Your 157c Parent Teacher Organization

And We're Off!

The 2016/2017 school year has started. Boo Hoo! Yahoo! We hope you all had a great first day of school.

Our first meeting is September 6th. Come join us for a meet and greet with a little bit of business squeezed in.

What's Going On?

Curriculum Nights

FSP has been at all the Curriculum Nights did you see us? FSP has a table at each Curriculum Night to provide information about who we are and what we do. Please stop by, say Hi, and get some information. If you missed us, please feel free to e-mail us at

3rd Grade Parents Step Up Day

FSP along with Dr. Nepote and staff presented a Step Up Day for 3rd Grade parents. This was a great opportunity for parents of new 3rd grade students to see the school and hear about the new experience their children will have at Chelsea. Lots of parents attended and we think it was a great event. And as an added bonus we got to see the awesome new paint job!

Hot Lunch and Smoothie Sales

You can purchase your hot lunches and smoothies for the 2016/2017 school year now.

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.

Lunches can be purchased for the entire year through August 31st. Or you can buy lunches as you like as long as you purchase them by the 15th of the month before. For example any November lunch needs to be purchased by October 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.

Exciting New Spirit Wear Is Here!

157c Spirit Wear has been on display at Meet and Greets and Curriculum Nights. Have you seen it? We have short sleeve, long sleeve, warm cotton, and dry fit. Sizes are available for kids and adults. Selections are for students, parents, and staff!

We will be doing on-line sales this year through our new vendor's website as well as order forms if you prefer. You can place your orders today! Log into, select 157c and enter the passcode FSP16. The deadline to place an order is September 13th. Orders will be delivered to the students in school. For Spirit Wear order questions please e-mail:
