A MESSAGE FROM THE PTO PRESIDENT

Welcome Falmouth Falcon families!


We are excited for all the 2020-2021 school year has in store for us! Although we are not able to have in-person events due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are working on some fun activities that will be hosted through the Falmouth Elementary School PTO Facebook page! We encourage you to join us at www.facebook.com/groups/fespto and be sure to answer all questions when requesting to join.


Did you know that unlike many schools, every parent is a member of the FES PTO? There are no dues and all are welcome! Everything we do benefits the students and staff at FES.


We really enjoy the amazing ideas and support that comes from our FES families. We have many openings and opportunities for parent involvement through our PTO. If you are interested in learning more, please join us for one of our virtual PTO meetings, held the first Tuesday of each month. You can learn more about these meetings on our website or on our Facebook group page.


I look forward to sharing the spirit and excitement of a new school year with all of you!

Jamie Gardner

MONTHLY PTO MEETING

Tuesday, Sep. 1st, 6:30pm

This is an online event.

Join us! The FES PTO meets the first Tuesday evening of every month to discuss ways in which we can best support our faculty, the student population, and Falmouth Families - all of whom are each experiencing such a unique school year. We want to be sure your ideas are heard! Stay tuned in the FES PTO Facebook Group for the link to attend. We look forward to seeing you there - virtually, of course!

"FREE" WAYS TO DONATE TO THE PTO

Because times are tough for so many families throughout our community the PTO will not be hosting fundraising events, but there are two simple ways in which you can still donate to FES PTO without spending an extra penny:


WE NEED YOU!

Are you able to lend your talents to the PTO this school year? We are looking to fill several positions, most notably Website Support, Volunteer Coordinator, and Family Programs, though any special skills or interests you bring to the group will be appreciated.
