Parent involvement is critical for a successful school, so volunteer as a PTO officer or a committee chair for 2017-2018. There are jobs that take no more than a couple hours a month, some are seasonal, and a few that require a routine commitment. Although the PTO can always use more volunteers and assistance, at this time we are specifically looking to fill openings for two elected officers and particular appointed committee chairs.
Elected Officers (Elected at General Meeting): Secretary and Treasurer
After School Enrichment (ASE), Barnes & Noble Book Fair, Boo Bash, DirectorySpot, Fifth Grade Breakfast, Hospitality, School Beautification - Outside, Spring Bingo & Silent Auction, Spirit Wear, Take Home Folders, Teacher Appreciation Week, Volunteer Coordinator, Website and Marketing Communication, and Yearbook
Nominate yourself or someone else. All positions can be shared. Elections will be held at the PTO Meeting on Tuesday, May 9th at 9:30 am. If you have any questions, please contact Shannon Puri at ShannonPuri@hotmail.com or 630-209-9908.

We need volunteers to help the evening run smoothly. We have a variety of times and areas where we need help on Friday, April 28, 2017, between 1:00 pm and 9:30 pm. For most volunteer shifts, we are asking our volunteers to sign up in 30 minute increments, so that you have an opportunity to enjoy the evening with your family. Of course, you may absolutely sign up for more than one shift - in fact, we encourage you to do so!
Thank you for helping us support our students and staff at
Ferson Creek Elementary School!
May 1-5, 2017
This is a week of great events for us as a school to show all of our staff at Ferson how much we appreciate all that they do for our children. Below is a list of events and then details on how you can participate. Please consider signing up to make this successful.
- Monday - With the help of AVIC, your child made a beautiful craft expressing their appreciation for their teacher. Ask your child how they personalized it!
- Tuesday - Our dear staff love their healthy breakfasts, so we will be providing a breakfast buffet. Please see below to donate if able.
- Wednesday - Wear your teacher's favorite color!!! Teachers have told their students their favorite color, but don't know why. Let's surprise them!! Also, each staff member will receive a gift card courtesy of Townhouse Bookstore and tickets to Zanies comedy club.
- Thursday - On this day staff will enjoy a delicious lunch provided by Ferson PTO and Ferson families. Please see below if able to donate.
- Friday - Staff will have their chance to win raffle baskets made from items donated by you. No item too big, or too small, or too weird since we bunch them together to create baskets. Last year we created 32....let's try to beat that this year! Please email me directly if able to contribute toward this.
Thank you in advance. The staff really, really appreciates all we do for them. There are 75 staff members in total. Please feel free to email me with any questions. Thank you.
