The EDS Association

The EDS Association meets four times a year and all parents are welcome and encouraged to attend meetings and special events (all EDS parents are members of the Association). Through its fundraisers, the EDS Association funds the school “wish list” which is developed by faculty and department heads. This is an invaluable way for our parent body to help the school attain items that weren’t planned for in the school’s budget but enhance the EDS experience. In addition to wish list items, the EDS Association donates a portion of their funds to the EDS Endowment and curriculum support.
