Falcon Frenzy Basketball Game - Concessions

On Thursday November 21st, FCI is hosting its' first home Boys' Basketball game against SCI, starting at 3:15pm. All students are invited, and encouraged, to stay after school to attend the game. It costs $1 for students to attend the game.This game is affectionately known as the "Falcon Frenzy" game. We are in need of several volunteers to help sell concessions during the game. We will have three concession stands open during the game - two in the gym plus the main stand near the cafeteria for our visitors. Our students must remain in the gym during the game. We are asking for volunteers from 2:30-5:30pm to set-up, sell concessions, and clean up. If you are able to help out at the Falcon Frenzy game, please sign up here: https://signup.com/go/HFoCkKB.

Please contact Charron Wright at gcwright91@aol.com or 317-508-5244 with any questions.

December Treat for the FCI Staff

We are planning a fun, Pintrest-inspired treat for the FCI Staff in December. We are in need of large quantities of candy for our treat. If you are willing to donate the candy requested, please sign up here: https://signup.com/go/qUwdZcp. We are asking that all donations be dropped off anytime before or on Friday December 6th. Donations can be sent to school with your student or dropped off in the main office. Thank you!

Spirit Wear

As you may know, the district is working on updating all the K-8th grade mascots. The K-4 mascots are done, but the process is moving slow for the remainder of the mascot updates. We are hoping to have the updated falcon available for our spirit wear (it's close to being done), but we will proceed with either the old falcon or without a mascot on the shirts/sweatshirts if it isn't ready in the next few days. We will be sending home order forms in the next week or so, so please be on the lookout for those to come home. We will share copies via email and social media (Twitter and Facebook) as well. Our plan is to have spirit wear orders back and delivered to students before Winter Break. Keep in mind that Fall Creek Junior High's mascot is also a falcon, and when the update is complete the falcons at both schools will be the same, so spirit wear should have some lasting power. Please contact Amy Cox at aimster219@aol.com with any questions about spirit wear.
