PTF - Middle School

Parent Teacher Fellowship

Easing transitions and building connections

Eastside Catholic Middle School Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF) nurtures the relationship between home and school during this period of transition between elementary and high school. PTF also works to strengthen the school community by enhancing communication, encouraging family involvement and promoting parent/guardian education. Through these activities, it serves as a model of service to others. PTF’s goal is to support our teachers, parents, staff and students by fostering relationships, community involvement and leadership opportunities.

Get Involved!

PTF meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month at 9:30 a.m. in the Front Office Conference Room at EC. All EC community members are invited, encouraged and welcome to attend. Please contact PTF President Katharine Pike with any questions.

PFSA - High School

Parent Faculty Staff Association

Our mission

The Eastside Catholic Parent Faculty Student Association (PFSA) is made up of parents, teachers, administrators and students. Our mission is to build community and to support students, teachers, staff and parents of Eastside Catholic. PFSA strives to be of service to the EC community through our various programs, activities and outreach.

Who we are

Every family at Eastside Catholic High School is automatically a member of the PFSA. We have a volunteer Board of Directors and other parents who offer their time, energy and talent to help with PFSA programs, events and activities throughout the year. All EC community members are invited, encouraged and welcome to attend the monthly PFSA meetings. Meetings are held on the first Thursday of every month (September through June) at 9:30 a.m. at Eastside Catholic School.

What we do

  • Enrichment Grants - PFSA funds grants with the goal of enhancing the learning environment.
  • Parent/Student Events - PFSA plans a Mother/Son Liturgy and Brunch, a Mother/Daughter Fashion Show and Brunch, a Father/Daughter Candlelight Liturgy and Dinner and a Father/Son event.
  • Staff Appreciation - Throughout the year PFSA provides our faculty and staff with snacks, treats and lunches as an expression of gratitude for their hard work and dedication.
  • Parent Networking, Education and Social Events - PFSA plans events for parents to meet, connect and cultivate friendships.
  • Support for our Students - PFSA provides financial support to the Chaplain’s Fund, the College Counseling Department, ASB Student Leadership, various student clubs and all-school student assemblies.

How we are funded

Families have the opportunity to contribute to PFSA through the online school packet. Every year nearly 80 percent of our families generously donate to PFSA. Thank you! In addition, PFSA benefits from funds received through our Merchant Money program. You can help all year long by shopping at retailers like Bartell Drugs, Everything Party (Renton and Redmond) and Amazon (smile.amazon.com).

Get Involved!

PFSA meetings are held on the first Thursday of every month at 9:30 a.m. in the Front Office Conference Room at EC. All EC community members are invited, encouraged and welcome to attend. Please contact PFSA President Rachel Allen with any questions.

Booster Club

The Eastside Catholic Booster Club works with students, parents, administration, faculty, alumni and friends to support and encourage school spirit. The Booster Club raises funds through member donations, the sale of EC school spirit wear and concessions in the Orange Crush. Funds raised by the Booster Club are used to create and support school spirit and support the financial needs of sports, clubs and activities outside of the school’s operating budget. The Booster Club is a sub-committee of the Board of Trustees.

Promoting school spirit

Throughout each school year, Boosters work to promote school spirit and provide investments to enhance the Crusader experience, including:

  • All Families Homecoming Tailgate Event
  • Student spirit gifts and treats throughout the year
  • Homecoming Week Activities
  • Athlete of the Month Program
  • Finals Week Survival Kit
  • Support of the Hall of Fame Program
  • Sponsors the high school year-end concert

Enhancing school programming

Funds raised by the Booster Club activities have enabled several enhancements to school programming, including:

  • Support for Campus Ministries, DECA, Interact Club and the Options Program
  • Installation of the center field EC logo
  • Donation of the Crusader Mascot uniform
  • Funding partnership for the EC reader board
  • Supplying of banners in the Athletic Pavilion to identify championship individuals and teams
  • Purchase of EC team Spirit Banners
  • Contributions to Fr. Heric's Chaplain Fund
  • New picnic table outside the Commons
  • Athletic Program enhancements

All members of the Eastside Catholic community are automatically members of the Booster Club. A donation request and volunteer interest form will be sent out during the summer.

Get Involved!

The governing body of the Booster Club is the Booster Board, comprised of up to 50 members. The Board of the Booster Club meets on the second Monday of each month during the school year at 7 p.m. in the EC Athletic Board Room. If you are interested in serving on the Board of the Booster Club, please email Booster Club President Liz Cruickshank for more information.
