September PTO Meeting

Our first PTO meeting is scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday, September 12th, at 9:30 AM. The meeting will take place in the staff lounge and will last approximately one hour. If you are unable to attend but would like to participate via phone, you may do so by calling (828) 267-7842. 

24th Annual Kick-a-Thon 

It is with much excitement, Dr. Sculles, a stage IV cancer survivor will be representing Ferson Creek Elementary School as a kicker at the 24th Annual St. Charles North and East Drill Teams Kick-A-Thon on the evening of Friday, September 15, 2017. The fundraising event will be held at East High School during the Annual Cross-Town Classic North vs. East Football Game. Proceeds raised through this fundraising event will go directly to the Fox Valley Chapter of the American Cancer Society and the Living Well Cancer Resource Center in Geneva. 

If you are interested in making a donation to the Kick-A-Thon on behalf of the Ferson Creek Learning Community, between now and Thursday, September 14, 2017, you may do so by stopping in the school office or by sending a donation with your child. Also, all students and staff have been invited to sign a banner bearing our school name, which will be carried on the night of the Kick-A-Thon in memory of, or in honor of someone we know who has been touched by cancer.

Dropping Off Items 

In the event you need to drop off something for your child during the instructional day, please check in with Mrs. Sutherland or Mrs. Lippelt in the office before placing the item on the colorful, grade-level shelf in the lobby. 

PTO Mum Orders 

With fall right around the corner, it's time to place our annual mum orders! Consistent with last year, the cost per mum is as follows: one for $12, two for $20, or three for $25.

Orders can be placed using the attached form through this Thursday, September 14th. 

Lead Room Parents & Classroom Volunteers

PTO Write-A-Check Campaign 

If you have not done so already, please consider donating to the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), in support of the Ferson Creek Learning Community via our Write-A-Check Campaign, now through Friday, September 29th! 

This one-time fundraiser, which takes place of selling cookie dough, magazines, wrapping paper, and much more throughout the year, is our main revenue for the year. All money goes directly to the students and staff and funds field trips, assemblies, fun playground supplies, educational resources for the classroom, PTO events such as the Boo Bash & Science Night, and much more!

Our goal for this year is $13,000, which is what we were able to spend on new fiction & non-fiction books for each classroom last year!

It is as simple as writing a check made out to the Ferson Creek PTO, making a cash donation, or paying online via PayPal on the Ferson Creek PTO website –www.fersoncreekpto.com. Cash & check donations can be dropped off, in the main office via the envelopes that were sent home today. We welcome any amount - $25, $50, $75, etc!

Thank you to everyone who has provided generous contributions & support since the start of the campaign!
