Recess Volunteers Needed
Want to help promote positive social (or we can say prosocial) engagement at recess at Fallsmead? We need volunteers for our recess monitor volunteer program, which will be rebooted starting this October. Recess is a very important part of the school day, when students engage in exercise and play-based social interaction. As a recess monitor, you can help to make recess at Fallsmead a fun, safe experience for students. Please contact Marybeth Henry Gill for more information at email@example.com.
Yearbook Art Contest
Would you like to have your artwork featured in the 2023-2024 Fallsmead yearboook? We are inviting all Fallsmead Elementary School students to enter their artwork into our Art Contest. The theme is "Rooted in Excellence" and the submissions will be featured inside of the yearbook, with one piece displayed on the front cover! To learn more and participate please download and print this submission form.
