Your child’s teacher has identified the personal and community school supplies needed for a successful year. In cooperation with the Island Creek PTA, Campus Survival Kits has assembled a Kit of all necessary supplies for one low price! Avoid the stores and get all the supplies you need!
- You’ll receive a complete set of the exact supplies identified by your child’s teacher. All brands, sizes, colors and styles have been designated by your child’s teacher.
- Your child’s personal supplies will be delivered in a custom Island Creek Elementary drawstring backpack. (delivery will be made to the school in August. Alternate arrangements will be made in the case of extended distance learning)
- The items identified as community supplies (tissues, wipes, etc.) will be delivered directly to your child’s teacher for easy collection and storage.
- Your child’s personal supplies will be pre-labeled per the specific instructions provided by the teacher (if applicable).
- Based on the number of students who purchase a Kit, your child’s school will receive FREE refills on select items in January. That means the more parents who purchase a Kit now, the fewer requests parents will receive for more supplies during the year!

On Saturday, December 7, 2019, from 10 AM -1 PM, the cafeteria will be transformed into a shopping experience for even our youngest students.
This is an Island Creek favorite! Students, with the help of volunteers, will be able to purchase gifts and have them wrapped on site, keeping things a secret!
Hot cocoa and candy canes will be provided for all those who participate. This is not a fundraiser! The PTA earns no money – we pass on inexpensive prices to you as a service event. Bring your kiddos and help them learn about gift giving and budgeting.
We will also be holding a holiday market for adults in attendance. While your kids are shopping in the holiday shop, why not check off your gift list with items from local businesses?
Fliers and budget envelopes will be sent home closer to the event.

Beginning on October 21, FCPS will be asking all families to fill out a Student-Parent Survey for Federal Impact Aid. Returning this form is important because information from this survey results in an anticipated $3 million dollars in grant funds each year from the U.S. Department of Education. These funds are used to support all Fairfax County public schools and centers. For each school-aged child in your household, please complete, sign, date, and return the survey to your child’s school. If sections 1 and 2 of the survey do not apply to you, just check the box in Section 3. All forms must be signed, dated, and returned by October 30. All results are CONFIDENTIAL.
