ÉOES Parent Council and Fundraising Society Committees

  1.  Fun Lunch Committee – This group of parents will coordinate every aspect of the Fun Lunch program.  We rely heavily on these fun lunches as a fundraiser.  This group will seek out potential lunch providers from the businesses in town, partner with local businesses for sponsorship; develop forms as well as place and count orders.  With the help of extra parents, orders will be distributed on fun lunch days.  If you have questions, concerns, ideas, or would like to help with fun lunch please contact a member of this committee.  For more information, contact oldselementaryparents@gmail.com.
  2.  Fundraising Committee – This group of parents will coordinate the fundraisers for the school year.  They will gather ideas and research them before choosing two large fundraisers paired with smaller projects as needed.  If you have fundraising ideas or would like to help with projects as they arise, please contact a member of this committee or join us at our May meeting on May 6.  For more information, contact oldselementaryparents@gmail.com.
  3. Nominating Committee – This group of parents will ensure that board roles are filled at our annual general meeting in September.  These positions include Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer.  Any parent of a student at ÉOES is welcome to run for one of these positions although the parent council bylaws state that you must be able to attend meetings if you fill a board position.  If you are interested in filling one of these positions for the 2018-2019 school years, please contact Monica Andrew at oldselementaryparents@gmail.com.
