Tomorrow's Playground Party

Mother Nature is interfering with our Playground Party.  There is an 80-100% chance of rain tomorrow during the scheduled Playground Party.  If it is raining - the party will be cancelled…I’m sorry.  

If it’s not raining - please join us from 2-4pm on the front playground.

Thank you,

New Fall Creek Family is hoping for playdate

In the interest of serving the PTA’s mission of connecting parents, kids and teachers - here is a new Fall Creek Family looking to set up a play date on Tuesday, Sept 8th…

Dear all,

Our daughter Aisha is entering 3rd grade at Fall Creek this fall and we were wondering if students of any grade might want a playdate before school begins?  Just a suggestion, how about meeting at the play structure after Open House on 9/8 at 2pm?  Please feel free to email me at chj7@cornell.edu if you would like to get in touch.

Best, Chris.”

Thanks everyone,

Fay Cokeley, PTA president 2014-2016

Calling Fall Creek Gardeners - Butterfly Garden help needed!

Calling all Gardeners!  The Butterfly Garden needs a good amount of clean up work before school starts.  

I would be very grateful for some help weeding and putting rocks back in place.  This can be done on your own time - even just an hour would help immensely!  This needs to be done by Monday, September 7th.  

Please email Fay at fayerty@gmail.com if you are able to help. 

Thank you so much,

Fay Creagan Cokeley, PTA president and Butterfly Garden chair
