The Decorah Elementary Family, Educator, and Community Organization (FEC) recently hosted a Spell-a-thon fundraiser that raised over $36,000 for Decorah early childhood and elementary buildings.  This money will go towards funding classroom materials, field trips, guest visitors, classroom and library books, family events, and teacher appreciation festivities.

The FEC runs the Scholastic Book Fair, creates the Elementary yearbook, and hosts additional family events including the Back-to-School Pool Party, Winter Dance Party, Playdate in the Park, and end of year ice cream party at Sugar Bowl.

FEC President Shanna Putnam Dibble stated, “We are extremely grateful for the FEC volunteers who made this fundraiser possible and to all of our families and community members who made it a success.  These funds play a crucial role in supporting our efforts to increase student engagement while providing access to high quality learning experiences.”

The FEC is looking for new members to serve on the committee or to volunteer at events throughout the 2024-2025 school year.  Follow the FEC on Facebook or contact Shanna Putnam Dibble at to learn more.
