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 email@example.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. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
