What is PTO?
ECS welcomes back the PTO beginning in the 2015-16 school year! PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) is ECS’s parent organization which organizes and runs the various activities and school fundraisers throughout the school year. Our primary goal is to “serve” our school, students and school leaders in making ECS a great place.
PTO aids teachers with classroom parties and school-wide activities such as School Concert Programs, Grandparents Day, Teacher In-Service Days and Appreciation Staff Breakfasts & Lunches. PTO also assists in honoring the teachers throughout the year as well as during Teacher Appreciation Week. Additionally, PTO plans and implements Rewards Parties and welcomes new students and families to ECS. The profits from some fundraisers go into the PTO’s general fund and helps with special campus needs or projects at ECS.
How Can I Get Involved?
PTO meets at the beginning of the school year and then once a quarter during the school year under the direction of the current PTO President. Everyone is invited to join the group which reviews upcoming plans and where volunteers undertake various duties. Whether you are brand new to ECS or you’re an old hand, we would love to see all of you there. If you have any questions regarding PTO, contact our school office for the PTO President’s name, phone number and e-mail address.
