From the Principal
Below you will see two flyers regarding Big Hearts of Fox Valley. Ferson is helping 25 D303 families this holiday season. If you are interested in supporting this organization, there are a few ways to help. Please see the second flyer for collection dates, donation ideas, and if you click the flyer you will be directed to the PushCoin page where you can make a general donation to the cause.
Today 4th Grade had the opportunity to welcome St. Charles Mayor Lora Vitek for a special presentation on local government. Mayor Vitek shared her experience as the mayor, key roles of her job, and ways students can get involved in their community. Uniquely, our students took time to answer questions that Mayor Vitek asked of them. Our students were an amazing audience! They were attentive, great listeners, and asked thoughtful questions. It was such a wonderful experience for our students!
Enjoy your weekend!
Halloween at Ferson Creek
Halloween is just around the corner! We will celebrate Halloween on Monday, October 31st. This year, we will hold our Halloween parade outside at 1:45 pm. Parents are welcome to view the parade from the blacktop area behind the school. In the event of inclement weather, the parade will move to the gym. Classroom celebrations will take place after the parade. While wearing costumes is optional, there are a few guidelines:
- Props representing weapons are not allowed.
- Students should not wear costumes which promote gore, violence, or inappropriate imagery.
- No costume face coverings or masks can be worn.
October 31st – Classroom Celebrations
Pre-arranged volunteers should plan to sign in and have their license scanned, and get their visitor’s badges just prior to the start of the classroom celebrations. Our celebrations are scheduled from 2:00 PM to 2:45 PM.
Veterans Day Assembly
We are excited to welcome back our in-person Veterans Day assembly. This year we will be celebrating Veterans Day on November 11th! Veterans Day is a day set aside to honor American veterans of all wars. Many of us know or have known men and women in our families or friends who have served in the armed forces to defend our country. This year we would like to take time to honor these individuals by acknowledging their time served and to honor them at an assembly beginning at 9:00 am on that day.
If there is a veteran that you would like to recognize by having them included in our Veterans Day video, please email our LRC director Renee Ignoffo at firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email, please include your child's name, the veteran's name, the veteran's relation to your child, a picture of the veteran, and branch of the military. Please send all pictures to Mrs. Ignoffo no later than Tuesday, November 1st.
If your child has someone in your family, or a friend of your family, who they would like to invite to attend our assembly please rsvp to Audrey Hughes at email@example.com, no later than Friday, November 4th so that we can plan accordingly.
Big Hearts of Fox Valley Week
