East Vincent Elementary School

GREETINGS FROM MS. SEELEY

Three times per school year, I like to gather feedback formally from families to help us learn and grow. The survey includes three primary themes: communication, events and activities, and safety. Please consider sharing your thoughts via a survey: https://goo.gl/forms/uzfFIZfT76h2Dmzn1. The survey will be open through March 22.

LOTS OF FUN AND LEARNING AT EV

READ ACROSS AMERICA CELEBRATIONS 2019

Many thanks to our PTA parent volunteers and staff coordinators for inspiring our EV community to have fun and read! What a super spirit week!

CONGRATULATIONS - STEM COMPETITION

Lizzy Abate, Sarina Smith & Kenny Smith competed at the open STEM competition at the Montgomery School, in Chester Springs, representing East Vincent in the Math Bowl and Engineering Challenges. All three students earned a 2nd place finish for their team in the Math Bowl after a double tie breaker question... it was so close. In the Engineering Challenge, they used materials to create a car that would go the farthest. Excellent work!

CONGRATULATIONS - DOVER SPEEDWAY ART CONTEST

EV has three artists who were selected as finalists for the 2019 Monster Mile Youth Nation Design Challenge. Best wishes to Cecelia Trainer, Brooks Grant, and Lucius Neely!

ART GOES TO SCHOOL - MARCH 14-27


ART GOES TO SCHOOL


Dear Families,


An ART GOES TO SCHOOL volunteer will be visiting your child’s art class in the next couple of weeks. Sometime between March 14-27, your child will see, discuss and have some fun with reproductions of the famous artworks listed below. Your child may not get to see all of them, but why not ask about a favorite? You can also visit our website to view these selections so you can share together.


Our volunteers have a wonderful time in the ART GOES TO SCHOOL program. You do not need any experience to volunteer, as our program is designed to enable you to both learn and share. It’s great fun! Want to learn more? Click on the link below to see some of the venues we have explored as a group (choose the More icon and select the Learning and Sharing tab). Also on view are samples of our current Portfolio under the 2018-19 Gallery tab. Please visit http://artgoestoschoolojr.myfreesites.net/ .


If you would like more information about joining AGTS, please email Carrie at artgoestoschoolojr@yahoo.com

or call Joanne at 610-326-6357.

We completed the second third of our school year. The second trimester ended yesterday on Friday, March 8. Report cards will be available on Tuesday, March 19 in the later afternoon via Skyward.
