VOLUNTEER TRAINING SESSIONS
Anyone who wants to volunteer in a classroom at Fallsmead this year will need to complete two types of volunteer training prior to volunteering. First, online Child Abuse and Neglect training must be completed. The online training can be accessed by clicking here. Once you take the online training, you will receive an email. Please bring this email with you to the front office on your first volunteer day. This training is valid for two years.
Second, all volunteers must complete volunteer training provided by the PTA. There are two upcoming trainings, September 30th before the Back to School Bash (5:15-5:30pm) and October 2nd (from 6:00-6:15 pm). The trainings will be held in the Staff Lounge. Questions? Please contact email@example.com.
JOIN THE PTA AND VERIFY YOUR DIRECTORY INFORMATION!
The directory will be printed and distributed before you know it and we want to make sure that your information appears exactly how you would like it. To make this happen, please log in to A to Z Connect and verify your information. If you are new to A to Z Connect, please create an account. If you have logged in before, it is as simple as following the verification wizard to double check your information. You can also join the PTA at the same time! Remember, all families who join the PTA receive one school directory for free! Directories will be delivered via your child's backpack by early November. Questions? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
