older student body. Unfortunately,childcare is ONLY for current EVCS students. Register here.

• Don’t forget to donate to the PA Family Fund. Direct family donations are the bulk of our PA income each year. We ask for $500 per family, though any amount contributed is greatly appreciated and will help our kids! Monthly installment plan is available. The PA helps pay for so much of what makes this school the special place it is. The DOE school budget only can go so far (it falls very short) and there are cuts to this budget every year. Donations are tax deductible. Donate here.

• All our committees need members and several need a chairperson. Being a part of a parent committee is easy, fun and gratifying! Plus the more people who join up, the more fruitful we are. C’mon jump in!
