Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO)
The Early Childhood Center PTO is a vibrant and welcoming parent-teacher organization that brings together families, staff and community.
All ECC families are welcome to join the PTO, come to its meetings and help with its sponsored events.
At the start of each school year the ECC sends home information about the PTO and how to join. Membership costs $6 per family. To join, fill out a membership form and return it to school along with your dues.
About the ECC PTO
Our PTO is focused on creating events and fundraisers that provide ECC families, students and staff the opportunity to socialize and work together. The PTO partners with the ECC to provide valuable materials and programs for all of our students.
Some of the events we sponsor include:
► Popcorn Fundraiser
► Fall Scholastic Book Fair
► Fall Assembly
► Winter Concert Gift Basket Raffle
► Class Photos with Frosty the Snowman
► Spring Assembly
Our 2016 Popcorn Fundraiser took place in October and raised more than $3,700.
The PTO's 2016 Fall Scholastic Book Fair was held in November, and ECC families purchased more than $3,000 worth of books for their children. Through the Book Fair, ECC teachers also received credits to choose additional reading materials for their classrooms.
PTO fundraisers help pay for the Fall and Spring Assemblies, the class photos with Frosty the Snowman, and the cost of buses for our spring field trips. The assemblies feature experienced children's performers such as puppeteer Dave Herzog and magician Kevin Kelly.
Becoming a PTO Member
As mentioned above, joining is easy. Just fill out a membership form and return it to school along with your dues, which are only $6 per family.
A link to the 2017-18 membership form is also available in the column on the left side of this page.
Reasons to Join
Still not sure whether you should join the ECC PTO? Here are just a few reasons why it makes sense to become a member:
► To be a role model and show your child the value you place on education
► To share your unique talents and ideas in the service of the ECC community
► To stay informed about and engaged with the education of your children
In addition to joining the PTO, we encourage ECC parents to take on leadership roles within the organization. We thank all PTO volunteers who give their time to organize events for our school!
