BE A ROOM PARENT
Please consider helping your child's teacher by volunteering to be a Classroom Parent! Classroom Parents help out in a number of ways, including
updating parents on important school/class events and planning classroom parties. It is a wonderful way to meet the kids and parents in your child's class. To volunteer, please contact Nicole Copeland at roomparent@fallsmeadpta.org with your name, email address, child's name, grade, and teacher if you are interested. Thank you for volunteering, it makes a difference!
