This week, you should have received an email from the PTA with information about how to verify your information for the upcoming Fallsmead Elementary School Directory.

All information must be verified by September 30th.

WOOTTON CLUSTER NIGHT All Wootton Cluster families are invited to Cluster Night on Friday, October 2nd. We also would like to announce a very special commemoration to honor the memory of the late Dr. Michael Doran. Kick-off is at 6:30 pm and students arriving by 6:00 pm may run out on the field with the Patriots. A door prize is available for the first 200 cluster students and each student will receive a special treat (while supplies last). Come join the excitement - football, cheerleaders, poms, marching band, concessions and more! You can download more info here.

In addition, this year we are "stuffing a truck" with a MANNA food drive. We would like to stuff a truck full of groceries for the needy. Check out the needed items and plan to bring them with you as you cheer on the Patriots as they play the Clarksburg
