Jump Rope for Heart!
Help fundraise for the American Heart Association! Any donations would be greatly appreciated! #KidsHelpingKidsWithSickHearts
Our Jump Rope for Heart event is quickly approaching and we are in need of your assistance. We would love two parent volunteers during their child's time slot. Duties will include serving refreshments and assisting with our event. Please let us know via email by Thursday, February 11th if you are interested in lending a hand.
Thank you for your support,
Allyson Morris and Kristin Abercrombie

Volunteer Registration Process
As you know, with the advent of our new sign in system our volunteer registration process changed. You only need to complete the process every year. Our volunteer process is as follows:
1. Register at http://www.fcsvolunteers.org/
2. Complete the mandatory online training.
3. Complete the volunteer application.
4. Please allow 48 hours for your application to be processed before you visit a school to volunteer.
5. When you arrive at a school for your first volunteer assignment, please present your government identification (i.e. driver's license, state issued ID cards, Mexican consular cards, green cards, military ID) to verify your identity.
In the coming weeks, we will have MANY opportunities for volunteers. Please ensure the above process is complete 48 hours prior to your volunteer assignment, this includes all field day volunteers. Remember, the volunteer process must be completed, including scanning your license even if you are registered as a visitor.
Please call the school or the FCS volunteer office at 470-254-7159 if you have any questions with the process.
