Room Parents and Classroom Helpers
We invite you to sign up to serve as Classroom Helpers. Unfortunately, due to current restrictions, we are not sure at this time if our volunteers (including Room Parents/Helpers) will be able to enter the building. However, these volunteers would work closely with the Lead Room Parents to help plan fun and safe games and activities for classroom celebrations and support the teacher throughout the year. These volunteers will also help provide supplies, ideas, and support as needed for the class.
Thank you for supporting our goal to enhance our students' education!
The SignUpGenius will open on Monday, Sept 13 at 6:00 pm. You will not be able to sign up prior to that time.

Open House Sign-Up
Our 2021-2022 Ferson Creek Elementary School directory, DirectorySpot, is waiting for you!
Please complete this form to be included:
REMEMBER, you can share as much or as little info as you'd like, but you need a minimum of one valid email address in order to log in to the system.
DirectorySpot can be accessed from the free app on your smartphone (Apple or Android) or from the website and it will always be updated with the latest information. The app is very secure; only parents and staff of our school will be granted access with personal login credentials. If you would like more information on the security features, please click on this link: https://www.directoryspot.net/security.php.
The directory will provide only information that families choose to share. The data can be updated any time throughout the year, so you can opt out, opt in, or update the data you choose to share any time. (If you opt out of sharing information in the directory, you will not have a way to access the directory.)
Once we have your data uploaded, you will get an email with instructions on how to download DirectorySpot and set your password.
DirectorySpot has many useful features. You can call, text, or email other parents or teachers with one click, right from the app. You can auto dial when you click on a phone number, and auto launch maps when you click on an address. If you hold down the cell phone number, you will get an option to send a text or call the number (iPhone only). DirectorySpot will even create an email if you click on someone's email address.
How do I access DirectorySpot?
In order to access the directory, you must first complete the online form to be included in DirectorySpot. When completing the form, you will need to share at least one valid email address (that will also be used for your username). Once your information is uploaded into the directory, you will receive an automated email with instructions to set a new password, if needed, and where to find the directory. If you opt out of sharing information in the directory, you will not be allowed to access the directory.
IF YOU WERE IN DIRECTORYSPOT IN THE PAST, YOU STILL NEED TO RE-ENTER YOUR FAMILY’S INFORMATION IN ORDER TO HAVE ACCESS TO THE DIRECTORY THIS YEAR. ALL DATA FROM THE PAST HAS BEEN CLEARED TO MAKE ROOM FOR THIS YEAR’S INFORMATION.
If you have any questions, please contact FersonCreekPTO@gmail.com .
