    PBIS Focus for the Month

    The Cool Tool for the month of May is Respect! This last Cool Tool of the school year is focused on students showing respect to everyone they interact throughout the school day. This includes peers, teachers, librarians, secretaries, substitutes, lunch supervisors, and so on! Respect means that you accept somebody for who they are, even when they’re different from you or you don’t agree with them. Receiving respect from others is important because it helps us to feel safe and to express ourselves.

    MAP testing for all grade levels will begin Monday, May 6th and be completed by May 17th.  You child’s teacher will be sure to share the specific dates and times.

    Registration for 2019/2020 School Year

    Registration for the 2019/2020 year will be available through the parent portal starting Monday, April 1, 2019.

    If you do not have a parent portal account, you should have received an email on March 15 with instructions and a link to do so.

    Beginning this year, the district is contracting with a third-party vendor to automatically verify student address information. If your residency is verified electronically, you will not need to submit any additional paperwork to certify that you live within the district’s boundaries. To verify residency, the vendor will use a parent’s name and address to crosscheck the information against electronic databases from other organizations, such as utility companies.

    We anticipate most addresses will be verified electronically. If we cannot verify your address electronically, we will send you a letter detailing what additional information you will need to provide in order to register your child for the upcoming school year.

    Dear Fox community,

    We had a great day at Anne Fox!  The students participated in an Escape Room activity.  Each classroom had to complete a puzzle to find the code that would “unlock” them from their classroom.  Once they escaped (luckily we all made it!) the students came down to the gym.  Each grade level used their code to unlock the master locks.  When the chest was free from the constraints we learned that we are going to have a spirit week the week we return from spring break!  Our state testing for grades 3-6 is coming up the week of April 8th and we want to get our students movtivated!  Please see the below schedule:

    Monday: 80’s Day (we will rock this test)

    Tuesday: No School

    Wednesday: Sports Wear (teachers are your biggest fans)

    Thursday: Twinning Day (double check your work)

    Friday: PJ Day (relax and do your best)

    We hope you have a wonderful spring break.  See you April 1st!

    Drop and Go: November 26, 2018 – March 22, 2019

    Drop and Go

    Drop and Go begins after Thanksgiving break and ends at spring break.  Drop and go is a safe and systematic process for parents to drop children off during arrival time.  The main lot will be open for parents to drop-off students along the sidewalk in front of the school.  Please see below for important safety details:

    • Parents stay in car
    • Students exit at the front door (DO NOT exit car until you are in front of school)
    • Must exit passenger side
    • Exit parking lot immediately following the car in front of you (do not pass car in front of you)
    • When entering the parking lot follow the one way sign ALWAYS
    • Below zero enter front door otherwise students walk to their classroom lines
    • Drop and go begins at 8:20
    • Please remember these guidelines are in place for the safety of the children.
    • PLEASE remember you cannot pass a bus with its stop sign out.  This is very important!!
    • As a help to our teachers please do not wait in parking spaces as staff are finding it difficult to find a spot in the lot on many mornings.

    Thank you for helping to make our drop and go process smooth and safe for all.
