SUBMIT PHOTOS FOR THE YEARBOOK

Take photos of your kids at any Fallsmead Elementary event and then upload the photos directly from your smart phone into the Fallsmead Yearbook software! Just download the ReplayIt App and choose Fallsmead as your school. It's easy, streamlined, and will ensure that your child is featured in candid photos within the yearbook. The app will prompt you to "tag" the individuals pictured, so correct names and grades will be attributed to your photos as well. Any questions? Want to help out with Yearbook? Email yearbook@fallsmeadpta.org.


SIGN UP TO BE A RECESS VOLUNTEER

Volunteers are needed to help with school recess. Help our teachers support our kids as they play outside and create new friendships. As a recess volunteer, you will actively supervise children during recess and support staff on duty. Offer 35 minutes of your time to get to know the children of Fallsmead and keep them safe. Once you’ve participated in the PTA Volunteer Training, you are good to go! Click here to sign up to volunteer. Please note we ask that you leave your cell phones in your cars before you come to volunteer. Additionally, support is most needed during outdoor recess, so check in with the office before you come on rainy days. Questions? Contact recess@fallsmeadpta.org.
