Fallsmead ES PTA News & Notes

CALLING ALL ROOM PARENTS!

We are looking for one or two room parents for each class in each grade. These grade-level room parents will work together to help problem solve, promote virtual events, and create community during this unusual school year. We are also looking for a treasurer for each grade to collect and manage funds for holiday parties and other special, community-building events. Please email your teacher and cc roomparent@fallsmeadpta.org. Thanks!
