ESCO Parent Group

Welcome to a new school year! 

As a parent at Eastside, you are a member of ESCO (Eastside School Community Organization).  You may be more familiar with the term PTO or PTA, but in Sun Prairie it is an SCO.

ESCO promotes the education and enhances the welfare of the students at Eastside Elementary School through communication and cooperation between the staff and the families of the students.  ESCO sponsors assistance to teachers in classroom settings, raises funds for supplemental educational materials and experiences, supports school and family social interaction, and provides a non-biased forum for sharing information on issues that impact the children.

The volunteer Board and Committee Chairs are: 

Michelle Culley

Linda Pergola
Vice President  

Heather Miller

Joanna Paykel




ESCO meets once a month at 7:00 pm at Eastside Elementary

  • ESCO has an Executive Board that is elected and committee chairpersons that are appointed. 
  • All parents of Eastside students and all Eastside staff are members of ESCO. 
  • All members of ESCO are volunteers.  


ESCO meets once a month at 7:00 pm at Eastside Elementary

Meetings allow ESCO members to collaborate efforts for programs, fundraising, and general Eastside information.  Meetings generally last an hour with the first portion of the meeting used for education and general Eastside information.  A list of meeting dates and tentative speakers are attached.  The last portion of the meeting is for the  business of ESCO.  Come for one or come for both; snacks are served in the middle!



You can get involved by volunteering your time and your talents.  You can attend a meeting.  You can sign-up to volunteer at an event. You can help raise funds for programming by clipping Box Tops.  You can participate in our school-wide fundraisers.  We would love to help you plan a school dance, a science fun night, a movie night, or a game night.  You can e-mail any of the Executive Board or Committee Chairs at any time with questions or concerns.
