Get Involved at Episcopal Collegiate!
Episcopal Collegiate School is fortunate to have a thriving parents association that makes our community strong. All parents and guardians are automatically members of the Parents' Auxiliary and are encouraged to attend a monthly meeting and get involved. Involvement in the Parents' Auxiliary is a great way to engage in the life and spirit of our Episcopal Collegiate Community.
The Parents' Auxiliary is looking forward to a fun-filled and productive 2016-2017 school year. By hosting events such as the Family Watermelon Supper, Wildcat Round-Up Lower School Fall Festival, Homecoming Tailgate Party, and Little Rock Marathon Support Station, our organization contributes to the sense of community on campus.
An important and unique service that the Parents' Auxiliary sponsors is the program of monthly Parent Roundtable meetings – one for lower school parents and one for parents of middle/upper school-aged children. Mediated by Ken Clark, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, the roundtables are an opportunity for parents to exchange ideas on a wide range of parenting topics. We strongly encourage you to attend at least one meeting to share in this invaluable network of seasoned parents.
Be on the lookout for future announcements of events and services hosted by the Parents' Auxiliary. We are continually working on ways to enhance campus life for students, parents, and faculty.
Episcopal parents, faculty, and friends turned out in huge numbers on Saturday night, Feb. 10, for the Heart of Gold Auction. An incredible 600 tickets were sold. With overwhelming support from the school community, the event raised a whopping $350,000!
"Countless hours by so many people were spent planning, organizing, soliciting, and preparing for each aspect of the auction," said Head of School David Perkinson in a Feb. 13 message to the community. "The entire process represents a broad and deep love of Episcopal across every constituency. Few schools enjoy that kind of experience with their auctions.
"Thanks to everyone for your love and support for Episcopal. You are making a difference in the life of the school and in the experiences of our students," he said.
Congratulations to tuition raffle winners Scott and Melissa Duncan, parents of 3rd Grader Emma!
