parent teacher organization
The Effort PTO is made up of dedicated volunteers that love giving back to the ECSP community. Some of our favorite events include the annual staff Christmas Appreciation breakfast, Carnation deliveries on Valentine’s Day, providing homemade soup/salad luncheons and complete take-home dinners for teachers and staff, spoiling the teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week, and having tons of fun at fundraisers including Chipotle night, Belk Charity Day and American Legion Bingo volunteering. Our service projects have supported local fire and rescue workers, nursing home residents, animal rescues, and most recently a crayon recycling initiative that distributes crayons to art programs in children’s hospitals.
In the fall of 2016, we held our first annual Tricky Tray Raffle and Live Auction to support a new fundraising adventure – a Playground Campaign. This event was a huge success and after two years, we raised over $40K for the playground. We are thrilled that the playground is now complete with beautiful new play structures installed!
At the heart of everything we do is the desire to serve our children and our school in making this community a wonderful place of which to be a part.
Our meetings are held on the 1st Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm, in the Sanctuary Fellowship Room.
