Pennies For Plants
Thanks to the generosity of the students, parents, and staff we raised $2950.50 for the Elementary Learning Garden!
This spring Falmouth Elementary School staff and volunteers will begin the construction of a new hands-on learning garden. Students and parents have supported this community wide learning and recreational opportunity by donating their pennies and other coins to our school. The donations will be used to purchase seeds, soil, lumber and other garden materials.
DISMISSAL REMINDER-Beginning Monday, February 25, 2013, we will not be dismissing students from the main office after 2:15 unless it is for an appointment or in an extreme emergency, which will be noted for our records. We need to be concerned for the safety of all of our students, and feel that an early dismissal simply for convenience is not acceptable. Not only is it disruptive to our security and our dismissal procedures, but it is also disconcerting to children who repeatedly miss the closure of the school day.
If you are picking up a child at the end of the day students are dismissed at 3:05. “Pick-ups” will be called to the small gym prior to the first buses being called.
Please read the following directions carefully:
1. You may park behind the high school, in the parent lot across from the main entrance of the school, or in the staff lot located at the gym entrance.
2. Parents/Guardians will gather in the foyer outside of the gym, where staff members will be available to dismiss your child.
3. The children will be waiting in the multipurpose room or hallway and will be called to the gym foyer for pick-up.
