National Volunteer Week

Your efforts & support truly make a difference at Folwell & we are grateful for you! As we speed towards the end of the year, I have 4 Folwell events that we need your help with. Please take a look below ~

Spring Running Club ~ this starts next Monday! Come out to the school yard from 8:35-9:00 to support our kids, supervise & help mark their miles. This is a great time to get to know other parents, students & enjoy our MN spring! We currently have NOBODY signed up & are in desperate need. Thanks for considering!

Falcon Tales ~ Colleen Timimi is looking for 3-6 volunteers to help type submissions from Folwell students to the Falcon Tales publication. Material to type would be received April 20 & due back April 27. Please contact Colleen at if you are able to help!

Folwell Learning Garden ~ Parents, the Folwell Learning Garden needs your help! If you know something (even just a little) about gardening and are willing to help the Learning Garden Committee would love to hear from you. We need volunteers to connect with classes, help in the garden, help set goals, get seeds and many oth
er tasks. For the last few years the garden has reached every classroom and student at Folwell and has been watered completely by volunteer families in the summer. We're on a good course but need a few more hands to keep our gardens growing and getting students involved.

If you're interested in helping please contact, Learning Garden Committee Chair, Angela Gupta, 
Thanks for considering this great opportunity!

Folwell Carnival May 6th ~ this is the largest event that the Folwell PTSA sponsors every year & is a great time to celebrate the year & have fun together as a Folwell family! Our committee (headed up by Mary McKie & Ursula Miller) has been hard at work planning some fun activities but it truly takes a village of volunteers to make this night run. We have made the volunteer shifts shorter in an effort to allow you plenty of time to enjoy the carnival as well with your family. You are always welcome to sign up for multiple shifts too if you would like.

As always, please contact me with any questions/concerns.
