2017 Fair Trade Marketplace

fairtrade_square_facebookEach year, the PCO brings the Fair Trade Marketplace to ECS. This holiday gift shop will be open in the ECS Upper School Cafe on December 9-10. You will find a selection of fair trade, sustainable, affordable gifts for socially and environmentally responsible holiday gift giving. We invite children to the Chickadee’s Nest where they can shop independently for gifts under $10. All items are made by artisans around the world who are paid fairly for their work. Enjoy some soup and baked goods after you shop. Open to the public! Sign up to volunteer.

Scholastic Book Fair at ECS

We’re bringing a Scholastic Book Fair to ECS! Stop by for a book and a treat in the main foyer of the Lower School. There will be a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Though the fair is hosted at the lower School, we will have titles for older readers available as well.

ECS Lower School
Monday, November 6, 5:30-7:30 pm
Tuesday, November 7, 8:30 am-7 pm

Our Online Fair is available from November 1-14
If you are unable to attend the Fair in person, we invite you to visit our online Book Fair at http://www.scholastic.com/bf/environmentalcharterschool.

Volunteers Needed
Because all of us would like to attend parent teacher conferences, we have to have enough volunteer coverage so we can slip out as needed for these meetings. Kids are welcome to help. Grades 6-8 can work without an adult, under grade 6 requires parental supervision. Sign up to volunteer!

ECS T-Shirts and Sweatshirts for Sale
