Parents are encouraged to be actively involved in the school by becoming involved in special projects, instructional activities, school functions, and study trips. Volunteers are always needed and are a vital part of the total school program. They assist in classrooms, in special subject and resource rooms, and in educational support areas. There is an active American Red Cross (ARC) Volunteer Program in the school. Contact the school office if you would like to volunteer at the school.
Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
The ECK PTO is a volunteer organization that consists of parents and teachers who are interested in the welfare of all children at ECK. Our main objective is to foster a closer relationship between the home and school, so that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of our children. We actively support the Continuous School Improvement (CSI), School Advisory Committee (SAC), School-Home Community Partnership (SHCP), Literacy Nights, Partners in Education (PIE), extracurricular activities, school store, T-shirt sales, and before and after school activities. Please join us in making ECK a wonderful experience for our children.
The PTO can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
School Advisory Council (SAC)
Each DoDEA School has a School Advisory Committee (SAC) composed of parents and teachers. They serve as a link between the community and the school. The agenda for each meeting with exact times and dates of the meetings will be publicized through the Parent Newsletter. This committee is advisory in nature and not a policy making board. It advises and assists in examining matters such as school policy, staffing needs, educational programs, educational resources, facilities and maintenance, and other related areas of education for children. The SAC is a means through which parents may present their concerns. Parents are urged to become active participants and to attend the SAC meetings. Parents who cannot attend, but wish to submit an item(s) for consideration, may contact any School Advisory Committee member.
E.C. Killin’s SAC meetings are held at 15:15 on the fourth Thursday of every month.
