EVENTS & FUNDRAISERS

  • The PTO is committed to supporting all students, teachers, and staff at Easterly Parkway through yearly initiatives including school supplies, classroom requests, field trips, visiting authors, teacher and staff appreciation, and enrichment activities like our International Fund Night (and more!). These efforts are not possible without the support from our wonderful EP families!

    Throughout the school year we raise funds through restaurant nights, Scholastic book fairs, Box Tops collections, and our yearly Fun Run. Every dollar raised stays in the school and is used to directly support our nearly 400 students, staff, and teachers all year long.

    Please see below for an overview of our yearly events and visit our calendar to view upcoming event dates.
