Welcome to Ferson Creek PTO

The purpose of the Ferson Creek Elementary PTO is to enhance the curricular and extracurricular educational experience of all children and to support programs which would otherwise not be offered by providing necessary funding, volunteers and materials to teachers, students and the school.

BIG HEARTS OF FOX VALLEY 

We are pleased to be partnering this holiday season with Big Hearts of Fox Valley. Their Holiday Gift Program is intended for D303 students whose families are of low-income or experiencing financial hardship. Staff and other members of the greater St. Charles community anonymously shop for student “wish list” items to provide holiday gifts. 

 

Please view this letter to find out more information on how to enroll in the program or learn more about BHFV. 

ROOM PARENTS AND CLASSROOM HELP

We invite you to sign up to serve as Classroom Helpers. Unfortunately, due to current restrictions, we are not sure at this time if our volunteers (including Room Parents/Helpers) will be able to enter the building. However, these volunteers would work closely with the Lead Room Parents to help plan fun and safe games and activities for classroom celebrations and support the teacher throughout the year. These volunteers will also help provide supplies, ideas, and support as needed for the class.

 

The SignUpGenius is now open.

The Mums Committee would like to thank our Ferson families, friends, and staff for their incredible support during our first fundraising event of the year.

Selling, sorting, and hauling 1000 mums was no small task! We greatly appreciate everyone's patience and cooperation while our volunteers worked tirelessly to sort orders and to help load mums into cars.

 

Due to the collective participation and hard work of the Ferson Creek Elementary School community we were able to raise $3200 for our school! Thank you!

How can I help Ferson?

All parents, guardians, and staff members are welcomed to be a part of the PTO community. We rely on people like you to help our organization do great things! Even though school looks different than what we are used to, the PTO still works hard behind the scenes in any way we can.
