Fall Teacher Treat Days
We love our teachers here at FSP, and wanted to treat them with a little Fall Treat.
Grand Prairie Fall Teacher Treat Day
Grand Prairie Book Fair
The Fall Book Fair at Grand Prairie is October 21st-25th. The FSP, your 157c PTO, needs your help to run the Book Fair.
- Set up is Friday, October 18th, 9:00am-12:30pm
- Book Fair is open Monday, October 21st - Friday, October 25th, 8:30 AM - 2:45 PM
- Family Literacy Night is Wednesday, October 23rd, 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM; Book Fair will be open 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM
- Tear down is Friday, October 25th, 2:45 PM - 5:00 PM
The Book Fair is held in the Tigers Den. Volunteers are needed to assist children picking out books, return unwanted books to the correct location, and ring out student purchases at the cash register.
The SignUp Genius is divided into time slots throughout the day according to your child's library time. Next to the time slot are the classes that will be coming in during that time...you will be able to shop with your child and then help the other half. If you can work more than one time slot please feel free to sign up for more. Even if it's not your child's class time we can always use the help!
If you have any questions about the Grand Prairie Fall Book Fair and volunteering please contact Nicole Guest at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you to ALL our Volunteers for the Scholastic Book Fair!
Chelsea Family Literacy Night at the Book Fair
Chelsea Parent Teacher Conference Dinner 2019
The teachers at Chelsea will have a long day of parent-teacher conferences on Monday, Nov. 25th. When they break for dinner, each school, with the help of the FSP (Family School Partnership), has a tradition of providing dinner for approximately 90 staff members. The school will serve soup and sandwiches. The rest comes from generous food and drink donations from you, the parents!
We are looking to provide side dishes, desserts, and beverages. If you are willing to donate a side dish, dessert, or beverage (water, pop), please sign up!
All donations will be accepted on Monday, November 25th from 7:30AM to 4PM at the front office.
Nonperishable items may be dropped off the week before if that is more convenient. If you have any questions, please contact Georgette Kristin, email@example.com.

Remind 101 FOR 157c Booster Events
Remind 101 App is a reminder system to send out quick, short reminders via text or email about upcoming news. The 157C Boosters (Band, Orchestra, Athletic, Chorus, Family School Partnership & Education Foundation) use Remind 101 to send out reminders regarding hot lunches, ticket sales, volunteer needs, order deadlines, etc. New restrictions from Remind have forced us to create multiple groups to keep our audience for each group under 150 people. Below are the different groups created for the 157C Booster Remind 101.
Please choose the one or two that apply to you.
Grand Prairie parent Remind Text 81010 the message: @gp157cb
