From the Principal

We are so excited to welcome you on Monday for Back to School Night! This year, we will follow an open house type of format so that your children have the opportunity to show you around Ferson Creek and share some fun activities with you! This is a family event, and your children should be staying with you for the duration of your time in the building. Unlike Curriculum Nights in the past, teachers will not be holding presentations for parents. Specific curriculum information will be shared directly from teachers throughout the year so that you are kept informed regarding content and resources.

To help with parking, we ask that you follow the schedule below.

  • 6:00-6:45 Families with the last name A-M
  • 7:00-7:45 Families with the last name N-Z

Families should enter the front door, where students can pick up a Ferson passport and a map to help guide their travels around the school. We know your children are looking forward to sharing their school with you!

See you next week!

From Mrs. Ignoffo

Dear Ferson Families:

Here are three things you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:

  • Give your children a chance to choose their own books to read. The Bookfair is a great opportunity to do this!

  • Set a great example—let children see you read.

  • Have a collection of books in the home that you update to keep pace with your child’s changing interests and reading skills.

Our Online Literati Book Fair is now open. Please visit the website to browse and purchase books for your child(ren). You may also purchase digital gift cards for your child(ren) to use at the in-person book fair. The in-person portion of the book fair will begin on October 3rd in the LRC. Students will preview the book fair with their class during the week of October 3rd. Students may purchase books on October 3rd, 4th, & 5th or parents may purchase books for their child(ren) during parent-teacher conferences on October 6th. Remember, all purchases benefit Ferson Creek!
