Drop Off Cart
Need to drop off a forgotten lunch box or water bottle? Maybe a left behind instrument? Our new French Creek Drop Off Cart is here to help! Anytime you need to drop off items for a student, please use the Drop Off Cart located in the FC vestibule outside of the main office. Instructions and supplies are on the cart. An office staff member will retrieve the items and deliver to students.
Save the Dates
World Kindness Day: French Creek will be celebrating World Kindness Day on Friday, November 13th. On this day, people around the world attempt to make the world a better place by celebrating and promoting good deeds, helping others, and demonstrating random acts of kindness. Please join us!
American Education Week: Join us November 16th through 20th as we celebrate public education and honor individuals who are making a difference in ensuring every child receives a quality education.
Education Support Professionals' Day: French Creek will be recognizing the contributions and important work of our support staff team on Wednesday, November 18th during American Education Week. Today's support professionals provide invaluable services that enable students to learn in positive, supportive environments.
Virtual Scholastic Book Fair: The year is 2020 so that means the FCVPTA will be offering an Online Scholastic Book Fair to replace the traditional in-person fair at school. It will take place November 16-29 and will include our school’s own online store with a large selection of titles and other fun items. Why buy from Scholastic when I can buy from Amazon, you ask? French Creek receives 25% back from every dollar you spend. With your generous support last year, we were able to donate over 400 books to our teacher’s classrooms and add new collections of books to our library (See photos below). Thank you!!
