Our EC School Store is ready for shoppers!
The school store will be open every Wednesday from now till Christmas! (Except 11/27) The store will carry a wide variety of items suitable for all ages, including, pens, pencils, erasers, key chains, posters, and more! As well as a few spirit items, our Wildcat headbands and Custom OJR Pura Vida bracelets.
Grades K-3 and 4-6 will rotate as follows:
- Grades K-3 can shop 11/13, 12/4, 12/18, 1/8, 1/22

1, 2, 3, 4….. We Declare A Penny War!
December 9th - December 20th
All Grade Competition!
Collect pennies and bills of any amount in your grade's bucket. All pennies and bills will add to your grade's total score. Place any silver coins in another grade's bucket and these will get subtracted from their total!
1 penny = 1 point
1 nickel = -5 points
1 dime = -10 points
1 quarter = -25 points
1 dollar = 100 points
5 dollars = 500 points
And so on...
Highest scoring grade gets a Holiday Hot Chocolate and Cookie Party in January!
Proceeds will help EC PTA sponsor spring family social events.
Currently we have 13 parents signed up for Shoparoo and are close to getting $50 of FREE money! Imagine what we could raise if we got 50 parents signed up! With certain events needing only $200-300, this could fund one of our events without ever spending any money.
Hassle-Free Fundraising! Turn your shopping receipts into donations for your school. It's that simple. Download the Shoparoo App and select East Coventry PTA as your school of choice. Every time you shop, login to the app and take a photo of your receipt. Each receipt counts as points or raffle drawings (based on your spending). Points are accumulated and turned into cash for the PTA!
EC PTA Amazon WishList!
(and while you're at it - you can add ECPTA as your designated charity on Smile!)
ECPTA provides all our own paper for any communications that go out to our students. We're looking to build up a stock of colored papers for all our flyers! Any brand - any color will do! (as long as it's printer paper!)
