Annual PSO Fundraiser from September 25 – October 19
We officially kicked off the PSO annual fundraiser on Curriculum Night – 09/25!
Money raised will go to support the counseling department, buy library books, support after school programs, parent engagement and much more. 100% of money raised will be used at EWHS to enhance student education and support.
Donations can be made using the PayPal button on the right of this page or by printing the fundraising form and returning it to your student’s English teacher or the EW main office. A pizza party will be awarded to the class with the highest participation and a dessert party to the highest donating class (who makes the most money). All donations are greatly appreciated – Thank you in advance for your support!
How does the EWHS Parent Staff Organization support our staff and students?
- We provide grants to teachers and student groups for things not covered in the school budget – from materials to experiences.
- The PSO, with Princeton Review, offers Practice ACT and SAT tests for students in the fall and spring.
- We host Teacher Appreciation Luncheons four times during the school year to thank our great staff.
- We host social opportunities for parent and EWHS administration/staff to engage in dialogue – Back to School Social at Brigid’s Bottleshop, Principal’s Coffee (First Friday of every month) and Parent University
