EDS Parent Guild

Every parent is a member of the EDS Parent Guild. Annual dues are automatically paid through each child’s Registration Fees. Funds are used for a variety of activities initiated by the EDS Parent Guild Executive Board as well as any improvements the guild wishes to purchase for the school and our students.

EDS Parent Guild hosts events to create fellowship among students, families, and parishioners. The participation and success of the various fundraisers and projects are due to the tremendous effort, time and committment of our EDS families. This is the difference we make as a strong Parent Guild at EDS. The parent guild organization is governed by the EDS Parent Guild Executive Board and Steering Committee which is staffed with EDS parents that represent each division and grade. The steering committee is responsible for coordinating all Parent Guild fundraisers, managing a budget, overseeing volunteers and making financial decisions that benefit our school. They work closely with the school liaison and the Head of School to ensure all their efforts support the school’s mission. The proceeds from dues and fundraisers allow the parent guild to support the school financially through annual gifts.

Parent Guild Fundraisers:

  • Back to School Dance

  • Spirit Store
  • Used Uniform Sale

Gifts Parent Guild has provided for the school:

  • iPads

  • Lower School Playground Equipment

Our funding also provides for senior teacher stipends, in-service lunches, faculty/staff Christmas and appreciation lunches, 8th grade graduation gifts, summer research class and half of the school directory.
