We are passing on some very sad news about two EVCS families that have suffered a great tragedy. A recent fire has left both families displaced. One family has lost their home and everything in it while the others are still waiting to find out what is salvageable. Many details are still being sorted out around this disorientating event, but we are thankful that everyone is safe.
We are reaching out to you for any temporary housing options. If you or anyone of you know who has an empty apt or a space that might be available now or in the near future, please contact James at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212 982 0682 x2102. Thank you. We are waiting to hear what the families need before setting up any collections. Many thanks again for your help.
A few reminders as we all run into the winter break…

Dear EVCS Families
The application period is now open through January 15, 2016.
If you have a child born in 2011 who will be starting kindergarten in September 2016 please apply online before January 15, 2016.
To apply online go to this link.
All applications received by the January 15 deadline are treated the same—the application process is not first-come, first-served.
All kindergarten applications are handled directly by the Department of Education. Placement offers will be distributed by the DOE in March, 2016, and followed by in-person registration at East Village Community School in early April.
EVCS Pre-K Parents Please Note:
You must complete a kindergarten application for your child in order to be considered in the first round of placements at East Village Community School.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call or email myself or Bradley, or stop by the main office.
All the best,
December is a jam packed month, full of fun and excitement.
Mark your calendars!
