Our lost and found is overflowing! When you are here next week for conferences, please check out the items. Everything will be out on a table in the front foyer.
Conferences are Thursday, October 7th and Friday, October 8th. Conferences will be offered both in-person and virtually so that you can choose the best option for your family. Scheduling is done via Home Access Center and is accessible now. You can find specific directions for reserving a conference time here. The conference scheduler will be open through October 4th. For those selecting in-person conferences, masks need to be worn while in the building.
Enjoy your weekend,
We are excited to welcome volunteers back into Ferson Creek to assist with a variety of classroom and school activities.
As a public school district, we are required to comply with the Governor’s Executive Order relative to COVID-19 mitigation steps in all district buildings. These steps will help to keep our students, staff members, and volunteers safe while they are in our schools. Given that, all volunteers must:
Show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test received within 72 hours of arriving to volunteer
Bring documentation to the front office upon arrival
Wear a properly fitting mask at all times while in the building
The Volunteer Information Form will be available for you to complete in the building the first time you volunteer
Volunteer opportunities vary depending on the teacher. We will verify opportunities that will be available here at Ferson Creek and will communicate specifics about signing up next week.
Our students and staff members appreciate your willingness to volunteer your time to assist in your school community.
Dinner, Drinks and Snacks for Parent-Teacher Conferences
The PTO is providing the Ferson staff with dinner, drinks, and snacks during Parent/Teacher Conferences on October 7, 2021.
We will be providing boxed meals from Smitty’s on the Corner, a local St. Charles business.
We are also looking for drink and snack donations. Please use this SignUpGenius https://fersoncreekpto.tiny.us/2021ConferenceMealsDonations to make a donation of snacks or drinks.
All food and drinks must be wrapped in individual servings. We cannot accept homemade treats. Donations should be dropped off at the Ferson Creek office no later than Wednesday, October 6th, 2021.
Thank you for helping us support the amazing staff at Ferson Creek!

Due to nationwide supply shortages, our Spirit Wear order delivery has been delayed. Our vendor is working to wrap up our order as quickly as possible.
