FOX TEACHER/STAFF FAVORITE THINGS

 

We love all the Fox Staff!  We greatly appreciate all that they do and wanted a way to get to know them and what they like a little more. For the last few years a request we have received from parents is to have teacher/staff “favorite things” surveys.  This year, Rachelle (our Staff Appreciation Chair) helped accomplish this!

 

Fox staff filled out fun optional surveys and we now have them up on our website. 

It is password protected to ensure automated programs can’t access it.
