Something for Everyone!
Held annually, the art show highlights student art work done throughout the year. The Art Show committee helps plan, organize, and gathers materials for our annual art show. We need volunteers to help organize student art samples, set up/break down art work for the art show. We also need help seeking out members in the community that can share their cultural background and customs with our students. You don't have to be an artist or creative person to help with our annual art show! This is a great way to start volunteering in a small way! For more information, contact Kate Cerullo.
Book lover or not, this is a fun and easy volunteer opportunity! The Book Fair runs for one week in the spring, and there are volunteer shifts available in the morning or afternoon. You can even time your shift to correspond to when your student(s) come into the fair! Two people "work" at a time, so you're never alone if you have questions, and the Book Fair Chair will either be on campus, or available by phone. Help students create their wish lists, and check students out using the tablet payment system provided by the company. You even get to use one of the fun scanners (and who doesn't love scanning items, or is it just me?) For more information, contact Lisa Fore.

Cultural Arts Program
PAWS Cultural Arts Program is a committee dedicated to the enlightenment and enrichment of our ECS students. Funds raised by PAWS through family membership and fundraising drives allow this committee to bring the arts to life for our student body. Music, storytelling, dancing and plays are just a few of the programs we have been able to offer.
In addition to live in-school performances, PAWS Cultural Arts program also offers hands on opportunities for our students. The Artist led, student created sculpture in front of the Elementary building is an excellent example. We are currently working to commission a second artist led, student created sculpture to erect outside the middle school building. We are grateful to our ECS families for their continued financial support. It is this generosity that allows PAWS to offer students a well rounded and exceptional educational experience for our students. For more information, contact Allison Blatz.
