School Council

​​
Every school has a school council—a group focused on helping all students succeed.

School councils are groups of parents, community representatives, teaching and non-teaching employees, students and the school principal. Through the active participation of parents, school councils work to improve student achievement and enhance the accountability of the education system to parents.

A LETTER FROM PARENT COUNCIL

 

Hey hey  ECES families! Parent Council is excited for a new year to do some more good for the school! Our goal is to benefit as much of the population as possible. This year our main focus is on literacy & numeracy again, as well as many other areas like field trips, outdoor fun, etc.  We have come up with a smaller fundraising plan this year, and our wonderful Principals have made a “Year at a Glance” fundraising calendar for all of us so we can prepare for the fundraisers we’d like to participate in. Pizza lunches have already started, and Cookie Dough is coming soon... stay tuned!  All are welcome to attend our meetings in the library, the first Monday of most months (second Monday if there was a holiday on the first). Bonnie & Meghan keep the school website updated, and I try to keep everyone up to date in our “ECES Parent Group” on Facebook. If you have constructive feedback, concerns, or comments, we’re always available to listen and try to help. This is going to be a great year!
