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!
Parent Council Chair

Why join us on school council?
Involvement in school council is a meaningful, hands-on way to have a direct, positive impact on your child’s educational experience. Research shows that when parents are involved in their child’s education, the level of student achievement increases.
