Fallsmead PTA Newsletter 5/5

Post date: May 18, 2016 2:43:23 AM


We have filled almost all of the PTA Board positions for the 2016 - 2017 school year, and have just two remaining positions:

  • VP Promotions
  • Secretary

Thank you to all of the parents that have volunteered their time to run the PTA next year. Please contact Jennifer Derman if you are interested in serving in one of the two positions mentioned above.


We would like to highlight and thank Nurgi Gelic and her employer for utilizing their matching gift and donation program. Due to this program, her employer donated $850 towards our Wish List items!! If you have a workplace matching gift program, please see if it's available to you. It brings in needed funds to support our teachers and classrooms! Please see the new items up in the Wish List here.


Thank you to all who supported Fallsmead Elementary by purchasing items during our spring Farmraiser! All orders will be available for pickup this Fri, May 6th from 3 pm - 6 pm and Sat, May 7th from 9 am - 11 am at the school. Anyone who is unable to pick up during these times can contact Tim Achey to make alternate arrangements.


The 10th Annual Give and Go Clinic being conducted by Coach Maggie Dyer and the Wootton Girls Basketball Team is scheduled for May 17th from 6:30 to 8:00 pm at WHS in the main gym. This is a great community wide event for girls in kindergarten to 8th grade. There is no cost for the clinic - instead please bring canned food goods to donate to Manna. See the attached flyer for more information.


Spring Fair is coming up on May 20th!!! We've got it all: dunk tanks, soccer , DJ, food trucks, dessert, games, face painting, seed planting and more! It's $10 per Fallsmead kid for unlimited games, bouncing, photos, and more! Bring cash for wristbands and food.

To help make this event super successful, we need volunteers. Please sign up here if you can manage a slot at any point in the evening - the Spring Fair committee would appreciate it!
