Fall Creek Intermediate - December 1st, 2019

Riley Classic Is Coming....

Riley's Hospital has been a part of the lives of many of our Falcons, past and present!! We feel a strong need to support the service that has supported and will support so many of our Falcon families!!


The 2019 Kids Caring and Sharing Event to raise money and awareness for Riley Children's Hospital will officially kick off December 4th and will end with our Staff vs. Staff dodgeball game on December 13th at the end of the school day.


The event will take place during school hours and there is no charge for tickets. However, students may purchase raffle tickets to participate in various events such as:


  • the chance to pie a teacher in the face
  • basketball relay race
  • or random prize drawings.


Concessions will also be for sale the week of the event (Dec. 9th, 10th, and 11th) with all proceeds from concessions and raffle tickets going directly to the Riley. All concessions will cost $1 and students will bring an order form home the week before the event.



For those who would like to donate to Riley's Children's Hospital, we will also accept donations of any amount. Cash, check, or online giving is available. Please make checks out to Riley Children's Foundation and put FCI Riley Classic in the memo line.

From HSE Schools Administration

Hamilton Southeastern Schools will no longer be administering NWEA in the spring. Our students in grades 3-8 now participate in ILEARN testing in the spring. Your child will continue to participate in NWEA testing in fall and winter. Winter NWEA testing will run from January 21, 2020 – February 7, 2020. Teachers use this information to help plan for students’ instructional needs. This testing will also be used in part to identify students in need of high ability services.


More information about identification for high ability services can be found at https://www.hseschools.org/academics/intervention-acceleration/high-ability Your child’s teacher will be happy to answer any questions you may have about NWEA testing.

6th Grade Girls Basketball Try-outs

6th Grade Girls Basketball Try-outs will be held December 11th & 12th, from 3:00-5:00pm. Please pick your child up at Door 2. Basketball permission slips must be turned in to Coach Jahn in order to try-out by December 9th. Click here to download the basketball permission slip. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Jahn, ajahn@hse.k12.in.us

Lost & Found

Remind your child to stop by the lost and found to see if any of the items are his/hers before Winter Break. All remaining items will be donated to a local charity after school dismisses after January 7th, 2020.
