PCO Meetings – NEW this year

Posted: August 31, 2015

Monthly PCO Business Meetings – NEW FORMAT/SCHEDULE for 2015-16
We will have a new format for monthly PCO meetings this year. The PCO’s Executive committee will conduct a business meeting on the second Thursday of each month, open to all parents, guardians, and staff. These meetings will focus on finances, fundraising, event planning, committee updates, and more. We will not offer childcare or food at these meetings.

PCO Public Forums – NEW for 2015-16
When current events or concerns warrant, the PCO Executive Committee will hold public forums featuring a speaker(s) from the school community; approximately two or three forums will be held each year. Free childcare will be provided for school-aged children, and dinner will be served to make it easier to fit the meeting into a busy day. Watch the PCO section of the Wednesday Word for forum announcements or email parents@ecspco.org for more info or to suggest a topic.

Each year part of the ECS PCO’s mission is to raise funds to support the school and its students. Funds raised by the PCO pay for important projects such as mini-grant requests, monthly staff appreciation gestures including a week-long staff appreciation event in May, social events throughout the year, supplies for class parties and events, garden supplies for the outdoor learning space, school directories and calendars for each family, and more.

If you are able to, please consider making a donation to support the work of the PCO! If every family gives an average gift of $20, we will be able to meet half of our fundraising goal with donations and we’ll be able to reduce the number of fundraisers the PCO traditionally conducts throughout the school year.

If you are able to help, whether your gift is $2, $20 or $200, it makes a difference and is much appreciated! To make a tax-deductible gift, please deliver a check to the school office made out to ECS PCO or donate online. Thank you and we are excited for a great school year!
