First Popcorn Friday of the Year is This Friday, Sept. 22

The PTA provides popcorn to students on designated Popcorn Fridays throughout the school year. This Friday is our first one of the year!

·      We need volunteers to help pop. Get to know other parents while helping out. Whether you can pop one hour or all day, come lend a hand between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.  

·      Please contact Nancy Sticksel at nancy.sticksel@yahoo.com or "signups" on My School Anywhere to sign up.  

 

In Need of Cafeteria Assistance

Our students need help in the cafeteria with opening packages and helping to control noise levels.

·      If you could volunteer as little as an hour per week or an hour per month, it would be greatly appreciated by our students and teachers.  

·      If you can volunteer the entire lunch period that would be very helpful, but the greatest need is from 10:15 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

·      Please sign up on My School Anywhere

Reminder: Background Check Required for All Volunteers

Don’t forget that all school volunteers must have a background check at the start of every school year. Get it taken care of now so you are ready to volunteer!

·      If you had a background check last year, the process is easier because you are already in the FWISD system.
