There are many ways you can help enrich our children’s ECS experience. With the variety of volunteers we need, there are opportunities to fit everyone’s interests and schedules. Please fill out our volunteer form or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join the PCO Steering Committee! The PCO is organized and operated by a Steering Committee. We are looking for new members to help shape this school year… to work together to plan and organize meetings, brainstorm ideas, spear-head fundraising efforts, plan fun events, and more. We’d love to welcome some new faces to this friendly team. Contact email@example.com.
The PCO is sponsoring a Box Tops Challenge in all classrooms this fall. All families are encouraged to save Box Tops now and turn them into your classroom before October 15. The classroom collecting the most Box Tops will win a prize! firstname.lastname@example.org
K-5 students are invited to bring their families to the playground at Forbes & Braddock for ECS Summer Playdates on July 15th and August 12th. The pavilion has been reserved and snacks will be available. Meet up with classmates and make new friends before school starts in August! Questions? Volunteer to help?

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.
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!
We are collecting clean, gently used uniform clothing May 29 through June 8. These donations will be offered at the PCO’s Uniform Re-use Market at a back-to-school event in August. Please bring in your outgrown clothes to the collection bins in either school building. Thank you! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The PCO is offering discounts on the remaining t-shirts, polo shirts and sweatshirts left in stock (limited sizes and colors). Order online and shirts will be delivered to your child’s classroom (PLEASE list student name and classroom on order form to receive your shirts promptly). New shirts for next year will be available to pre-order this summer. Questions? Email email@example.com.
