Your 157c Parent Teacher Organization

The End of the Year is Near!

FSP has had it's last meeting of the 2016-2017 school year. The new FSP board will be working over the next few months to get a great plan together for next year. We may even have a completed calendar by the last newsletter to share with you. We are always trying to make things better so if you ever have any suggestions please let us know.

We hope to see many of you at the upcoming Incoming 3rd Grade Parent Step Up Night tonight and the Joliet slammers Game in June!

What's Going On?

Tonight! 3rd Grade Parent Step Up Day at Chelsea

FSP will be hosting a "Step Up" Event for the parents of incoming 3rd graders. The event is tonight (Monday May 15th) at 6:30pm. Dr. Nepote will give a presentation and a tour to help parents who are not familiar with Chelsea. Questions will be answered to ease your concerns about the new school.

Slammers Ticket Orders

Today was the deadline for the ticket orders for the 157C Night at the Slammers Game. We will get our tickets from the Slammers and start distributing them ASAP. Over 200 tickets were sold. It's going to be a great night for all. Thank You to everyone who purchased tickets.

School Supply Sale for the 2017-2018 School Year

FSP will once again be offering a complete kit of school supplies for your child for purchase. This is a fundraiser for FSP and is not required. You can purchase your own supplies if you prefer. This is just an easy time saving way to make sure you get all your required school supplies for next year. Flyers will be coming out this week regarding the sale from School Toolbox.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact the chairperson:

Grand Prairie T-shirt Orders

The t-shirts came in Friday for Field Day and were separated and delivered to each classroom. They will be ready for Tie dye day on Tuesday, May 16th.

The "Class Of" shirts will also be delivered to the class for students to take home this week.

Teacher Appreciation Week Was So Appreciated!

Teacher Appreciation Week was a great success. Thank You to all the volunteers who helped and donated to this week's activities. The teachers enjoyed every bit of our pampering. Here's some pictures. (Please note, teachers at Hickory Creek were spoiled as well. We missed the picture opportunities.)

T-shirts Donated to Frankfort Cheetahs

FSP was able to help out some of our teachers and students by purchasing the t-shirts worn at the Special Olympics. We are so proud to help with this great event.

PARCC Testing Treats for the Teachers

PARCC testing is a very crazy time for students and teachers. FSP tried to help the teachers a little with some treats during PARCC.

About 157-c Family School Partnership (FSP)

We are the 157c Parent Teacher Organization. We are non-profit. We provide free family events as well as parent support, teacher appreciation, assembly funds, and curriculum enrichment. All parents with students in 157c are encouraged to help us. We can only do as much as we can with the volunteers that help. If you prefer not to support our fundraisers you can always support us by donating to our un-fundraiser. You can do this via Rev-Trak under FSP.

FSP meets monthly on the first Tuesday.
