VIPS Tips for 2019-2020

9/10/2019 7:48 pm

As we all adjust to the back-to-school routine here are some important tips and reminders! 


Transportation Changes

All transportation changes must be made before 3:40 pm. 


Lunch Visitors

Lunch visitors are welcome beginning September 9th. Check-in at the front desk and get a visitor's name tag. Sit with your child at the designated "Visitor's Table". Please make sure you get a new sticker if you are volunteering in a different area such as the library or classrooms before or after lunch with your student.  Be prepared to show your ID every time you sign in at the front desk. 


Classroom Parties

We have two classroom parties this school year. Holiday Party on Friday, December 20th and an End of Year Party on Thursday, May 28th. Both will be from 2-2:45pm. Prior to the Holiday Party, you will be asked to make a one-time donation $10 per child towards Classroom Parties. This $10 will help PTO purchase food and craft supplies for each party. Homeroom parents will need to arrive at 1:30pm for set up.



There are many opportunities to volunteer. Make sure to fill out the volunteer opportunity form and let us know what areas you are interested in helping out. Also, please read through our Volunteer Guidelines

Spirit Nights

Our next Spirit Night is on Wednesday, September 25th at Spring Creek Barbecue from 5 pm till 9 pm. 



We hold two large fundraisers each year. We are currently in the middle of the Otis Spunkmeyer Fundraiser and orders are due on September 18th. 


Our Spring Fundraiser is the Boosterthon Fun Run that kicks off on February 18th and the Fun Run takes place on Thursday, February 27th. 


Spirit Shop & Spirit Wear

Spirit Shop is open on the 1st Friday of each month beginning October 4th (January is the 2nd Friday) during all lunches. This is an opportunity for the students to purchase pencils, erasers, slime and other small toys that range in price from $0.25 to $1.50. The Spirit Shop does not take Soar Feathers. We love having parents volunteer for the Spirit Shop. We will have a sign up if you are interested in helping out. 


You can get current Spirit Wear online through our Online Spirit Shop. We also have Farney Hoodies on Pre-Sale through September 15th. Hoodies can be ordered using this link:



Yearbooks are currently on sale. Visit the YearBook Section of our website for ordering information and information on how to submit pictures.
