Parenting Workshops

One of the goals of Ignite is to partner with parents so that we might offer support for helping their children be their very best. In October we started a series of parenting workshops centered around the principles found in the book Parenting with Love and Logic by Foster Cline and Jim Fay.

Ignite Teamwork by Volunteering!

Together Everyone Achieves More!

There are lots of ways to ignite learning and get involved at EES. Adults may volunteer to serve as a classroom helper, field trip chaperone, student mentor, or Watch Dog Dad.

The first step to becoming a volunteer is to complete the district mandated background check. Directions for doing that are found in the above link.

The second step to volunteering is to let the school know how you would like to help. You may do this by:

  • Calling the school office (512.281.3457)
  • Emailing your child's teacher
  • Completing the survey below & someone will contact you
