Due to the current issues with Covid-19 pandemic, our PTO meetings are scheduled virtually. We are happy and excited for teachers, parents, and guardians to join us remotely from the comfort of their own homes.  PTO meetings will be held, every other month (Dec, Feb. Apr. Jun.) unless additional meetings are deemed necessary.  A Zoom link will be made available via our new Weekly Email via our new communication platform on the week of the event. It will also be shared via our ETES Facebook page. 
 
We hope that you will join us this year!
