We are looking for boys and girls in grades K-5 for the upcoming school year (but you can join now and do fun activities through the summer). Girls can join in separate dens. Questions? Contact Erin Markowitz at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be sure to save a rocket for you!

SPRING FAIR THIS SUNDAY, MAY 19TH
The Spring Fair is coming up THIS Sunday, May 19th from 5:30-8:00 p.m. Parent and student volunteers are still needed to be sure the Fair runs smoothly. Parents are especially needed to help sell wristbands at the two entrances (from 5:30 - 7:30), sell our fun Fallsmead spirit wear at tables inside and to help breakdown the event from 8:30 - 9:00 PM. Parents, please click here if you can sign up to help!
We also need middle school and high school students to help manage our fun table games and we would love to have a few people dress up as our Fallsmead Falcon Mascot to entertain the kids. Students, please click here to sign up. The cost for the event is $10 per kid (adults, kids under 5, and incoming Fallsmead Kindergarteners are free). Be sure to bring money for spirit wear and food trucks and get ready to have a great time! Questions? Email email@example.com.
