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.
