Who We Are



ECS is proud of its robust Parent Community Organization (PCO). The mission of the ECS PCO is: to represent the views and concerns of the parents to the school administration and staff; to serve the greater Pittsburgh community and to maintain a positive presence therein by being a model and advocate of sound environmental practice; to engage in innovative and effective fundraising and development activities; and to enhance the educational experience and personal growth of students, teachers and families.

  • Check out the PCO website for up to date information and events.
    • Aug. 13 – K-5 Playground Date at Frick Park – students, families, and friends welcome!
    • Aug. 17 – New Family Welcome – new and veteran families welcome!
    • Every year the PCO collects student and parent contact information to include in the school directory. This is a great resource for birthday parties, play dates, carpools, and connecting with the school community. Please fill out this quick online form by Friday, September 8th to be added to the 2017-18 directory. If you have any questions, please email directory@ecspco.org.
    • ECS t-shirts and sweatshirts with the new ECS logo. All orders placed by July 28, 2017 will be available for pick-up at the Meet & Greet on August 15. All orders placed by September 1, 2017 will be delivered to classrooms by September 20. After September, a limited number of sizes and colors will be stocked by the PCO and available for purchase. Order now. The PCO would like to ensure that every student at ECS has the opportunity to have an ECS t-shirt. If you can not afford the price of a t-shirt, you may request one free t-shirt per student.
    • The PCO’s Uniform Re-Use Market will be held at the Lower School only (all sizes available in one location, all ECS families welcome to shop). Gently used uniform shirts, pants, shorts, skirts and jumpers are all $2 each.
