We Are A.R.M.Y. Strong!!
EVSC's W.H.Y. Parent Camp
“The W.H.Y Parent Camp is designed to take the veil off what we do as a district, and create an intentional opportunity to listen and learn from parents and caregivers” said Cathy Gray, associate superintendent of Family, School, and Community Partnerships. “It's a chance for caregivers to offer up their expertise as parents and help us problem solve and move the work of the district.”
The Camp will include numerous sessions where participants will be asked to share their thoughts, and ideas. Discussion topics include:
· GAIN: EVSC’s Whole Child Approach to Learning
· Homework Help
· Social Media: What Your Kids Know that You May Not
· The Health and Nutrition Connection to Learning
· This is Not the Classroom You May Remember
· Cultural Responsiveness and the School to Prison Pipeline
· College, Career and Beyond
· Special Education and Individual Student Supports
· Attendance Matters
· I Wonder…
· What are Educational Tests for, Anyway?
“Our hope is to create an ongoing dialogue between schools and parents/families to develop more unique, meaningful relationships that ultimately benefit the students of the EVSC,” said Amanda Hooper, a member of the EVSC Parent Advisory Team that worked with EVSC staff to plan the camp. “We are also excited to engage community partners in this conversation to foster ideas, understanding, and solutions to better serve our students and their families.”
The Parent Camp is free and open to anyone in the community. In addition, free childcare will be provided for students in kindergarten through fifth grade.

How is your child doing in classes?
Remember to check out your students schedule for the second semester. Check RDS for the new teacher and class information.
Report cards go out this Friday but you can always check RDS for the most up to date grade information as well as past report cards.
If you have questions or concerns about grades you can contact Mrs. Bender Carrie.Bender@evsc.k12.in.us or Administration to set up meetings.
Study Cafe and Retakes
If your child needs additional support with any subject, they can stay after for tutoring. In order to schedule after school tutoring, students can sign up with Mr. Walls in Room 26A or parents can email Mr. Walls at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are trying to keep the classes small, so students can get the help they need. If students do not sign up for the sessions or schedule an assessment with their teacher, they will not be able to stay. Please let us know if you have questions or concerns regarding help for your child.
PBIS Points and Base Exchange
Again this year, students will be receiving points for doing the right things. Students can use the points to purchase items like school supplies, spirit wear, ear buds, tablets, bikes, personal hygiene items and other gifts in the PBIS Base Exchange store located in the Media Center. The Base Exchange will be open starting Monday, August 21st in the Media Center during recess periods. If you are interested in donating new or gently used items for our Base Exchange, please bring those items to the main office. We will be happy to write up a receipt for tax deductions for any items donated. Thank you in advance for helping keep this open for our students!
