Get Involved!

Parent involvement is crucial to the success of our program and solidifies open communication with staff and Administration. This foundationally enhances a positive school experience for your children. Parents receive consistent daily communication from classroom educators including a daily picture, moods and observations, and an individualized comment about each child. We also encourage parent involvement in a variety of ways including:

  • Volunteering in your child’s classroom
  • Going on class field trips
  • Attending parent activities and ECP/Shalom Austin-sponsored workshops
  • Participating in parent/educator conferences
  • Attending weekly and special Tot Shabbat programs on Fridays
  • Donating reusable materials (e.g. material scraps, toilet paper roll tubes, yarn) for art projects or gently used toys and books that your child may have outgrown
  • Providing feedback to help make the ECP the best environment for you and your child!

Grandparents Club

Leadership volunteering Hands

The ECP has an active Grandparent/Grandfriend Club that provides diverse opportunities to participate with their grandchildren and amongst themselves as well as share their unique talents and gifts with the school.

The highlighted event is the annual Grandparents’ Day Breakfast which boasts participation from Bubbies and Zaydees, aunts and uncles, and neighborhood “pseudo” grandparents from near and far.
