The ECDS-PTO is a separate 5013C organization, set up by our families to support ECDS students and programs. The School has authorized the ECDS-PTO to operate on-campus as the School’s official parent-teacher organization in accordance with School policies and procedures. As an important part of our school community, the ECDS-PTO welcomes parents and staff as members of its organization and coordinates parent support for PTO, school and community projects throughout the year. PTO volunteers support student, school, PTO and Community projects, activities and events. Their collaborative work expands ECDS’s ability to involve and serve its students and their families, provide programs and serve the larger community.
The ECDS-PTO Board meets every Tuesday morning at 9:00 a.m. and holds a general membership meeting on the last Tuesday of each school-year month. A School liaison to the PTO works closely with the PTO Board of Directors, and attends weekly PTO Board Meetings, Monthly General Membership Meetings and scheduled Annual Meetings to represent the School. We encourage our families to visit the ECDS-PTO website (link below) and attend general meetings to explore the various opportunities available to participate according to individual availability, ability and/or interest.
