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.

Open House Sign-Up

As you know, we have been working on creating an opportunity for parents to come see their child's learning spaces. We are excited that we have been able to put together plans for Open House types of evenings. There will not be formal presentations, as this is meant to provide you the opportunity to view your child's classroom and meet their teachers in-person. There are three dates based on grade levels, in order to better accommodate our group sizes. Please view our Open House plans for details regarding dates, times, and the link to sign up. We are looking forward to welcoming you into the building.

PTO-DIRECTORY SPOT

Our 2021-2022 Ferson Creek Elementary School directory, DirectorySpot, is waiting for you!


Please complete this form to be included:

https://FersonCreekPTO.tiny.us/2021-2022DirectoryRegistration

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.


Why DirectorySpot?

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.
