NOTE$ from the TREA$URER

October 4th was the deadline to pay your book fees in full. At any time the treasurers will be instructed by the HSE Admin. office to add the $8.35 processing fee for all unpaid accounts. At that time, all accounts with a balance will be pulled and sent to Transworld. To avoid this additional fee, please pay your book fees in full as soon as possible.

News From Your PTO

A Recap From The Chalk Walk

Big picture
Thank you to all the FCI Families for supporting this awesome event! Thank you to our PTO and all the wonderful volunteers for helping make this a memorable event for our students.

Box Tops

Helping fund FCI activities is as easy as clipping BoxTops or scanning your grocery receipts into the BoxTops App! Every BoxTop collected and /or scanned brings 10¢ to our school. BoxTops are found on many brands and items around your house.

If you have physical BoxTops, just clip them out, put them in a Ziploc bag labeled with your child’s name and homeroom teacher and send them to school. Remember these expire so don’t wait to send them in.

If you’re using the App, scan in your grocery receipt and follow the step-by-step instructions on the App!

Any questions, please contact Jen Low at jenniferlow06@yahoo.com.

Fall submission deadline is October 25th!

Spirit Wear Update

FCI's falcon mascot is being updated. Fall Creek Intermediate and Fall Creek Junior High will share the same falcon mascot (they currently have two different looking falcons). The re-design process is in the works and we've been told that the new falcon should be ready in late October. We are planning to wait for the new falcon before offering spirit wear. Since the falcons are now the same at FCI and FCJH, we will look to print some items that simply say "Fall Creek Falcons" with the new falcon logo that can be worn in either building. Yay for an extended life to spirit wear! Be on the lookout for spirit wear information to come home sometime in late October or early November.

Non-Discrimination & Non-Harassment Information

All students in HSE Schools deserve to come to school free of fear and to feel safe to be their authentic selves. Discrimination of any type is strictly prohibited and will not be tolerated at HSEHS Schools – this includes sexual harassment (Title IX) and discrimination based on disabilities or race (Titles II and VI).


If students ever experience any type of harassment, we ask that they report this immediately to an administrator, school counselor or trusted adult. Beyond reporting directly to building officials, HSE Schools has an entire support system in place for filing concerns and complaints, which can be located on our District website. https://www.hseschools.org/about/legal-notes

Student handbook

All HSE Schools student handbooks (K-12) are now online for easier access. The handbook for FCI can be found at the link below.


We encourage you to review it at your earliest convenience. Should you have any questions, please contact the FCI main office at 317-915-4220. Our staff is available to assist you.
