We will be having a Back to School Pancake Drive Thru Breakfast on September 19th from 9-11am! We are in need of up to 10 volunteers to assist in setting up, cooking in the kitchen, running food out to cars, collecting money and cleaning up. Please contact Christy Farr and Natty Jones through email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details or to sign up!
SCRIP: This is a great time to try electronic cards using your SCRIP account and Presto Pay. Our SCRIP coordinator, Becky Tritschler is more than happy to walk you through the process of setting up your accounts. Most plastic cards are available with advanced notice to the SCRIP team. If you are in need of plastic cards, please email email@example.com and we will try to meet your gift card needs if at all possible.
Substitute Teachers Needed!
We are looking for cheerful and positive parents and community members who would be available 7:30am - 2:45pm to substitute for teachers as needed throughout the year. Approved applicants who pass a criminal background check can use this for volunteer hours or to receive payment. If you are interested please contact the Mrs. Szoch at firstname.lastname@example.org for a substitute application and information about what days you would be available.

Parent Volunteer Needed to Hang County Fair Artwork
Thank you so much to those who have already signed up to be recess monitors during the first quarter. We still need to fill open time slots. If you are available, please consider signing up. Your child will love to have you here!! Access the sign-up here.
Did you know FAW parent volunteers offer a used uniform program at FAW? If you need uniforms or have uniforms to donate, we have a new format! Beginning this year, New-To-You Uniforms will be set up at school events making this program available more frequently and on a first-come-first-find basis. Pass on this blessing to others by donating your child’s used uniforms (unstained & washed, please). Donating is easy – bring uniforms with you to school events, drop off right at the New-To-You Uniform Tables or in the “Used Uniform” green bin right in the school’s vestibule. This is an amazing program FAW offers to all families at no cost. Save money, practice good stewardship, pass along blessings, prevent textile waste, the list of benefits is endless.
Does your FAW middle-school student need service hours? We would love to help your student(s) sign up to work New-To-You Uniform tables at school events. Students will sort incoming uniforms and provide parent support in filling uniform requests. It’s a great opportunity to grow social skills, serve others, provide proactive facilitation, and practice professional conversation. Please contact Sheli Laney firstname.lastname@example.org or Melanie Chadwick Chadwickmm207@yahoo.com if your child would like to volunteer for any upcoming school event in which the used uniform program will be present.
Want to do even more for the used uniform program? We desperately need large totes and a gently used portable hanging rack. Please consider donating these items to help us further organize this effort.
