Fall Creek Student Credit Union starts tomorrow!

The Fall Creek Student Credit Union reopens for business tomorrow, October 7th. Come make a deposit!

The credit union will be open from 7:40 to 7:55 tomorrow, and every Wednesday of the school year  (That’s 33 Wednesdays!).

The goal of the credit union is to help your students develop a regular savings habit. The focus is not on how much you save, but on how often. Making a deposit of even a penny or nickel per week can start to add up, and it develops good habits that last a lifetime.

We will have various promotions throughout the year to help motivate you to save. Like last year, we will be rewarding depositers who make it to nearly every single credit union of the year! 

If you already have an an account with Alternatives Federal Credit Union (AFCU), please bring your savings book tomorrow. We will have new envelopes. If you have a new account membership packet, then that can be used as your first deposit. You can also sign up for a new account if you don’t have one and still make your first deposit tomorrow.

Please note, we are not a full service bank - we cannot make change, so please bring the exact amount that you want to deposit.  Check in any amoutn are OK.  If you have a lot of change, we have coin rolls that you are welcome to use.

Volunteer to help in an Enrichment class!

Enrichment starts tomorrow.

It’s not too late to volunteer for an Enrichment class!  

Volunteers get one free class for their kids.

We especially need a volunteer in the Puppets class which meets on Wednesdays and the Mixed Media Mania class which meets on Thursdays.

Please contact Varya@twcny.rr.com with any questions.

Getting excited about the credit union!

The Fall Creek Student Credit Union starts this Wednesday, October 7th, and will be held every Wednesday morning in the gym, from 7:40 - 7:55 a.m. Help your students start a weekly savings habit. Students are encouraged to make a deposit each week no matter how small, even a penny!

To participate in the credit union, your student needs to have a savings account at Alternatives Federal Credit Union. If your student does not yet have an account and wants to open one, there will be new account packets available at the credit union, on Wednesday mornings, or by emailing Daniel Sheehan - ds269@cornell.edu

We also have a new credit union envelope ready for each child who already has a credit union account. These are the envelopes with all the Fall Creek credit union dates for this school year.  We will start handing them out at this week’s credit union. You just need to bring in your savings book. (Now’s a good time to go looking for those savings books, since you may not have used yours since June!)

Remember, the important thing is not how much you save, but how often. No amount is too small. Try to make a deposit every week.

Enrichment update - and any Jewelry Making teachers out there?

Enrichment registration continues through Friday with a table set up from 7:40 - 8:00.

Would anyone like to teach a Jewelry making class on Thursdays?

There is a long enough waiting list for the Jewelry class that if we could find another teacher we could offer two sections.   Anyone interested?  Contact Varya@twcny.rr.com

All the other classes are still open.

Please see the PTA website or get in touch with Varya@twcny.rr.com with any questions.

Curriculum Night

Fall Creek Parents!
Curriculum night is this Wednesday, September 30. The K-2 session is from 5:45-6:30, and the 3-5 session is from 6:40-7:25.
I am looking for a few people to help me help check children in to childcare. The crazy times will be from 5:30-5:45 and then again from 6:30-6:40. The time commitment is small, but it really would make things move along more quickly if I had a couple of extra people for each shift. You can still attend the session/sessions. Please contact me at cevansithaca@gmail.com if you can lend a few minutes to the cause.

Picture Day is Friday, October 23!

Picture Day is Friday, October 23!


One of our smiliest days is coming up—Picture Day. Your child’s order form will come home in the Thursday folder, about a week or two before.  

Order online (there will be a code on the form) or send in the form on picture day.


Retake Day is December 4.


*We need parent volunteers!

I’m looking for one parent per class – a familiar face for the kids.  You will help bring the kids from their class to the library, comb flyaways, and bring out their smiles.  It only takes 30 minutes!


I will have a schedule soon…If you can help please contact me!

Call Christina King with any ?s at 398-0507 or by email at christina.t.king@gmail.com.
