Streets Alive! This Sunday 1-5PM

Streets Alive! is happening this Sunday, September 25th, 2016 at 1-5 PM on S. Plain St. all the way from Green St. to Elmira Rd. and Clinton St. from Corn to Albany. for more event information: https://www.streetsaliveithaca.com/map-schedule

During Streets Alive!, the streets are closed to car traffic for this community building event. What better way to further strengthen our Fall Creek school community then to bike, walk, skate, scoot, or hop in the neighborhood many of our students and families live.

In addition to this lively event, there has been an offer from one of our new kindergarten families, to host a Fall Creek PTA bake sale in front of their house, which is on the Streets Alive! route. If you want to contribute to the sale, please contact me, Elaan, at president@fallcreekpta.org and if you are walking by on Sunday, stop and say hi and help support all the wonderful things planned for this year at Fall Creek School!

 

Thank you,

Elaan

Student credit union - volunteers needed

4 parent volunteers are needed for the Fall Creek Student Credit Union.  The student credit union starts Wednesday, October 5th, and is held every Wednesday morning in the gym, from 7:40 - 7:55 a.m.  The parent volunteers would only be expectet to work once every 3 weeks.  The tasks would be to simply double check the student deposits.  It’s an easy way to volunteer, especially for working parents, and help students saving money, while developing good financial habits.

Bring in your Box Tops!

Have you noticed the little Box Tops For Education squares on all sorts of products that you use, like Kleenex, cereal, granola bars, and even school supplies?  Did you know that every Box Top For Education we collect and send in will get us 10¢  for the Fall Creek PTA? And the Fall Creek PTA uses that money to fund SO MANY important activities in our school! 

It is an easy and effective way to raise money.  So, bring in those Box Tops and put them in the Box Tops Collection Box in the lobby starting Monday September 26.

Let’s see how much we can raise! Happy clipping!

For more info, email Christine Brouwer Hinman or visit boxtops4education.com. And here’s a list of participating products.
