School-Wide Food Drive

Hi Fall Creek Families,

We at Fall Creek thought it would be a FUN idea to have a friendly bit of competition in our school to see if we can meet our school-wide food drive goal of 600 items this year. All the collected nonperishable foods will be donated to the United Way, who will in turn will donate it to our local food pantries.

Allison on had the great idea of having a “theme” per day to make it easier for us:
Mon - applesauce
Tue - peanut butter
Wed - boxed macaroni and cheese
Thu - soup
Fri - donors’ choice

Of course, it’s just a suggestion, not a MUST. We will ask for donations starting on Monday, May 23 for two weeks (8 days total), culminating on Friday, June 3. When we reach our goal, everyone will be rewarded with an extra recess (time to be determined by individual teachers).

CANs we do it?! YES we CANs (get it?:) Notes will be sent home tomorrow, Friday, and the thermometer and container to collect the food will be near the Main Office soon.

Tomorrow is Dress As A Character From A Book Day

Apparently (some) kids were told in school last week, but nothing has been communicated to parents until now: Tomorrow (Friday 5/13) is Dress As A Character From A Book Day at Fall Creek! This is not mandatory, but it’s fun — so if your child wants to dress up as a character from a book, go for it! (Commence stampede of parents to area costume and craft shops….)

Announcement + a link to some costume ideas on the Fall Creek Elementary School Twitter.
