Parents and Guardians,
To mark the United Nation’s International Children’s Day this year, Six Seconds, the largest global organization dedicated to the development of emotional intelligence, will be facilitating a half-day workshop at EVCS aimed at raising awareness of children’s rights and our responsibilities in supporting them. This workshop will take place from 9am-12:30pm on Saturday, December 17th in our auditorium.
This workshop will be divided into three parts:
What are children’s rights, and how being more aware of our own Thoughts, Feelings and Actions can help support our children
What makes for healthy relationships, and how does our “Brain Style” help or hinder them
3. Being Aware, Intentional and Purposeful
What are children’s rights and our responsibilities, and how can we use the 3-step process of being Aware, Intentional and Purposeful to fulfill these rights
This all-morning workshop is for up to 40 adults and will help us explore our own emotional intelligence so that we can help better support our children. Much like you’re instructed to do with an oxygen mask on an airplane – we need to take care of ourselves before we can take care of those around us. We hope you can join us for this workshop – Free child care will be provided!
Use THIS FORM to sign up by Friday, December 9th. We are capping this workshop at 40 people, so please sign up today!
If you have any questions, please contact Liz

Dear EVCS Families,
Have you been wondering what in the world a “tape diagram” is, and why your child is using it to solve math problems? And what ever happened to the trusty old standard US algorithm? I hope you will join us on Saturday morning from 10 to 12 for our Parent Math Workshop! We will be exploring the progression of skills and concepts taught throughout the elementary school grades, as well as the models and strategies your children are learning to use to represent their thinking in math. It should be a fun and interesting morning, and childcare will be provided.
If you plan to come, please RSVP here.
To provide a little context and fuel for the discussion, here is a recent article from the New York Times on the Politics of Math Education and another one from last year that I found resonant, entitled Why Do Americans Stink at Math?.
Looking forward to learning together!
