PTO shows its Teacher Appreciation

Although the actual event is still a month away, in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week this year PTO wanted to provide Fall River’s dedicated teachers and staff with a more lasting token of our gratitude.  FRES parent (and hard-working PTO secretary) Gina Tajchman took on the monumental task of  making over of the teachers’ lounge into a more functional and restorative space.  The staff is excited about their new “mountain retreat.”

  

Pictures needed!

Preparation of our annual school yearbook is in full swing. The PTO relies on parents and staff to supply us with the candid pictures that the kids love to see. The more pictures we have available, the better the final product. Field trips, special events, and everyday activities are all needed. Higher resolution files are preferred to make editing easier. Submissions can be sent to our hardworking yearbook editor Betsy Van Dyke at  yearbook@fallriverpto.org  Thank you in advance for your help!

Volunteer for Fox Trot

Fall River’s annual fundraiser is kicking off on September 8th with the Fox Trot race held two weeks later (September 23rd) and prize events the following week (September 30th).

We need a lot of help to make this fun event possible. Please sign up to volunteer! You can help count laps and hand out water during the race or help with any of our fun prize events.

Spirit Gear

This year we’re taking orders for Fall River shirts and hoodies throughout the year. These shirts with Fall River’s logo are perfect for Spirit Day every Friday at our school. Just send in an order whenever you’re ready, and we’ll add your items to our next order from our spirit gear vendor.

This is not a fundraiser. We resell spirit gear at exactly the prices we pay so your cost is as low as we can get it.

Carnival!

Our annual Fall River Carnival is Friday, May 1st from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.

This great event features games, food, prizes, bounce castles, face painting, and more — about 40 different booths to visit that are fun for kids from preschool right up to fifth grade.

We need your help to make this possible. Please volunteer to help at a Carnival booth for one hour. You’ll take tickets, help children play the game, and give out prizes.

Adults, high school students, and middle school students (at any school) may volunteer.

Conference Meals

It’s time for parent/teacher conferences again, which means we’re asking Fall River families to help provide dinner for our hard-working teachers.

If you can make a dish at home, pickup an ingredient at the grocery store, or bring something from your favorite restaurant, you can help.

Signup to bring something on Wednesday, February 4; Tuesday, February 10; or Thursday, February 12.
