This year the carnival is Friday, May 17th, from 4:30-7:30.    In order to make this fun event happen, we need lots of volunteers to work at the games, help with set up or clean up, and sell tickets or food.  Volunteers can sign up in one hour increments and can be adults or students from any middle school or high school.   Fall River students from safety patrol or student council may also volunteer.

To sign up to bring food to the Late Start Teacher breakfast that week, please check under the “Volunteer Opportunities” section on the right.

Parent/Teacher Conference Meals

Parent-teacher conferences are quickly approaching, which mean long 12-hour days for the hard-working teachers and staff at Fall River.  The PTO’s goal is to make the experience more bearable by providing dinner. There is a different menu on tap for each night.  Each menu includes contributions of various levels of complexity from entrées and desserts to drinks, condiments and sides.
  • Homemade, store-bought, or carry-out are all welcome.
  • Please label any homemade items with the ingredients as some of our teachers have specific dietary restrictions.
  • Crock pot liners to use in your 3.5-6 quart round or oval slow cookers are available at the front office; stop by during the school day to pick one up.
  • We have serving utensils, please keep yours at home to avoid misplacing them with our collection.

Drinks – Please bring on 2/5: http://fallriverpto.org/volunteer/2019/drinks/ FULL
