Parents Association

Students benefit when their parents take a consistent interest and an active role in their education. We therefore encourage and enjoy steady parental engagement in many aspects of school life. There are many different ways for you to get involved.

1. Each new parent is automatically enrolled in our Parent Association. The Association meets regularly, and everyone is encouraged to attend whenever possible. This is a great way to be an active participant in your child’s education and to connect with the other ECDS families.

2. ECDS parents are instrumental in our many annual school events. They help to organize everything from our initial Welcome Back Picnic to our Halloween bash (“the Monster Mash”), our Winterfest, our Art Show, our major drama production in May, and all the way through to our closing ceremonies and Graduation night.

3. Each classroom has a Room Parent who helps to arrange field trips and parties. These and other parents regularly drive children to their field trips, and help supervise the outings.

4. All of our fundraisers are entirely organized and produced by parent volunteers. Regular fundraising drives include the Wrapping Paper Sale in September and the major Annual Spring Auction.

The Spring Auction is a most important event at ECDS, and everyone helps make it a success.  From the Auction Chair-person to those who help move the chairs, we all participate, have fun, and work hard to make the event a resounding success.

Community Connections

Awareness of, and involvement in, the local community are critical pieces of a child’s social education. We participate in community life, and we encourage our children to be active community members in Easton and the surrounding towns. By making sure our students regularly experience the satisfaction of helping others, we help them to develop their own sense of responsibility and integrity.

Our most anticipated charity event is our annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. During November, our students are encouraged to help the less fortunate by choosing and bringing in Thanksgiving dinner foods for our local charities.  Our older students also participate by helping with the delivery of the food, which allows them to witness directly how their actions can benefit others.

Students at ECDS also benefit from our bucolic setting aside Easton’s Town center. Our younger students regularly visit the Town’s Senior Citizen Center, which is located next door. They visit for storytelling, for game events, and to show off their Halloween costumes. As an added benefit, they have an opportunity to sing songs for an appreciative and attentive audience.

We are just across the street from the Town’s lovely library, and we often take mini-Field Trips there in order to participate in its community activities and its many child-centered offerings.
