Cardinal Courier: January 22nd

Where Learning Takes Flight

A Note from Mrs. Tallent

This week we had a visit from Dennis Lee and Nanna Pudding. Always a fun show and the students love it!

We hope you have been following @humbleisd_fce on twitter! The Newline smart boards that were purchased with Boosterthon funds are now in classrooms, and teachers have been tweeting some of the ways students are utilizing them! Our PTO Spring Fundraiser, "Lights, Camera, Auction", is coming up in February! Their fundraising efforts will be focused on purchasing more Newlines...putting us closer and closer to reaching our goal of having one in EVERY grade level classroom!

Our Friendship Parties are right around the corner! We would appreciate it if you would make every effort to send students with paper valentines that do not include treats/candy. Please pay attention to grade level party times and make sure you bring your ID to check-in on the day of the party. I will continue to monitor our campus Covid numbers, but for now we will be allowing visitors to come in for our parties. If we need to make any adjustments as we get closer, we will communicate those changes to you.

ISO Wine Donations for Spring Fundraiser!

The Fall Creek Elementary PTO is planning our 2022 Spring Fundraiser at the Golf Club of Houston on Feb 26: Lights, Camera, Auction! We are seeking wine donations for the Wine Pull Table. In 2020 generous Fall Creek neighbors donated 40 bottles of wine for the event, which raised over $800! We are particularly in need of bottles with a value of $20 or higher. You can drop off or we can pick up the donation, whichever is most convenient for you. Please contact Wendy at if you would like to donate. Thank you!

Sponsors & Donations Needed!

The FCE PTO invites you to participate in the 13th Annual FCE Spring Fundraiser as an event sponsor or auction donor. This is an excellent opportunity to contribute to the continued success of Fall Creek Elementary. With your support, we will be able to continue funding various academic, cultural, and technological learning activities for our students. Specific goals for this year are to equip all classrooms with Interactive Smartboards. These Interactive Smartboards are classroom devices that allow students to interact with the learning material. They become part of the lesson and even teach each other. It supports brainstorming, visuals, and note taking in a student-driven classroom. Please consider sponsoring or providing a donation to support our stars!
