2020 Staff Holiday Gift Collection

Dear ECS families,

The PCO Staff Appreciation Committee is excited about giving winter holiday gifts to the teachers and staff of ECS once again. The plan is to have one comprehensive collection. You won’t be asked to make another financial contribution through your room parent. The total amount collected will be divided among homebase teachers, specialists, E-Day and general staff in the form of gift cards. Consider this your one stop shop if you are interested in participating in a seasonal gift giving staff appreciation gesture.

Contributions can be made via the PCO’s PayPal account or by check. We’re sorry, but cash cannot be accepted. Checks should be made payable to “ECS PCO” and sent to Jill Farringdon, 5539 Pocusset Street, Pittsburgh PA 15217. If you send a check, you will receive an email confirmation that the check has been received.


The deadline for making contributions either via PayPal or by check is Tuesday, December 8th. A suggested donation is $15-$20 per student attending ECS (remember, this is to be split among approximately 175 staff members), but we are so very grateful for any amount you can comfortably give; no amount is too little (or too much!)!

Many thanks,
PCO Staff Appreciation Committee
