PTO Write-A-Check Campaign 

Thank you to everyone who has provided generous contributions & support since the start of the 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! Your donation is in lieu of paying dues to be a member of the PTO, as everyone is considered a member. 

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. We welcome any amount - $25, $50, $75, etc!

2017-2018 PTO Opportunities

Each year, the Ferson Creek Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) sets out to enhance the curricular & extracurricular experiences of all children and to support programs which would otherwise not be offered by providing necessary funding, volunteer support, and resources. In doing so, the PTO relies on support from our elected officers, committee chairs, volunteers, school staff, and all Ferson Creek families.

We encourage you to be a part of a committee, to volunteer for a shift during an event, to help during school hours or from home, to donate food or supplies for an event, to provide a corporate sponsorship, and much more… The possibilities are endless! 

All help is welcome and appreciated!

Please select ALL areas in which you are interested in supporting via the included SignUpGenius link:


(As we continue through the school year, the PTO will be seeking additional help for other events and activities, as well.)

The PTO is also always looking for new ideas. If you have a suggestion and/or are interested in more information about supporting the Ferson Creek Learning Community via the PTO, please contact Shannon Puri via email at ShannonPuri@hotmail.com or via phone at (630) 209-9908.

Thank you for supporting the Ferson Creek PTO!
