Let us be your guide!

Falmouth Elementary School’s “First Mates” Program assists new student families by matching incoming parents with seasoned Falmouth parent volunteers. These “First Mates” offer a friendly resource to help answer questions about any school process, procedure, or program. Let a First Mate family be your guide!

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!

Wish to be matched with a Falmouth First Mate parent?


We’re looking for parent volunteers to sign up to be a Falmouth “First Mate” family. Once matched with an incoming family, your role is to reach out with an initial introduction, offer check-ins, or answer questions as they arise. 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.
