parent teacher organization

The Effort PTO is made up of dedicated volunteers from school staff and student families that love giving back to the ECSP community.  Our goal as a PTO is to provide our teachers and their students with fun events, improved facilities and the appreciation they deserve!  The Effort PTO is in need of as many volunteers as possible so please consider joining and getting involved.  To get on our email distribution list and to stay up to date on our latest activities, please send an email to:

Some of our favorite events include our monthly luncheons for Effort staff, Movie Night on the church lawn, Valentine’s Day candy deliveries, and spoiling the teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week.

Our service projects serve as a great learning opportunity for our children and include events such as our Halloween candy collection to send to deployed troops across the world in partnership with Blue Star Families of Central Virginia.  We also partner with Hope is Everything to collect stuffed animals, crayons, coloring books and other supplies to be added to duffel bags delivered to local foster children.

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 5:30pm.  We also stream the meetings on Zoom for those unable to attend in person.
