Tips and Tricks

Drop off and Pick up:

When dropping off or picking up your child, please use “the loop” located between

Firgrove field and Ballou Jr. High off of 136th ST. If you have to come into the school for any reason, you may park in the back parking lot in a designated space. Just be sure not to

double park and if you use the lot you must check in with the office and sign in. The turn-around is NOT a drop off or pick up loop, it is only a place to turn around if the lot is full.

Volunteering in the Classroom:

First, to volunteer you must fill out and return a volunteer form and wait to hear from the district.

Once your application has been approved, you will attend a training session and

receive a badge. When volunteering, make sure you first check in with the office and sign into the volunteer book and wear your badge at all times when on campus.

Parent Connection Center:

Located in the office area, we have a new meeting place filled with information for our

Firgrove parents. Come check out the Parent Connection Center and enjoy a chance to gather interesting information about what is going on at the school and in the community, help with your child’s learning styles, and some conversation with other parents. This is a wonderful place for our parents to get together and share.
