LAST AFTER SCHOOL CLUB SESSION MARCH 8
A big thanks to all the kids, parents, staff and volunteers that have helped make after-school clubs a success. This coming Wednesday, March 8th, is the fourth and last after school club meeting. Should you have any questions, please contact Carrie at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking forward to our final week with the kids. A huge thank you to Carrie Devine-Ransom for all of her hard work in organizing the After School Club program.
PENNIES for PATIENTS
The 4th Grade Student Council is joining forces with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society for their annual campaign - PENNIES FOR PATIENTS. By participating, FCE students will learn not only about the difference they can make, but learn about leadership, teamwork, and what "doing good" for others can mean. We will work with LLS to raise money in honor of Indiana blood cancer patients and survivors. Funds raised support life-saving blood cancer research and provide aid to local patients and their families. Every 3 minutes a child (under age 20) is diagnosed with cancer. Let's do our part to help with this very worthwhile campaign. Send your pennies (or any cash donation) to school between Wednesday, March 1- Friday, March 10. Donations will be collected in individual classrooms. The classroom that collects the most money earns a Pizza Party! Let's top last year's total of $4,680!
DISTRICT ART SHOW March 18 and 19
HSE District ART SHOW: 2:00-5:00 p.m. at HSE High School
Bring the whole family to check out this spectacular display of creativity. Look for Fall Creek Elementary's "Monet's Garden" themed display. Mrs. Parkison will be selecting student pieces and sending home invitations soon.
I hope to see you there!

ARTSONIA is virtual student art museum. Artsonia manages school art galleries in a safe and educational way. Please use your child's Artsonia permission slip to access a world of creativity! With Artsonia you can... upload art, add family to your child's fab club, give feedback, and purchase keepsake items. The purpose of this digital portfolio program is to track your artist's creative growth and keep a collective virtual bank of their creations over time. This is not intended to be a primary fundraising program. However, any money generated through Artsonia keepsake purchases will help provide art supplies for our artists. Thank you for your support. If you have any questions or concerns please contact our art teacher, Sherri Parkison, at email@example.com . Thank you.
