157c Holiday Night was a Fun Night

Thank You to everyone who came to FSP Holiday Night. This was our first time running the event at night. We have learned a lot and received some great suggestions for next year. Everyone was so patient with the check out process and we appreciate that.

Hopefully you all had a chance to get some hot chocolate and enjoy the photo booth and crafts.


Thank you to all the volunteers that stepped up and worked the evening. As you saw having volunteers is very important and the more we have the better an event can be.

Please remember to check your Rev-Trak receipts. All hot lunch sales will be done through the 157c website on RevTrak. No paper forms will be used this year. The Rev-Trak site will allow credit card or check payments.

January hot lunch and smoothie sales are now closed.

You can still buy future lunches on-line as long as you purchase them by the 15th of the month before. For example any February hot lunches or smoothies need to be purchased by January 15th.

You can find the entire hot lunch and smoothie schedule with the menus and booster that is sponsoring that lunch on the 157c website.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer badge pictures were taken on Picture Day. If you missed this date please call the school office and see if they have someone available to take your picture the next time you are coming in. Having a badge makes it easier to get checked in and the school doesn't have to print the paper badge each time.


Hickory Creek uses parent volunteers to take care of the much needed copying at school. If you are interested in helping out please go to the signup genius link below to see the days and times needed.

Hot Lunch Distribution SIGNUP GENIUS LINKS

FSP sells Hot Lunches and Smoothies in order to raise funds during the year. We need volunteers to help us distribute the lunches/smoothies to the students. The links below are to the SignUp Genius pages for each FSP Hot Lunch or Smoothie Day.

Regular Lunch Volunteers at Grand Prairie and Chelsea

FSP is no longer coordinating the day to day scheduling of regular lunch volunteers. The signup genius links for these schools are below. Thank You for your support!

About 157-c Family School Partnership (FSP)

We are the 157c Parent Teacher Organization. We are non-profit. We provide free family events as well as parent support, teacher appreciation, assembly funds, and curriculum enrichment. All parents with students in 157c are encouraged to help us. We can only do as much as we can with the volunteers that help. If you prefer not to support our fundraisers you can always support us by donating to our un-fundraiser. You can do this via Rev-Trak under FSP.

FSP meets monthly on the first Tuesday.
