17 Sep EVA Update for 9-17-21
Good evening EVA family!
Happy Friday! We are over half-way through September and here are a few things that you should know.
Last week through an error in scheduling, the Big Red Bus came through on Friday, the 10th, instead of today. I apologize for that calendar error, but we were able to still have some students, faculty, and people from the neighborhood participate and give blood. We are thankful for those that did, and we appreciate those of you who do regularly participate. The next blood drive here at EVA will be on Friday, December 3rd, and anyone over the age of 16 may be able to donate. Please plan to participate in that blood drive and help save lives here in our community.
We have many students looking great in their uniforms these days, but occasionally a uniform shirt is left here at the school. Because so many students are wearing similar shirts, we recommend that you mark your student’s shirts with their initials on one of the tags inside of the garment. When we have that extra information, we are often able to reconnect the students with their items.
If you have a student in grades 3rd through 5th, the elementary Praise Team will begin meeting again this Thursday, September 23rd, with Ms. Ehly. Praise Team practice will go from 2:50 to 3:15 every other Thursday. If your student loves to sing, dance, or just has a little bit of extra energy at the end of the day, please consider having them be a part of this fun group.
Finally, the first quarter ends on October 4th which is two weeks from this Monday. Please check the Parent/Student Portal for the latest information on how your student is doing in their classes. If you need access to the Portal, please contact the school office at 904-786-1411 during the school day and they will be happy to give you that information. With a couple of weeks left, you can still reach out to teachers if you have questions or would like to know how your student’s grades can improve. We encourage all our students to finish this first quarter well by completing their assignments, attending help classes, and studying for upcoming quizzes and tests. Our school chaplain has been speaking about the importance of hard work this month, and we know that a strong work ethic will not only help with these first-quarter grades, but also set our students up for more success and greater opportunities in the future.
That is all for this week. We continue to have a full schedule of volleyball, football, and cross country this fall. If you have not yet gotten out to a game or match, we would love to see you. Have a wonderful weekend, and we will see you Monday!
