A suggested donation is $15-$20 per student attending ECS (remember, this is to be split among approximately 190 staff members), but we are so very grateful for any amount you can comfortably give; no amount is too little (or too much)!

    Get your Yard Materials through Haulstr and help ECS

    We’re partnering with Haulstr, a yard materials delivery service with a cause. Schedule your delivery via Haulstr, and they donate back to ECS PCO a percentage of all items ordered. Currently, they offer mulch (3 colors), top soil, and compost.

    Order your materials here or share our link with friends and family: https://haulstr.com/ecspco/ Remember, your order generates funds for ECS PCO General Fund to help the staff and school through mini-grants, principal’s fund, helping hands, etc.

    Orders are limited, so place your order today and get materials delivered to your home this fall! You won’t be charged until mulch is delivered, and you can choose your delivery date when you order.

    Scavenger Hunt

    Join the ECS PCO for a fun, free Scavenger Hunt in Frick Park after the half day on Friday, September 24. Walk the trails, find answers to clues, and enter to win a prize!

Teams can begin their hunt by picking up a map and clue sheet at the picnic table by the Tennis Courts parking lot between 11:45-12:15 (staggered starts).
