EVCS Weekly Nov 12-16

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Next week is short but full, with no school on Monday and 11:30 dismissal on Thursday. But it’s conferences week! November Progress Reports will be given out at conferences. Please be sure to set up a meeting with your teachers if you have not done so already.

The EVCS Annual Harvest Festival is on. Please bring what you CAN! It is easier to carry a couple of cans at a time and the students get more out of it by physically bringing some of the items themselves and putting them in the collection bins near their classroom. We will continue to collect items through November 21. Thank you for your contributions and support!

Let’s take a closer look at next week and see what else is coming up…

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We had a great week at EVCS! With the temperatures shifting and dropping, it’s time to round up your warm gear and layer up. EVCS policy is to be outside unless it is precipitating – so unless it is raining or snowing, expect to be outside! We believe that children benefit from outdoor play, so please count on outdoor recess and make sure your child has appropriate cold weather clothing labeled with your child’s first and last name!!

Let’s see what’s happening next week…

Dear Parents and Guardians,

It was great to see so many of you at curriculum night! I hope that you now have a better sense of the big picture and what your kids will be doing this year.

On Monday, we will kick off the first full week of school with a traditional
School Wide Morning Meeting!

SWMM – School-wide Morning Meetings
School-wide Morning Meetings are bi-monthly gatherings
of the entire school in the auditorium. They are held 8:50-9:15 a.m.
on Monday mornings. Classes go upstairs from the yard, drop off bags & coats, and then come back down to the auditorium.
Parents and Guardians, we welcome you to join us whenever
you can for these gatherings and sit with your child.

Lets’s take a look at what’s ahead.
