Please consider helping your child's teacher by volunteering to be a Classroom Parent! Classroom Parents help out in a number of ways, including

updating parents on important school/class events and planning classroom parties. It is a wonderful way to meet the kids and parents in your child's class. Contact Sandra Zinselmeier with your name, email address, child's name, grade, and teacher if you are interested. Thank you for volunteering, it makes a difference!


Save the date for our annual Donuts with Dad on Friday, September 16th at 8am. Dads (or

another special adult), are welcome to join their kids on the blacktop before school for donuts, coffee, and juice. Start your day with delicious donuts and put a smile on your child's face! Any moms who are willing to help out at this great event would be greatly appreciated. Please contact Doyle Currey at vp4@fallsmeadpta.org or 240-643-9502 if you can help!


Mark your calendars for theBack to School Bash on Friday, September 23rd from 5:30-7:30pm. There will be moonbounces, a petting zoo, food trucks, a DJ and dancing, and lots of family fun!

We need both adult and SSL volunteers for the Back to School Bash. Click here to be an adult volunteer or click here to sign up SSL volunteers.


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.

Second, all volunteers must complete volunteer training provided by the PTA. The next PTA training session will be held on September 14th from 6:30-6:45pm in the Staff Lounge. This training is valid for two years. Contactvolunteer@fallsmeadpta.org with questions.


Did you know that only Fallsmead PTA members receive a copy of the Fallsmead School Directory(which will be coming out some time in October)? The directory is packed with valuable information such as class rosters and student contact info. . .everything you need to set up those all-important play dates for your kids!
