2021-2022 PCO Volunteers

PCO Committee Sign Ups 2021-2022

There are a few committees that run year round but others are very limited in time commitment. We have tried to specify the expected time frame for each and give you a sense of what the time and task expectations are (see the link to the PCO website for details). Committee chairs are the point people for the PCO. The PCO will work with chairs to work on things like budget, communications, expectations and then the chairs will be responsible for the successful running of their committee.

We will be recruiting volunteers as needed for events, lost and found, staff appreciation and other requests throughout the year using channels such as the PCO Pulse newsletter, ECS PCO website, and the ECS PCO Facebook page. Keep an eye out in those communication streams as something new may catch your eye!

Please review the information on volunteer clearances http://ecspco.org/volunteer/clearances/

Please check off committee interests you have for the upcoming school year. For more through descriptions, read http://ecspco.org/volunteer/pco-committees/ (Sign Up Genius has a character limit.)

You will be contacted by the committee chairs (however, please follow up with [email protected] if you don't hear from someone- mistakes happen!).

Room parents- Look for a separate sign up in the first weeks of school. 

Do you have an idea for an event or fundraiser? Check that box and someone will be in contact with you!
