This Week’s Theme- Happy Halloween

It’s hard not to get excited the week of Halloween. The kid in us wants to play dress-up and binge on sweet treats as much as our students do. Sure, we’ll pay for it for a week afterward, but admit it, the fun and anticipation make it all worth it. This week we hope you will share lots of pictures demonstrating how the spirit of Halloween finds its way into your classroom and schools. Show us the costumes, the activities, the decorations, the tricks and the treats. We don’t want to miss one second of this part of our #EVSCstory. Mwah-ha-ha-ha-haaaaaaa!

NOTE: You absolutely DO NOT have to match the theme to share a picture with us. Feel free to share any photo that helps us tell the #EVSCstory at ANY time.

Week 11 Photo Challenge

This photo was created using Canva. They have an amazing library of graphics for a very reasonable price. You can also create in Canva for free. The text was added using PicMonkey, another great photo tool. If you would like to know more about these tools or about photo editing, contact the ICATS.

How to Share Your Photos

There are four ways that you can share the photos that you take with us:

  1. You can share via Instagram – Simply post your Instagram photos using the hashtag #EVSCstory. Feel free to add other hashtags as well to indicate the theme (e.g. #Halloween), or add more information to the caption to help tell the story.
  2. You can share via Twitter – Post your photos to Twitter using the hashtag #EVSCstory. Again, we invite you to add other hashtags, including some of our EVSC hashtags like #evscchat. You can also include our Twitter handle (@evscicats) to ensure we see your pictures as soon as you post.
  3. You can share via Facebook – Visit our ICATS Facebook page, click the Message button in the upper-right corner, and in the text of the message give us your name, school, and the theme for the week. Be sure to attach the photo by clicking the Add Files button. While you are there, we’d love it if you liked our page :) OR, simply share your image on your own Facebook feed, and include the #EVSCstory hashtag.
  4. You can share via email – If social media isn’t your thing, feel free to share your photos directly with us through email. Just attach your photos to an email and send them to [email protected]
