Virtual Curriculum Night!
Below you will find links to our Curriculum Night presentations for in-person learners. In addition to teacher/grade level presentations, you will also see a short welcome from me, as well as presentations from our specials teachers. Please review the appropriate presentations and submit questions prior to your scheduled Curriculum Night. Remember that there are two live Q&A sessions, where the teacher will address the previously shared questions. You do not need to attend both sessions. Links for the Q&A sessions will come directly from your child's teacher.
K-2nd: Tuesday, September 8th 6:00 pm or 6:30 pm
3rd-5th: Thursday, September 10th 6:00 pm or 6:30 pm
Thank you for your continued partnership in all of our learning environments!

Remote Book Check-out & Library Card Information
Please Remember to Certify!
Every day our morning arrival is improving! If it is possible to certify your child online prior to 7:30 am, that would greatly help our arrival procedures. There are some students that are coming with a luggage tag signed, but not the online portion completed. Please help us by doing both in the morning.
- Step 1: Log-in here, using your HAC credentials. Answer the questions honestly. If you receive the green "you are good to go" screen, your child is clear to come to school. You do not need to print the green ticket.
- Step 2: Initial your child's luggage tag (that we will be providing you) signifying your completion of the online form.
We are preparing this year’s family and staff directory, called DirectorySpot. Even if you were in the directory in the past, families must grant permission and share their information each year, in order to be included in the directory. Whether your child(ren) is in-person or remote, we would love to have your family included!
Please provide your family's permission and information here: https://tinyurl.com/FersonDirectory20-21
We are so excited for this school year! If you have any questions, please contact the Ferson Creek PTO at FersonCreekPTO@gmail.com .

Final Call for 2019-2020 Yearbooks!
AmazonSmile is a program that automatically donates a portion of sales to a selected charity. It does NOT cost shoppers anything additional, but it only works through AmazonSmile, not Amazon. You can now shop through AmazonSmile on your app as well as on the web! See the directions below to set it up. Every little bit counts. With more people shopping online, charitable donations can add up quickly!
Go to http://smile.amazon.com/
Search for 'Ferson' and you will be able to choose "Parent Teacher Organization of Ferson Creek Elementary School Inc."
Make sure to change your bookmark so that you go to the Smile site. We only get credit if you order from the Smile side. It must say 'smile.amazon.com' every time.
Shop on Amazon like you always have!
For those who are ordering lunches or a la carte drinks, please be sure there is money on your child's Push Coin account.
