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 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 given warm blankets and socks for nursing home residents, supported local animal rescue organizations, and have shown our appreciation to local police and fire rescue.

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 is now an annual event! To date, we have raised over $25K for our playground, and we are excited that Phase I of our campaign is complete – with a beautiful new play structure installed in spring 2018.

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.
