Scholastic now offers a new feature called eWallet. You no longer need to send your child to school with cash to purchase books. You simply sign up for or use an existing scholastic account. You can then add funds to this account via credit card and set a limit for your child to spend. You will ONLY be charged for what your child spend within that preset limit. Please be on the lookout for scholastic book fair flyers coming home with your child or view the online flyer 
for more information.

Volunteer Opportunities

Get involved in your child’s class by volunteering for
Art Corps!

Many classes are still in need of Art Corps Volunteers to help teach and assist with art lessons in the classroom. Without volunteers, your child’s class could miss out on this incredible program! Even if you don’t want to teach a lesson, helpers are very important as well! The parent workshops are a lot of fun, and your children will love having you be a part of their art projects! Please talk to your class’s Art Corps liaison or your child’s teacher if you would like to volunteer for Art Corps. We are looking forward to a wonderful year of Enrichment for our kids.

You Make A Difference at Dingeman!

Be a volunteer!! Without the help of FFC volunteers like you, we would not be able to provide such a rich, exciting, and meaningful school experience for our children.  Please check with your classroom teacher about volunteering to be a Room Parent or Art Corps Liasion.  There are several classrooms that still need a volunteer for these positions.  Volunteering is a great way to be involved in your child's elementary school experience.  Please consider volunteering and helping out.  Thank you!
