OUR BOOK FAIR WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!
A huge thank you to our FCE volunteers and staff who assisted with the Book Fair, and to the students and families who purchased books and donated bears, blankets and money for the coin challenge. Because of your generosity, we will be delivering 40 blankets, 40 stuffed animals, hundreds of books, journals, activity kits, crafts and posters, and a $1,000 check to Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital. In addition, we were able to add new titles to the FCE library, put more books into each teacher’s classroom library, and FCE will receive over $4,000 cash profit from Scholastic. This is incredible! Thank you Fall Creek Elementary!
Thank you to Amy Michael, Marsie Finkelmeier, Natalie Russell and Becky Oldham for all of their hard work!
Exciting New Program coming to FCE!!
Puppies and Pals is a new program that is an extension of the Love on a Leash (LOAL) program that has been at FCE for the past 2 years. Love on Leash involves students reading books to therapy dogs every Wednesday. Our students that have participated in the LOAL program have enjoyed the program so much that we wanted ALL students to have this opportunity.
Trained therapy dogs and their handlers will visit individual classrooms at FCE for 20-25 minutes giving students the opportunity to pet the dogs and learn more about them during a student driven question and answer share time. The dog handlers may also share a book with the class during this time as well. The program will start in January.
If you do NOT want your child to participate in the Puppies and Pals program, please complete the form below or send an email directly to your child’s teacher AND myself at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive an email confirmation once I have received your email requesting that your child DOES NOT participate.
