In response to parent and teacher feedback, the PCO Steering Committee has made some changes to the PCO structure and operations:
The PCO’s Summer 2019 newsletter includes our summer event schedule, Kennywood Day, fundraising, and more!

Please join other ECS parents and guardians for pizza and a discussion with Dr. Mandy Cribbs on Thursday, March 14. We will meet at 6:30 at the Upper School Cafe. Dr. Cribbs will be sharing information about how the school uses data (from PSSAs and other sources) to inform instruction. She will be available to take questions on other topics as well. Childcare for school-aged children will be provided. email@example.com
All ECS parents, please complete our short survey (less than 5 minutes) to help us understand what we’re doing well and where we can improve. The expansion provides us with an opportunity to restructure and redouble our efforts, and we want your feedback about how we can best serve the ECS community moving forward. All responses are anonymous, and ONE LUCKY WINNER will be randomly selected to win 4 FRONT ROW SEATS to the Spring Concert of their choosing (or some awesome ECS swag if you don’t have kids in a concert). Winner will be selected Tuesday, March 12. Click here now!
Hey ECS community, join us for the next PCO meeting on Thursday, February 7th from 6:30-8 in the Upper School Cafe to discuss and plan for the future of the PCO.

We need your help and ideas to make this next phase of life for the PCO bigger and better than ever! Please join us and bring your ideas.

The PCO Steering Committee is looking for additional members. The PCO is organized and operated by a Steering Committee. We are looking for up to seven new members to help shape the rest of this school year and beyond… to work together to plan and organize meetings, brainstorm ideas, spear-head fundraising efforts, plan fun events, and much more. The Steering Committee currently has the following openings available. We’d love to welcome some new faces to this friendly team.
Chair – lead the group in meetings, help plan meetings and be the point person for communication between the PCO and the school.
Members at Large – participate in activities of the Steering Committee including meetings, participate in PCO events, vote on important PCO decisions, and share thoughts and ideas.
This is an open, friendly, and welcoming team and we hope you will consider joining us as we continue our work in making ECS a great place for our kids, staff, and families.
