Ferson Creek eNews

November 5, 2021

From the Principal...Kristy McKnight

We celebrated the Ferson Way with an all school Bingo game today! Thanks to Dr.DuCharm's organizing, we were able to play Bingo with prizes as an entire school. What a great way to celebrate being Kind, Respectful Learners!

We are having an online Book Fair this month! The flyer is linked below. Be on the lookout for more details coming home in backpacks next week.

Thank you to all who donated wrapping paper and games for our Big Hearts of Fox Valley collection. As a reminder, Tuesday is Tape & Toy Tuesday! Our Student Advisory Board students will be out front collecting donations before school begins. The flyer below is linked to the sign up genius if you are interested in making a donation for a specific child.

Our lunch room is still in need of supervisors and they also need additional kitchen staff. If you are interested in part-time employment during the school day, this could be the position for you! Please contact Patricia Burton at 331-228-5242 or patricia.burton@d303.org for more information.

We are in need of clothing donations for the nurses office. Please sign up here if you are able to donate any boys clothing.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Kristy McKnight

Message From Our PE Teachers

We hope all our foxes had a fun and safe Halloween! We have been enjoying all the time we’ve gotten to spend outdoors with them so far this year. The change in weather also brings changes to our wardrobe requirements and expectations. It is still a goal of our department’s to be outside as much as possible to conduct our classes. This means that as your child is preparing for the school day, to pack a coat even if they are getting in a warm car to leave from home. Sending gloves(preferred to mittens) and a hat is also highly recommended. We will always use good judgement and shed layers when appropriate. Thanks so much for your help and contact us if we can answer any questions.
