Are You New To Falmouth?

Welcome! Check out our intro flyer to help you familiarize yourself with the school and the PTO. Download this great resource for info about the town of Falmouth. In addition, please sign up for our First Mates program. We look forward to meeting you soon!

First Mates: At your request, your family will be matched with a seasoned Falmouth parent who will be your “First Mate.” This First Mate will help you navigate through your first year. Questions about drop-off, bus schedules, lunch? Volunteering, extracurriculars, or anything you just don’t know? Your First Mate can help!

How Current Parents Can Help

First Mates: Assist new student families by matching incoming parents with seasoned Falmouth parent volunteers. First Mates offer a friendly resource to help answer questions about any school process, procedure, or program. Don’t worry – you are not expected to know all the answers! Your role is to look for resources or point your family in the right direction and our PTO committee will be here to help you along the way.
Class Navigators: Primary liaison between the PTO, the class teacher, and their fellow class parents. They assist with communications and collaborations with class parents/caregivers on the PTO's behalf.
Fleet of Families: New this year! The PTO needs a group of people (parents, grandparents, siblings who need volunteer hours) we can contact if we need help with small or large tasks. Requests could include: sorting papers, running an errand, or signing up to help at a school event. We send an e-mail with what we need help with... you e-mail us back if you can help. It's as easy as that!
