Our Library is a Great Place to Volunteer Regularly
Volunteers are greatly needed in the FHES Library on a daily basis! Please consider volunteering once a week,
bi-weekly, or even once a month. This is a great opportunity for grandparents to get involved! Jobs may include shelving books, helping children locate books, assisting with check out, labeling books, etc. If interested in being a library volunteer, please fill out the form that will come home in this week’s Wednesday folders (or click here to print it off) and return it to your child’s teacher by October 28. You will be able to specify days/times you wish to volunteer.  Please note:  Mrs. Mock will be hosting training sessions for library volunteers on Tuesday, October 29 at 9:00am  OR  Thursday, October 31 at 2:30pm. (These sessions are not required but encouraged.) 

For the time being, please continue volunteering through the SignUpGenius link .

If you have any questions email Brianne Davis.
Health Room Information Cards
Fellow Foxes! Please help us prepare Nurse Allison and her health room volunteers!

This week, in Wednesday folders, you will see blue health room information cards .
This card is very important! Parent volunteers use it, so they know who to contact should your child get hurt or sick.

Please fill out and return ASAP but no later than October 30th.

If you have any questions, email Sara Carr .
