It's the holiday season and the Staff Appreciation Committee is asking for volunteers to make or buy cookies and breads for the staff at Fallsmead to show our appreciation for all they do!

On the morning of Monday December 21st (before 9 am), we will be collecting cookies and breads for distribution to the staff. All cookies and breads are welcome but please label ingredients in the case of allergies. The staff will be given containers to make a take home package of treats. Please contact Angela Weber with any questions.


Thank you to all of the families that supported our first Farmraiser! All of the great produce is set to be deliveredthis Friday and Saturday. We are still in need of 3 - 4 volunteers to assist with distribution, particularly on Saturday. If you are able to help, please sign up here.

Remember you can pick up your Farmraiser in the Staff Lounge order on Friday, December 18th from 3 pm - 6:30 pm or Saturday, December 19th from 8 am - 10 am.


Calling all scientists! The Fallsmead Science Fair will once again take place early next year on Friday, February 19th. Winter break is a great time to get started with planning and experiments!

The Fallsmead Girl Scouts Troops want to extend a BIG THANK YOU to all the families who donated books to the Book Drive. It brought in about 400 wonderful books for the Fallsmead teachers and about 100 books that were donated to the Perry Street Prep school in DC. Teachers and students are thrilled with the new books now available to them! Please start saving your books for next year's Book Drive!
