FBCS has a variety of opportunities in which to take part! Can you be of service?
We are always looking for parents or helpers with talents in a variety of areas. We can use just about anyone! We are currently looking for storytellers, recess monitors, computer specialists, seamstresses, lunch fundraiser coordinators, pianists, bus drivers, coaches, those who can file, researchers, those who can run errands, those who can keep sports stats, run concessions or run the game clock and more! Contact the school office if any of these sound interesting to you! Can’t commit regularly? Check these opportunities out below:
January 17, 2015 – FBCS Elementary Basketball Tournament at South Pekin Elementary Gym. The concession stand and admissions are always in need of volunteers. Make a baked good to sell, set up the concessions, take a shift selling food or taking admissions, or clean up afterward. There is plenty of service opportunity to go around!
February 27, 2015 – Our annual Bowl-A-Thon is a huge fundraiser for the fine arts programs for the school. Each student competes to raise the most pledges per point and then knock the pins down! Our SOS Warriors volunteers put together the goodie bags we hand out to the particpants and the Booster club rewards the students for different levels of participation. We can use your help to make sure students are corraled and all the scores are properly recorded that day, especially for the little ones!
April 24, 2015 – FBCS Carnival and Community Open House is now in the Spring!! This is a fun evening and a great opportunity to invite family and friends to enjoy and support our school! In addition to the activities, we also host direct sales vendors for your shopping enjoyment. The 7th-12th grade classes have various game and food booths that help them reach goals to cover expenses for their future senior trips and school gift. We need a few volunteers every year to help this night go smoothly!

There are plenty of opportunities before this event to chip in with shopping for needed items and setup.
