Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast
One of the highlights of a busy spring every year at Spalding is the annual Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast and you are invited to attend! This event is held to honor all of our volunteers - parents, guardians, and grandparents - who have volunteered throughout the year. The teachers and staff make all of the food, and every year the offerings are more delicious than the year before. Seriously, you don't want to miss this spread - it's fabulous and is such a special tradition!
Please join us for breakfast Friday, May 13 at 7:30 am in the Media Center. R.S.V.P. by signing up here. http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090e48a5ad28a31-annual
FUN RUN 2016 is Coming UP...
It's time to get your kids involved with the t-shirt design and sign up for this annual event.
You must turn in the FUN RUN form to your child's teacher no later than Monday, April 18th to guarantee a t-shirt on race day! Shirts are included in registration price for all Spalding Drive students. Shirts are great to wear on Spirit days! There will be late registration available on race day, but no guarantee of a t-shirt.
Please have your child submit their hand drawn t-shirt design to their teacher by Monday, April 18th. The winning design will be used on t-shirts for the event and the designer will win a prize as well as a free t-shirt! Designs should include "Spalding Drive Elementary" and "Fun Run 2016". Students must limit colors to black, orange and blue, and should not include small details or small writing. Please make sure your drawings are bold as this will make it easier to transfer your design onto the t-shirt.
Spalding Drive Parents
A large bin of long forgotten coats/jackets has been turned in to the Lost and Found. Please encourage your child to take another look. One student found one from the time of the Student Council elections!
ONLINE VOLUNTEER TRAINING
In 2014-2015, all visitors were required to sign in at our front office through the Raptor system. Volunteers who completed the online training were able to sign in as a volunteer. Many of you encountered trouble signing in as a volunteer since you had not completed the training, and just signed in as a visitor.
This will not be allowed this year. If you volunteer with students, you will need to complete the online training and sign in as a volunteer.
The deadline for completing this training is September 30, 2015. After that date, you will no longer be able to volunteer in the school until you have completed the training course. Please allow 48 hours for your application to be processed before you visit a school to volunteer. The training is valid for two (2) years and will be "attached" to all of your students at any Fulton County School.
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 this summer!
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.
