Thank you to all parents, teachers, and staff (over 150 of you!) who attended the 2/17/2021 General PCO Meeting. It was wonderful to hear from many voices, hear important perspectives, and see many faces in one place.

Moderator Help Needed! – ECS Transportation Connections Facebook group

Last school year, the PCO set up the private ECS Transportation Connections Facebook group, a forum where caregivers and staff can share and discuss school-related transportation information and questions.

We need to transition the group to some parent volunteers willing to moderate it, and keep tabs on transportation issues. The time commitment is minimal, especially if there are a few moderators to check in once in a while, and approve new members as needed. As we transition to in-person learning, we anticipate an increased need for and interest in transportation communication.

If you can step up to help, please send a message via the PCO Facebook page, or e-mail newsletter@ecspco.org. You can find the private group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ecstransportation. New members must answer a few quick questions before being approved.

Calling all Artists! Submit your yearbook cover design!

Students are invited to submit a yearbook cover design by Sunday, Feb.28. It must be 8.5 x 11″ in portrait orientation and contain the text “ECS 2020-2021”. Take a clear picture of your design, or save it as a .pdf, and send it to yearbook@ecspco.org. No scanner or phone, you can also mail it to ECS PCO, 5539 Pocusset St, Pittsburgh, PA 15217.

Please hold onto the original. If we choose their design, we will need it to do a high quality scan. We want their artwork in the best possible presentation.
