Tiger Trot-A-Thon is Spalding Drive Elementary’s biggest fall fundraiser and is a healthy alternative to traditional product sales to raise money for our school. This year’s theme is “Paws, Get Ready, Get Set….Glow!! This fundraiser is by all of our students and is sponsored by our PTO. All money raised stays right here at Spalding Drive and directly benefits our students and teachers through extra educational material and supplies and mini-grants (stimulating and educational projects proposed by our teachers)! Your support, enthusiasm and donations are vital to the success of Tiger Trot! We could not do this without our amazing SDE community!

ONLINE VOLUNTEER TRAINING
To keep in compliance with State Law and best practices, for the 2016-2017 school year, we will require that all persons interested in volunteering in the Fulton County School District to re-register/register (even if a person has completed an application in the past) by completing the new online volunteer registration/application process. Applicants should be prepared to spend about 10-15 minutes for the training and application process. In accordance with State Law, all volunteers must be current with the Child Abuse Reporting Protocol Training before being allowed to volunteer in our schools. It is very important that volunteers enter their full legal name as it appears on their government issued ID (please do not use nicknames or “goes by” names on the application). All applicants must wait 24 hours after applying for application processing and approval.
Does every person need to complete the registration process and abuse reporting training? No. A parent acting in the role of a parent is not required to register or complete the child abuse reporting training. Examples include visitors to the school for: parent/teacher conferences, 504/IEP meetings, school wide and classroom programs, eating lunch with their child, or any visit to sign in or check out their student. Visitors must however sign-in at the front desk and offer their government identification to be scanned into the visitor identification system.
Get ahead of the game and complete your
online volunteer training now!
We want our school to be the type of school where you feel welcome to volunteer…it truly takes a team effort and we know we could not do what we do without the support of our parents and volunteers. If you are unable to access the training site, please feel free to come and use our computers to complete the training.
