Donate Your Outgrown Uniforms – June 3-13

The PCO will start collecting clean, gently used uniform clothing on June 3 through the end of the school year. Please place your donations in the collection bins in both school buildings. Contact with any questions.

Order Customized Labels for Summer Camp

Thinking ahead to summer camp? We partner with Emily Press Labels to offer customized iron-on or stick-on labels for clothing, shoes, lunchboxes, books, water bottles and more! They even have customizable medical alert labels and allergy labels. When you shop through the following link, we earn 20% commission from every sale.

Booze for Brews – April 26

What’s better than a fun night out with fellow ECS parents and caregivers? One that also helps the teachers’ biggest wish come true: more coffee! The Staff Appreciation committee is hosting a cocktail party at the Wigle Whiskey Distillery in the Strip District on Friday, April 26th from 6 to 9 pm. 10% of all drink and bottle sales will go directly towards supplementing the ECS staff’s supply of coffee to help get them through the rest of the year. And I think we can all agree, they deserve it! Light snacks will be provided (and pretzels available for purchase from Axel’s Pretzels). Plus you’ll have a chance to win a bottle of delicious Wigle’s Coffee Liquor and two tour passes. So line up a sitter–or make it a girls’/guys’ night out–and please join us for this stimulating cause. RSVPs are helpful, but not required.

2019 Plant Sale

ECS’s annual Spring Flower & Plant Sale is back in time for Mother’s Day and Spring planting!

We are also offering organic vegetable and herb seedlings from Grow Pittsburgh. The order deadline has passed. Pick-up your order May 3 at the Upper School.

Volunteers needed on May 3! Sign up here.

2018 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 1-2. 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.

Election Day BAKE SALE

The PCO has an opportunity to make some $$ on Election Day by hosting a hot food + bake sale! Hungry voters, teachers and families will be around that day to purchase. We need food donations and volunteers! We made the shifts pretty short so hopefully they won’t eat into your day too much.
Sign up now!
