Students at Fall Creek Elementary (F.C.E.) were challenged by their Parent Teacher Organization (P.T.O.) to turn in an aggressive goal of Box Tops and Campbell’s “Labels for Education” UPCs for the school year of 2012-2013.  As a result of the students’ success, Principal Amy Jackson graciously agreed to let students convert her into a “human sundae” this week.

Principal Jackson was graciously covered in whipped cream, syrups, sprinkles and cherries in front of the student body.  The individual student per classroom that had turned in the most Box Tops did the honors of decorating her.  The leading classroom teachers per grade level whose classes had turned in the most Box Tops got to do the final touches.

“The kids were really looking forward to this event,” said F.C.E. Principal Amy Jackson.  “We strongly encourage our students to live by our ‘FISH Philosophy’ and they were able to see me live out one of the four components, ‘Play.’  It is a good thing to laugh and have fun!”

F.C.E.’s final count by the end of May was 44,977 Box Tops and 84,151 points for Campbell’s.  These numbers well exceeded the previous school year’s collection efforts.  Proceeds from these fundraisers benefit F.C.E. by providing classroom materials, special guest speakers, technology training and materials, field trip transportation, art supplies and so much more.

As part of the Hamilton Southeastern School System with around 800 kindergarten through 4th grade students, the mission of Fall Creek Elementary is to build a lasting foundation on which the educational, social, and emotional growth of our students can be achieved within a diverse society.  For more information on Fall Creek Elementary, please visit www.hse.k12.in.us/FCE, stop by 12131 Olio Road in Fishers or call 317-594-4180.
