finger-279x300.jpg We want YOU!

PCO Meeting
Monday, September 29, 2014
Upper School Café

All parents/guardians of Lower School and Upper School students are automatically members of the PCO, and attending meetings is a great way to learn more about the school. After all, your kids spend 35 hours a week here.

We typically start PCO meetings with a featured speaker from the ECS community, followed by a PCO business meeting to discuss events, fundraisers, mini-grants, and more. This time, we will start a half-hour early (6:00pm instead of the regular time of 6:30pm) so everyone can have a chance to see the Upper School renovations with ECS administration. On hand will be CEO Jon McCann, Upper School Principal Justin Aglio, Upper School Assistant Principal Mandy Cribbs, and Food Services Director Kelsey Weisgerber.

Pizza will be provided by the PCO, and free childcare is available for school-aged children from 6:30 to 8:30pm. We're looking forward to seeing you on Monday, September 29 at 6:00 PM in the newly renovated Upper School Café!

Support the PCO

| No TrackBacks
Each year part of the ECS PCO's mission is to raise funds to support the school and its students. Funds raised by the PCO pay for important projects such as mini-grant requests initiated by teachers, playground equipment for all grade levels, monthly staff appreciation gestures including a week-long staff appreciation event in May, social events throughout the year, schoolwide assemblies, supplies for class parties and events, school directories and calendars for each family, and more.

If you are able to, please consider making a donation to support the work of the PCO! If every family gives an average gift of $20, we will be able to meet half of our fundraising goal with donations and we'll be able to reduce the number of fundraisers the PCO traditionally conducts throughout the school year.

To make a tax-deductible gift, please deliver a check to the school office made out to ECS PCO or donate online here. Thank you!
