Dear Fox Families,

March is HAPPINESS MONTH at Anne Fox School and across School District 54. To help us spread happiness into our community, please consider supporting our Sock-A-Thon. Our school will be collecting new socks to donate to our very own D54 Community Closet. Classrooms that donate the most socks will have a special PE class celebration. This is just one way to spread happiness. During this month our Happiness Team has planned many activities to exercise the happiness habits.

As a reminder, all families are required to prove that they live within District 54 boundaries every year. If we are unable to verify your residency electronically, you will receive a letter by U.S. mail, which will list the residency documents you can provide to the school office to complete your registration.

You are also able to pay the $50 consumable fee for 2020-21, as well as purchase milk and sign up for the instructional device insurance through the portal.  If you believe you will qualify for the Free Lunch Program in the 2020-21 school year, and therefore will receive a fee waiver, do not pay the consumable material fee now. Applications will be available in August for the Free Lunch Program.

Information about busing will be mailed the first week in June. Should you have any questions, please our office. Thank you for your cooperation.
