Remote Families - Bernie's Book Bank Pick Up
Bernie’s Book Bank has generously donated books for our students to read, enjoy, and keep. Each family will receive one bag of books for all of the children in the family to share. Remote family book bags are available for pick up in front of the building during the week. Bags are sorted into grade level boxes and are labeled with your family name. If you have multiple children at Ferson, your family's bag will be found with the grade level of your youngest child.
Please read these books over and over with your children at home. When your family has outgrown the books, pass them on for others to enjoy!
Have fun reading together!
Support Ferson Creek's Team Jimmy & Cal's Angels
There are many ways to get involved, even if you don't want to shave your head!
You can purchase a t-shirt, hair extension, or hat through PushCoin. All items will be delivered to school the week of the 19th and sent home with students. Remote families can pick up their ordered items on Wednesday, April 22nd after school from 2:00-4:00 pm. All funds received from the purchase of these items will go directly to Cal's Angels. As an FYI, the hair extensions connect using a barrette, so they can be easily attached and removed at your convenience.
To shave your head or donate your hair, sign up to be a part of Team Jimmy here. You can also use that link to make a donation directly to Cal's Angels. Details for the event on April 25th can be found here.
