From the Principal...Kristy McKnight

Happy Friday!

I hope your weekend is off to a great start. There is a lot of information below...PTO fundraiser, restaurant night, Cal's Angels Just Shave It event, and summer camp, just to name a few!

Just a reminder that next Tuesday begins IAR testing for our 3rd- 5th grade students. It's important that students arrive to school on time so that we can stay within our scheduled testing windows. Thank you so much for your help with this!

I hope your weekend allows you to rest up and have fun!

Take care,

Kristy McKnight

Remote Families - Bernie's Book Bank Pick Up

Bernie’s Book Bank has generously donated books for our students to read, enjoy, and keep. Each family will receive one bag of books for all of the children in the family to share. Remote family book bags will be available for pick up in front of the building during the week of April 15th. Bags are sorted into grade level boxes and are labeled with your family name. If you have multiple children at Ferson, your family's bag will be found with the grade level of your youngest child.

Please read these books over and over with your children at home. When your family has outgrown the books, pass them on for others to enjoy!

Have fun reading together!

Support Ferson Creek's Team Jimmy & Cal's Angels

Cal's Angels is having their annual Just Shave It event on Saturday, April 25th. There are options to participate in person or remotely. All proceeds from this event will fund clinical trial research efforts to help kids fighting cancer in our community. Our Ferson Team, Team Jimmy, is named after our Ferson student who lost his battle to cancer last year.

There are many ways to get involved, even if you don't want to shave your head!

You can purchase a t-shirt, hair extension, or hat through PushCoin. All items will be delivered to school the week of the 25th and sent home with students. Remote families can pick up their ordered items on Wednesday, April 22nd after school from 2:00-4:00 pm. All funds received from the purchase of these items will go directly to Cal's Angels.

To shave your head or donate your hair, sign up to be a part of Team Jimmy here. You can also use that link to make a donation directly to Cal's Angels. Details for the event on April 25th can be found here.
