Sponsored by the FQMS PTA
Dear Folly Quarter Families,
We hope you are safe and healthy. We are all looking forward to returning to school when it is safe to do so. Currently, the school is being completely sanitized and the FQMS PTA would like to acknowledge the work of the dedicated staff members who have gone above and beyond during this time, as well as those who are idled – the FQMS custodial and cafeteria staff, and the contract bus drivers.
The PTA has set up a donation page through the Gifts of Gratitude program, which is the same one used for holiday donations. This is a convenient and completely voluntary way to express gratitude to the dedicated staff members and bus drivers who are working to ensure that the building is safe to return to, and those who take our kids to and from school every day but are currently not able to do so.
Here’s how the Gifts of Gratitude Program works:
Due to the current situation, we are only collecting payment via PayPal, and there is a $3 processing fee added to online donations.
The deadline for families to participate in this optional donation program is April 17.
To get started, simply complete the online form. If you have any questions regarding the program, please contact Sonia Chapin at email@example.com.
Folly Quarter PTA
The FQMS PTA is offering a new program this year called Gifts of Gratitude. This program will be offered during the holiday season as well as at the end of the school year. This is a convenient and completely voluntary way for you to express your gratitude to the dedicated staff members and bus drivers who interact with your student every day. Our intent is to simplify your life and provide an easy way to say “Thank You.”
Here’s how the Gifts of Gratitude Program works:
Families can complete the online order form designating a dollar amount they would like to give individual staff members and bus drivers. You can give to one staff member or bus driver or to as many as you like. Any amount in $1 increments is appropriate. There is a $20 maximum contribution per individual staff member, per family. Each staff member and bus driver’s monetary contributions are totaled and converted into gift cards of the staff and bus driver’s choosing. Gift cards will be purchased through SCRIP and distributed prior to winter break.
Two easy payment methods are available:
Families are recognized on a certificate given to the staff members and bus drivers by name ONLY and NOT the amount given. Keep in mind that the Gifts of Gratitude Coordinator is the only person who sees each family’s contribution.
The deadline for families to participate in the holiday season program is NOVEMBER 1st. The deadline is set so that we can compile the contributions in time to allow SCRIP gift card orders to be placed, processed, and delivered to staff members and bus drivers prior to the winter break.
To get started, simply complete the online order form. If you have any questions regarding the program, please contact Sharon Schmidt or Valerie Kline at FQMSGoG@gmail.com.
The Falcon Legacy Brick Garden is the perfect opportunity to leave your mark at FQMS! The Brick Garden defines the entrance to FQMS and is a lasting reminder of Falcon Pride, participation and community spirit.
These personalized bricks can be engraved with up to three lines of lettering per brick and up to 15 characters per line. There are endless possibilities to send a message of congratulations, appreciation or inspiration. Perhaps you’d just like your name on the brick to commemorate your family’s years at FQMS. Bricks are added to the Garden only once per year – typically near the school’s year end.
Order your personalized bricks by May 31! For more information, contact Becky Kasbeer-Betty (FQMS.BrickGarden@gmail.com)
