Dear Parents and Guardians,

The EVCS Gala-xy was spectacular. Thank you Gala Team! Another amazing effort and a record turnout! Congratulations to every winner, every parent, child, and donor! You know who you are! Thank you, teachers and staff, for being part of the NEW raffle this year and creating the life experiences and memories for our kids! We want to thank Performance Space New York for supporting EVCS and sharing an amazing room for our event. The Parent Association will be reaching out soon with more detail, stay tuned!

Gala Winners: Please be sure to reach out to the Gala Team at events@evcsnyc.org with any questions and to collect your prizes!

What could possibly top the Gala? You guessed it, the Multicultural Share!
This is one of our favorite events because it involves adults AND kids!

The Multicultural Share Event will be on Friday, May 3 this year!
The deadline to sign up for the performance part of the share is today at 5:00 p.m.! please be sure to get an online form in now if your child or family hopes to be considered for a performance spot. See details below!

We hope the cooks in our crowd will consider making something for the Multicultural Share Potluck portion of this event! Bring your favorite family dish! More information went home in backpacks this week. We will have free disposable aluminum pans available in the yard the week of the share or you can pick one up in the office anytime! Details and sign-up links are below.

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.
