Parent Teacher Fellowship
Sometimes known as PTA or PTO at other schools, our parent organization is called PTF for Parent Teacher Fellowship. PTF is designed to support our students, teachers, staff, administration, and other families within the community, and not simply as a fundraising group. It is a family led organization so that all parents can participate in supporting, encouraging, and praying for all involved at ECS. The first meeting is the most important to attend, if possible! Great information is shared about events throughout the year as well as volunteer opportunities.
How can parents get involved?
Opportunities to serve provide connecting points throughout the ECS community! Serving alongside other parents, teachers, and students creates strong partnerships between school and family. There are more than 400 volunteer opportunities from Jr. K – 12 each year, including classroom activities, uniform sales, Dog Days, Moms in Touch, school-wide events, service projects, new parent coffees, teacher appreciation weeks, field trips…and more!
Operation Christmas Child Packing Party
The Shelby Farms PTF hosted a shoe box packing party for boys ages 10-14 for Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child, Franklin Graham's ministry in which shoe boxes, filled with goodies and a gospel tract, are distributed worldwide. Each child receiving a packed shoe box hears the gospel presentation in their own language. Entire villages have been saved through this ministry!
