Each 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.

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.

We are now accepting advertisements in the ECS School Directory. Please see our ad rates and instructions for submitting your advertisement by Sept. 15. Thank you for your support!
