    3rd graders completed a “compliment” activity during SEL time to spread kindness to their peers.
    Look at those smiles!

    Dear Anne Fox Community,
    It has been another great week of learning at Anne Fox School. All of our students participated in Veteran’s Day activities planned by their AMAZING teachers. If you haven’t already, take a moment to ask your child how they took time to recognize Veterans this past week. Wednesday was “Kindness Day” and many students and staff members took this opportunity to thank each other for all they do to make our school so great…and IT IS PRETTY GREAT! Lastly, Addams JH paid a visit to our 6th grade students. During the visit, 6th grade students learned about what it’s like to be a student there and some of the options they can pick for electives. In December, 6th grade teachers will be distributing elective information for families to look over together–more to come.

    We are well aware that winter weather is upon us. With the change in temperature, we wanted to share a few friendly reminders with you regarding arrival, dismissal and the parking lot. Please know that all of our decisions around inclement weather are based around the students’ safety.

    • Arrival: Students can enter the building starting at 8:25 AM.
    • ​​​​​​​Parking Lot:
      • The parking lot is closed in the morning from 8:20-8:40 and again in the afternoon from 2:55-3:10.
      • Due to the limited number of parking spots for staff we encourage parents to refrain from parking in the lot during these times.
      • To ensure our bus riders are safe we ask that there are no moving cars in the parking lot when the lot is closed.
      • Parents picking up their children at dismissal need to utilize the sidewalks.  We cannot have anyone walking through the parking lot for safety reasons.
      • Fox staff will be enforcing these guidelines before and after school.
    • ​​​​​​​Drop and Go: Drop and Go begins after Thanksgiving break and end at spring break. Drop and Go is a safe and systematic process for parents to drop children off during arrival time. The main parking lot will be open for parents to drop-off students along the sidewalk in front of the school. We will provide more specific information next week.

     

    Title I Night
    Please save the date! Wednesday, December 4th will be our third annual Title I Night, here at Fox. Doors open at 5:45 with a presentation for parents beginning at 6:00. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about ways your student is supported in school through Title I Funding. Families will play educational games together, experience a STEM activity and perhaps even win raffle prizes! Each family will receive math and reading games to take home. Childcare will be provided. Hope to see you there!

    Dear Anne Fox Community,
    This week our Kindergarten students participated in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record. This event brings together millions of adults and children around the world each year to read the same book on the same day in order to raise awareness about the critical importance of early literacy. This year, Jumpstart is celebrated their 14th anniversary of Read for the Record on November 7, 2019, with the book Thank You, Omu! According to Jumpstart’s website, sharing high-quality picture books with young children is at the core of Jumpstart’s mission. Each year, Jumpstart selects a campaign book that fosters language and social-emotional development, honors the diversity in our world, has a strong narrative, and appeals to young children. That book is read across the country and around the world by adults and young readers on Read for the Record day.

    From your school nurse:

    This is a reminder to periodically examine your child’s head for lice. It is especially important to look behind the ears and at the nape of the neck, for crawling lice and nits.  While the transmission of lice in school is not likely, it is good to get in the habit of checking your child’s head regularly. Please feel free to call the school nurse if you have questions about how to make this practice part of your routine at home.

    Dear Anne Fox Community,

    We’d like to take this opportunity to tell you about an important time of the school day for our students. This time is called Literacy Acceleration and every student, kindergarten through sixth grade, has an additional 30 minutes of literacy instruction each day. During this time students are working on skills and strategies to deepen their understanding of texts as well as given many opportunities to write and respond to reading in creative ways. When you have a chance, ask your child about what THEY are learning in literacy acceleration. You will undoubtedly be amazed to hear about the high levels of learning taking place.

    STEM Challenge-What Can You Do With a PUMPKIN?

    Get your pumpkin ready for the Anne Fox Pumpkin Party! Bring your creation to school on Monday, October 28th and we will display them for all to see.  Will your creation be painted, carved or built into something magnificent?  We can’t wait to find out!

    National PTA Reflections Program

    News from the Nurse

    This is a reminder to periodically examine your child’s head for lice. It is especially important to look behind the ears and at the nape of the neck, for crawling lice and nits.  While the transmission of lice in school is not likely, it is good to get in the habit of checking your child’s head regularly. Please feel free to call the school nurse if you have questions about how to make this practice part of your routine at home.

    3th-6th Grade Parents/Guardians

    District 54 has launched a new Social-Emotional Learning Survey this year to provide insight into the social-emotional growth of our students.

    We are asking all students in grades 3-6, their parents/guardians and their classroom teachers to respond to the survey to provide their unique perspective. Your insight as a parent/guardian is essential in creating the most well rounded picture of your student’s strengths and opportunities for growth.

    You should receive a separate email containing survey access and directions. You can take the survey on your own or at school following your child’s conference next week. Chromebooks will be available for you to use. Our goal is to have 100% of families complete the survey.

     

    Book Fair

    The book fair will be open during parent/teacher conferences.  The students will also have an opportunity to visit the book fair with their class.  Classroom teachers will be sharing this date and time with the students.

    Next Friday, October 11th we do not have school, but you may want to consider taking your child to Chuck E Cheese.  By doing so you will be supporting the Anne Fox PTA and having fun with your child! See the attachment below for the details.

    Principal’s Message, September 23rd Hard Lock Down Drill

    Dear Fox Families,

    Today Anne Fox School practiced a Hard Lockdown Drill under the guidance of the Hanover Park Police Department. We hold at least two lockdown drills each year so that students and staff are familiar with the best practices should there ever be a crisis situation in the school. Today’s drill was an unannounced drill so that we could test our systems and evaluate how we respond.  Although the drill was a surprise, it was announced that it was a drill so the students were not frightened.

    After each drill, we reflect as a staff and with local emergency responders to determine if there are any procedures we might need to review with the staff and students. The police said they were impressed with how well our students and staff did during the drill.

    We obviously hope never to need to use these procedures, but it helps all involved to know that they have the skills needed to respond if an emergency should arise.

    The safety of your children is very important to our staff. Should you have any questions about this drill, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

    ​​​​​​​
