Fox Elementary School celebrated its 50th anniversary on May 12. During a special all-school assembly organized by the Fox PTA everyone sang the school song, Hanover Park Mayor Rod Craig shared historical school information, and each grade added an item to a time capsule that will be opened in 25 years. Everyone then headed out to the blacktop for a 50th anniversary aerial photo taken with help from the Hanover Park Fire Department. Jennifer Zimmerman’s class had diagrammed where everyone would need to stand for the picture.

We are excited to begin PARCC testing with another opportunity for our intermediate students to show what they know! Our 5th grade students will be taking the Illinois Science Assessment on Wednesday, April 12. Students in grades 3-6 will test literacy and math between April 17-28.
During our testing sessions, the building will be silent to ensure that all students can focus and give their full effort. You can help your student do his/her best on the test by:
making sure, if possible, that your student attends school on the days of testing
making sure your student gets a good night’s sleep the night before testing
providing a nutritional breakfast on the mornings of testing
reminding your student to ask the teacher questions if he/she does not understand the test direction
letting your child know that you are confident in his/her ability to do his/her best
advising your child not to worry about the test – just to do the best he/she can
World’s Finest Chocolate is here and the orders will be sent home with your child on Monday, April 10th. If you need other arrangements made, please call the school office at 630-736-3500.
