Room Parents and Classroom Helpers
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.
Thank you for supporting our goal to enhance our students' education!
The SignUpGenius is now open.
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.
Check out the link below to see a variety of ways that you can help make Ferson a welcoming and exciting place for our students to learn. There's a wide variety of ways you can help, from volunteering as a committee chair to volunteering on as needed basis, from home on your own time to during the school day. We look forward to working together for our students!
(If you signed up during Welcome Day, you may see that your name has transferred from the paper sign ups that were posted on the front windows of the school onto this SignUpGenius.)
**PLEASE NOTE: ALL volunteer opportunities this school year are dependent upon District 303's most current guidelines regarding school events and volunteers being allowed in school buildings.**
For more information about the PTO, please contact Kristy McKnight, Principal, or any of our current PTO Board nominees: Rebecca Adams, Ashley Holdsworth-Karkosch, Melissa Kline, Clare Merritt, and Shannon Puri. You may also email the current PTO Board at FersonCreekPTO@gmail.com .
