Ferson Creek eNews

From the Principal...Kristy McKnight

Our Talent Show last Friday was simply AMAZING!! Seeing all of the kids shine with their unbelievable talent was awesome. I am convinced that we must be the most talented elementary school around! A huge thank you to Dawn Forkner for coordinating everything!

This week was Staff Appreciation Week and we cannot thank you enough for showering the entire staff of Ferson Creek with so much appreciation. Thank you for making everyone's week wonderful! The PTO also has a message of thanks below for everyone who helped make this week a success.

Have a wonderful weekend and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

This year instead of Field Day, we will be having LAMPE Day on Monday, May 23rd! LAMPE day is a collaboration amongst all of our specials teachers...LRC/Art/Music/PE/Empower. They have created a schedule of fun activities for all of our students that will celebrate our year of learning in these content areas. In order to make this day a success, we are looking for parent volunteers to help run stations and supervise students. If you are interested in helping out, please sign up here. Volunteers will need to check in at the front office with their drivers license. Additionally all volunteers are still required to show proof of covid vaccination or a negative covid test. We are so excited to have such a fun day with our students!
