ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
Thank you to all the wonderful teachers that made both back to school nights a huge success! Also, a special thanks to Angela Weberwho provided dinner on behalf of the PTA for all the Fallsmead teachers and staff that stayed each evening!

NEW PLAYGROUND!

 
A big THANK YOU to all of the Fallsmead Families that participated in last years successful Boosterthon fundraiser! Due to the incredible success of the event, the PTA was able to purchase additional playground equipment for the school with the funds raised! Our beautiful new equipment was installed this week and is ready for use! 

RESERVE YOUR DIRECTORY!
Did you know that only Fallsmead PTA members receive a copy of the Fallsmead School Directory? The directory is packed with valuable information such as class rosters and student contact info... everything you need to set up those all-important play dates for your kids! Click here to sign up for the PTA online or to download the form.

LAST CALL FOR ROOM PARENTS!!

There are still a few classrooms in need of a room parent! This is a role that can be shared between several parents and it is a great way to get involved. If you are interested in volunteering as a room parent please sign-up here. If you would like further information, please contact Sandra Zinselmeier, Room Parent Coordinator. 


SHOP AND EARN!
Fallsmead has launched an easy new fundraiser with AmazonSmile! AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know, however 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases will go back to Fallsmead Elementary School.

Visit AmazonSmile and select Fallsmead Elementary School Rockville MD as your charity and start shopping!

GROCERY REWARDS
Fallsmead also has other grocery reward programs set up with Giant, Safeway, Target, and Harris Teeter. For more information, please visit the PTA website.
