KINDERGARTEN PLAYDATE - THANK YOU!
The Kindergarten Playdate a Huge Success! A special thanks to all the Fox families that came to our kindergarten playdate last Saturday. Even though the weather was hot, we had a great turnout. Hopefully our new students got to meet some new friends and enjoy some time on the Fox playground. We know they enjoyed the popsicles! Our Fox principal, Dr.Sork, had the opportunity to meet and visit with families as well. She’s so excited for the new school year! We’ve had a number of parents ask about another playdate. We are looking at the calendar in September for possibilities and will update you.
