    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!

    PTA SUMMER SCHOLARSHIP

    As part of its commitment to life-long learning, the Schaumburg Township Council of PTA’s (STC) offers scholarships for summer programs/camps to District 54 students currently in Kindergarten through 7th grade who wish to broaden their education, talents, and experiences.

    Applicants must have a parent/guardian that is a current PTA member. The due date is Monday, April 1st. I have included the cover letter and application documents. To apply online, click the link https://pta.sd54.org/2019/02/27/elementary-scholarship-applications-available/  It’s hard to believe , but summer will be here before we know it.

    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.

    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.

    PBIS

    The Cool Tool for the month of March is Safety First! This Cool Tool focuses on reinforcing all the ways that students can behave safely during arrival, dismissal, and throughout the school day. Help your child practice this Cool Tool at home by asking the following questions:

    • How can you be safe in the parking lot?
    • Why is it important to use the sidewalk?
    • After dismissal, should you wait around the building or head right home?

    Principal’s Message February 1, 2019

    Hello Anne Fox Community,

    This has certainly been a week that we will not forget.  Thank you for your flexibility with school being canceled in order to ensure that all of our students, families and staff were safe during the extreme weather.  We look forward to seeing your children on Monday.

    PBIS Update

    As a reminder PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports.  The PBIS Cool Tool for the month of February is Be a Problem Solver. This Cool Tool encourages students to be active problem solvers throughout the day. Students face problems, big or small, every day and the purpose of this Cool Tool is to teach students strategies on how to find a solution.

    Drop and Go

    To keep the flow of our drop and go system moving please try to arrive at school between 8:25-8:30 to avoid being stuck behind busses.  We cannot allow cars to pass busses and this backs up the flow of traffic. Thank you.

    Kindergarten Registration

    On Wednesday, February 6 we will be hosting Kindergarten Registration.  Kindergarten Registration is intended for any incoming Fox-based kindergarteners for the 2019-2020 school year.  Registration will take place at Fox School from 9:00-11:00AM and 5:00-7:00PM.
