Holiday Shop & Vendor Fair

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.

Box Tops . . . Delivery?

The next Box Top collection is coming up on Tuesday, October 29, but you can send them in anytime!

A couple of quick reminders/updates as we’re getting used to the new online submissions.

  • Don’t forget to assign your child’s classroom to your account so they get credit toward a lunch time popsicle party! Congratulations to Ms. Mickle’s class for September!
  • Do you use a grocery delivery/pick up service? You can still submit box tops! Just forward the receipt to receipts@boxtops4education.com. The receipt must be forwarded from the email address associated with your already-created Box Tops account, so they know which school to credit! 

Head over to our Box Tops page for more information and a step-by-step guide to using the app!

Student-Parent Survey for Federal Impact AID


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.
