Valentine's Day

We are looking forward to our Valentine's Day celebrations on Monday! Class parties will run from 1:45-2:45 pm. Students are welcome to bring in valentines, we just ask that they bring one for each of their classmates.

Kindness Week is Coming!

Next week Ferson Creek is participating in Kindness Week! Thanks to Mrs. Naatz and our Student Advisory Board members, we have a wonderful week of activities planned for us at school. Each day we will share a kindness quote, listen to a story with a central theme of kindness, and participate in a kindness activity. I encourage you to find ways to spread kindness next week as well! Random Acts Matter has a week of events planned as well. See the flyers below for those details. We are looking forward to showing kindness all week long!

Superintendent Search

The BOE is seeking input from families and staff as they partner with a search firm in selecting candidates for the superintendent position. Please see this letter from Board President, Jillian Barker, which includes details regarding a survey as well as a Ferson Creek Forum.

5 Essentials Survey

Each year D303 participates in the 5Essentials Survey. This survey is completed by parents, staff and students in grades 4-11. You can find information regarding the survey here , including the link to complete the survey. We strive for as much participation as possible, so if you can take a few minutes to complete the survey, it would be greatly appreciated. Our 4th and 5th grade students will complete their survey during the day with their classroom teacher.
