Tickets Now On Sale for the Winter FUNdraiser!!!

Ladies and Gentlemen, children of all ages!


Please join us on Sunday January 22nd at 1:00pm and 3:00pm at the Kulp Auditorium, Ithaca High School, for a Celestial, Glittery, Swanky, Star Spangled, Animal Free Circus Wunderbar! Tickets are $6 in advance and $10 at the door until they are sold out.

Join Hilby, aka the Skinny German Juggle Boy, and friends as they bring you thrills, joy, and laughter, and keep you on the edge of your seat! 


While fundraising was (and continues to be) the motivator for the event, it has become so much more!  It’s about silliness, and fun, and about community.  Families from every corner of Ithaca come together for a great cause – helping to raise money to support special programming and experiences for our kids. And, because we don’t want anyone to miss out on this fabulous experience due to financial hardship, we have made over 400 scholarship tickets available, which may be obtained by request through each of the elementary schools.

Student Credit Union #14

Fall Creek Student Credit Union - tomorrow, January 18th: 7:40-7:55

 

Week #14 of the student credit union is open tomorrow morning, back in the gym, from 7:40 to 7:55.  We have adjusted the schedules for the student tellers and will have up to 8 students tellers each week.  This should make shorter lines and a quicker process.

 

Remember, a deposit can be as little as $0.01.  The goal is to keep making deposits and building good savings habits.

 

You can open an account and start saving any time of the year.  If you have any questions please contact:

Fall Creek teachers receive 5 IPEI Grants!

We are pleased to announce that Fall Creek received five grants from Ithaca Public Education Initiative (IPEI) during its first round of applications for this academic calendar!

The first was awarded to Lydia Dolch for her proposal, “Accessing Art.” Students across grade levels study works from the permanent collection at the Herbert F. Johnson Museum with Carol Hockett and bring them to life for people in the community with special needs.

The second grant will be used by Jonathan Keefner to create the Modern Music Classroom which will introduce JamHub’s as a collaborative and progressive way of rehearsing and recording an electronic based ensemble.

The third is for, “From Seed to Table,” proposed by Robert Novick. Through the direction and instruction of Novick and experts from Cornell and TC3, students will learn about plant biology, the impact of environmental factors on food/ crop growth, and set up a functioning container vegetable garden in Fall Creek’s school greenhouse.

The fourth was awarded to Varya Siegel and Sarah Smith. They will use a multi-sensory approach to introduce three new social skills each month and support children in using these pro-social skills throughout the day. For each social skill targeted they will also send home a short, simple hand-out to families so they can follow through at home.

Finally, Catherine Hart was provided funding for her proposal, “Can You Build It? Using STEM Based Building Manipulative/Materials to Create Structures through Team Challenges.”

IPEI would love to hear about the student experience. If you would like to do a short write up about one of these grants that could be used for media purposes please contact ipei@ipei.org.

The next grant deadline is January 18, 2017!
