Thank You!

Thank You! On behalf of the PCO, thank you to all of our volunteers! Every volunteer is greatly appreciated… whether you were a room parent or helped in the classroom, planned or helped at an event, or even “just” sent things in for your teachers or staff appreciation. You gave your time and support to make ECS a better place for our teachers, staff, and students. We will have some big shoes to fill next year due to moves and graduation. The PCO will be hosting a volunteer fair at the start of the year and you can learn about where you can plug in your time and talent. Thank you! We are truly lucky to have wonderful, engaged families at ECS! For a sneak peek at the upcoming volunteer opportunities, see our 2018-2019 sign-up form.

Go ECS Hawks!


ECS has a new sports logo! The ECS Hawks logo design was sponsored by the PCO and will be visible at next year’s ECS athletic events. T-shirts with this logo will be available to purchase during the next t-shirt sale in the fall (you can place a pre-order later in the summer). Go Hawks!

Thanks Volunteers!

The PCO thanks the volunteers, led by Erika Bruce, that planned and worked Staff Appreciation Week! Thank you to Legume, Point Brugge and Brassero Grill for donating food to the luncheons. The staff members were also able to enjoy massages by Emily Escalante, LMT, and salon services by Corinne (ECS mom) and Theresa from Philip Pelusi. The PCO is grateful to all the families that were involved with making it a great week!

Staff Appreciation Week – May 7-11

Hello ECS families! The chance to show our thanks to the wonderful and hard-working teachers and staff at ECS is fast approaching! Staff Appreciation week is May 7-11, and we will have lots of ways to get involved, either through volunteering your time, your delicious homemade food (Lower School signup | Upper School signup), or monetary donations (click donate button below). Please help us make this a week to remember! staffappreciationweek@ecspco.org

We are no longer able to accept Staff Appreciation Week donations. Thank you to all of our generous donors!

May 11 – Scavenger Hunt

The ECS PCO will host a fun, free, family-friendly Scavenger Hunt on Friday May 11 at 12:30, after the half-day. We’ll gather at the Falls Ravine Pavilion (where Falls Ravine Trail and Tranquil Trail meet, close to the Lower Frick parking lot). Teams will hunt the trails for clues and a chance to win a prize. We’ll start gathering and registering teams at 12:30, and the hunt will begin at 1:00. At 2:00, we’ll meet back at the pavilion for snacks and the raffle. Hope to see you there! Contact scavengerhunt@ecspco.org with any questions.
