The Explorations Parent Organization (EPO) embraces the tradition of building the EPS school community through social and fund-raising events. Through numerous volunteer efforts, the EPO provides students, teachers and families with support, a sense of community, and cultivation of fond memories. The EPO is responsible for fun, family events such as the Back to School Swim Party, Thanksgiving Potluck, Skating Parties, Book Fairs, Dances, International Potluck, Spring Fling, Annual Auction and so much more! In addition to fun family activities, the EPO also provides regular teacher appreciation luncheons, snacks for students during the annual Iowa Assessment, and provides grants for other important school projects. The EPO is funded through membership dues and various fund-raisers throughout the year. Explorations Preparatory School is grateful to the EPO members and volunteers who generously give their time and resources to enrich the lives of EPS students, teachers and families.
