PTSA Upcoming Events        

Reflections Contest - Deadline has been extended to November 30.   Theme is "Show Your Voice!"  Reflections is a Nationwide PTA program that is a creative and fun way for all students to engage in the arts. There are 6 categories: film, dance, musical composition, photography, visual arts and literature.  Students submit artwork to their local PTA by November 30.   Works are judged at the local PTA level and the top three winning entries in each category and age group advance to the Council level.  Students must adhere to participation rules, as well as rules for their specific arts area.     Rules and guidelines and student entry form can be found on the PTACHC website.   Please submit artwork along with the student entry form to FQMSPTA.President@gmail.com 

Folly Fest - The planning meeting for January's Folly Fest is Wednesday, November 30, at 7:00pm.  If you are interested in helping with this event, join us using Google meet code:  FQMS.  You will need to be logged into your students account to attend the meeting.

Donations needed - PTSA is looking for donations for the Holiday Hot Chocolate & Cookie Bar for FQMS staff on Tuesday, December 13.  Signup here to donate items, and use our Amazon wishlist to ship directly to the school.  Thank you for donating!

Toys for Tots Drop-off Location - FQMS is a Toys for Tots Drop off location this year.  People wishing to donate to the Toys for Tots campaign can drop off toys during school hours at FQMS from now until Wednesday, December 14.  Bins are located inside of the lobby.  Toys for Tots is not part of the "Adopt A Family" program.  Adopt A Family is also collecting gifts for 3 families in need this season.  A separate email with a signup was sent last week with information.

Falcon Day Donations Needed - PTSA is asking for donations and volunteers for the last Falcon Day of the year to make it a fun event for the students.  We are also looking for a DJ or someone who has a great sound system and is willing to donate 2 hours.   Please signup here.

FQMS Spiritwear -  Folly wear is great for rising 6th graders for the holidays!  Free shipping on all orders $50 or more.  Get your Folly gear at https://www.follyquarterspiritwear.com/   Show some of your Falcon Pride!  

Donation Shed - Just a reminder that the donation shed is for textiles only.  Please do not drop off toys.  The sign on the outside of the shed clearly states what is accepted and what is not accepted.   Please consider donating winter coats and other winter gear to the Kindness Pantry or save your coats for our annual Fall Coat Drive next year.

Chromebooks - Just a reminder that students need to charge their chromebooks overnight and bring the chromebook to school daily.  Chargers may be left at home.

Join the PTSA - Folly Quarter PTSA strives to make the environment at Folly Quarter a positive and enriching experience for staff, students and the community.  PTSA has a lot of great things lined up for the school year, but we desperately need volunteers and membership to be successful!  We encourage all school stakeholders to get actively involved in the PTSA by visiting:  https://fqmsptsa.memberhub.com/store and joining the PTSA.  Sometimes volunteering is an hour or two of time or a donation of gift cards, food, or drink for events.  We have a lot of opportunities to get involved a lot or a little, your choice, but please know any amount of time is greatly appreciated.
