End of Year Financial Review Committee
The PTSA is looking for 3 volunteers to participate in the PTSA Year End Financial Review.  It will require just a few hours of your time, most likely in July. You do not have to be a board member, but do have to be a member of the PTSA. It's a great way to help out without making a huge time commitment. For more information, please contactdeborah@evergreenptsa.org

Looking for a way to get involved?
How about Chairing a PTSA Committee?
Attention all parents who are looking for a way to get involved and make a difference... The EMS PTSA has numerous openings for Committee Chair positions for the upcoming 2018-19 school year. All these openings do NOT require you to attend monthly PTSA Board Meetings (although you are always welcomed to attend). And most of these positions allow you to work at home at your convenience.

8th Grade Baby Photo Submission and Deadlines

You've got the cutest little Baby Face!

We are looking for baby and current photos of this year's 8th grade students to be included in a slide show at the 8th Grade Celebration.  For the Celebration Slide Show, parents may submit one or two photos.  The two photos should consist of one baby photo (usually between the ages of 6 months and 5 years old), and one more recent photo of your child that showcases some sort of talent or activity they enjoy.

Photos should be in electronic form and emailed to Evergreen ASB at EMSASB@lwsd.org.

If 2 photos are submitted, they will be shown side by side (split screen).  If you can place the photos side by side in one file or document, before sending, please do so. Label each photo file with your child’s first and last name. All photos must look uniform, so no borders, filter effects, and don’t add words or font please.  If you cannot place your two photos side by side in one file, please rename each photo with your child's full name and number them 1 & 2.  We will do our best to place them side by side for you.

The deadline for submission of any photos is Friday, May 25th. This deadline is firm because there are 393 eighth grade students who each submit up to 2 photos.  We need to have time to put all the photos into the slideshow.  If everyone waits until May 25th to submit, we have up to 786 photos to manipulate in a short period of time.  We really need parents to submit their photos NOW.  We greatly appreciate you taking this into consideration and getting pictures submitted early if possible, but at the very least, by May 25th.  Any photos received after May 25th will NOT be entered into the slide show.

 (*The 8th Grade Parent Celebration will take place on Wednesday, June 11th. More info about this and other 8th grade events below.)

8th GRADE CELEBRATION *New date and time! *   

8th Grade Parents: Mark Your Calendars for the 8th Grade Celebration

Monday, June 11th, 7:00pm-8:15pm!

 Due to some scheduling conflicts, we have had to move the 8th Grade Parent Celebration to Monday, June 11th.  Please note, this is different from the original date and time sent out a couple weeks ago.

 The 8th Grade Parent Celebration, on June 11th, will include the 8th grade program and a slideshow/video presentation. *Remember to send in your 1 or 2 photos by May 25th! (See info about baby photo submission above in the Eagle Express!)  The 8th Grade Celebration is for immediate family members only (parents and siblings).  We apologize, but with almost 400 eighth graders this year, we do not have room for extended family (grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins) in the gym. This celebration is not a formal event. It will be a casual event, but school dress code still applies. The program is scheduled to run from 7:00-7:45PM with refreshments to follow from 7:45-8:15PM. 

 If you have questions about the 8th Grade Celebration or Fun Day, email Trish Miller, Activities Coordinator at trimiller@lwsd.org or emsasb@lwsd.org.
