Ferson Creek eNews

December 6, 2019

From the Principal...Kristy McKnight

We enjoyed seeing so many families in the building during conferences. Thank you to the PTO and all of the parents for providing the staff with an amazing breakfast and dinner. I'm trying to figure out a way to permanently have a coffee cart in our foyer, but I have a feeling that idea won't come to fruition!

Our very first Frosty Fest was a wonderful success! Thank you to all of you who volunteered your time, sold your great products, and did some shopping. Watching so many kids shop for those they care about brought a smile to my face. It was truly a fun afternoon at Ferson!

Please take the time to participate in our annual 5Essentials Survey, which collects feedback from parents, students, and teachers on elements related to school effectiveness. Your confidential participation helps to guide our improvement efforts. The survey window is open now through February 14, 2020. Please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ and select the appropriate survey. Attached is a letter providing additional information regarding 5Essentials. Your feedback is appreciated!

Have a wonderful weekend!
