Lost & Found

The lost and found is overflowing again. It is full of nice sweatshirts, coats, and even boots! Sometimes our kids are better at losing things than finding them, so feel free to stop by school and take a look yourself!

2023-2024 Ferson PTO Board Officers' Election

The purpose of the Ferson Creek Elementary Parent Teacher Organization is to enhance the curricular and extracurricular educational experience of all children and to support programs which would otherwise not be offered by providing necessary funding, volunteers and materials to teachers, students and the school.

The PTO is comprised of 3-8 elected Board Officer positions in addition to Ex Officio Board Members, dozens of non-elected committee chairs, and numerous volunteers. For the 2023-2024 school year, we are electing the Board Officers.

This year's Board Officers are working together as a team to help the PTO run efficiently and smoothly. To fulfill the IRS requirements for a 501(c)3, these officers will include position titles, such as President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer; however, this year's nominated officers have chosen to work collaboratively, regardless titled positions.

Please cast your vote below for the PTO Board Officers for the 2023-2024 school year. Voting is open to any Ferson Creek parent, guardian, or staff member. Anyone that does not vote will be considered to have an abstained ballot.

Ballots must be submitted before May 14, 2023 at midnight. Ballots received after this time will not be counted.

Thank you for your support,

Ferson Creek PTO

Dear Parents,

It’s hard to believe there are only a few weeks of school left. This is a reminder that you will need to come to school to pick up your child's medication by the last day of school, Friday, May 26th. Medications that are not picked up at the end of the year will be disposed of according to the D303 policy. This policy also does not allow medication to remain in the health office over the summer for reuse in the fall. Medication must be picked up by a parent or adult designee with the parent’s permission.

Looking ahead to the 2023-2024 school year, if your child requires medication or any action plans, your child will need new physician orders and action plans for the school year. Forms can be found under health services on the D303 site or linked directly here:





All incoming kindergarten students must present a record of a Complete Health Examination (physical exam) with all required immunizations prior to the 1st day of school.

Students entering into kindergarten or 2nd grade will need a dental examination and form completed within 18 months of May 15th, 2024. Current 2nd grade students require a dental examination and form completed within 18 months of May 15th, 2023. A vision examination and form is also required for incoming kindergarten students.




These forms can be submitted to the main office or emailed to the school nurse at donna.holloway@d303.org. Please reach out if you have any questions. The health office direct line is 331-228-2304

Thank you and have a Wonderful Summer!

Ferson Creek Health Office Nurse,

Donna Holloway
