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!

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.

Fall River Carnival 2013

We’re eagerly getting ready for this year’s annual Fall River Carnival on Friday, May 17th from 4:30 to 7:30 pm.

Our Carnival has been a beloved annual event for more than 10 years now. It features age-appropriate games and activities — everything from a basketball toss for skilled players to a lollipop tree where our youngest visitors win at least a lollipop every time. With prizes, an ice cream truck, spray-on tattoos, and other fun attractions inside and outside Fall River, everyone always has a great time.

But we cannot do it without your help!

We’re asking volunteers from each grade to staff three or four activities for one hour at a time. Volunteers take tickets, run the game (don’t worry, they’re easy) and hand out prizes to winners.

Give us one hour of your time and we can make this year’s Carnival a wonderful experience for every family!

To signup, please visit:

You’ll see which activities we’ve assigned to each grade level, but please feel free to signup for any activity!

Conference Meals – January 22-24th

Our Fall River Families really know how to put on a feast for our hard working teachers & staff!  Please click on the Volunteer Opportunities to sign up.  Then bring the items you’re donating to the table by the front office when you come to pick up your kids from school on January 22nd, 23rd, or 24th.  If you make something homemade, please label it – especially if you’re bringing one of the gluten or dairy free items.  If you could include a recipe card with it, that would be even better as teachers often request your wonderful recipes.  Label your dishes with your name, and they will be returned to a table by the front office each night.  We need help with set up and clean up before and after the meals, so please sign up for that as well. Thank you in advance for your generosity!!

 

2012 Fox Trot

It’s time to kick off our annual fundraiser!

On September 28th, the students of Fall River Elementary will run laps around Stephen Day Park (next to our school) competing with their own personal goals. They ask for your sponsorship in the race.

This is our only cash fundraiser of the year (so the only time we’ll ask for your money to support Fall River for the next 12 months). Let’s show how much we believe in our students by beating our fundraising goal of $30,000!

Pledge Now!

You can learn more about Fox Trot, signup to volunteer for the event, and of course, pledge to sponsor your favorite Fall River Fox in this great event.
