FOX PTA NEWSFLASH APRIL 2020


DOROTHY FOX IS JUMPING TO EMBRACE CHANGE!

Hello Fox Families,

Fox PTA extends our best wishes and hopes that you are doing well and are all healthy! We are working towards embracing the changes we have been faced with through this crazy time! Our hearts and support go out to everyone as we know this is not easy.

Fox is resilient and we are strong together as a community, even when we can't be physically at school. We are very grateful to Fox teachers and staff for all their work to create a new distance learning program. We are also thankful for all the Fox families who continue to adapt and make the best of things for their children.

If you have any questions regarding PTA, please email us at ptadorothyfox@gmail.com

Thank you! Be Safe! Stay Healthy! Spread Kindness and Embrace the Change!

Best Wishes,

The Dorothy Fox PTA

PTA QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

We have been receiving a lot of questions and we want to provide some information even if we do not have a complete answer yet. Thank you for your understanding.

  • Yearbooks - How will I receive my yearbook?

We are working on this and will let you know as we get closer to June and hear what restrictions for groups and stay at home orders are in place. You will receive your yearbook one way or another though. We are excited to look back on all the good times!

  • PTA Events – Are all events canceled?

Yes. Since the school building and in person school has been canceled for the year, all PTA events have also been canceled. As we move into May and June, we will reassess if we can possibly make up any events in some capacity at a later date. This is a tough situation and we are all saddened by the cancellations of many loved school traditions and events. We are so glad that everyone is staying home and healthy though.

  • Supporting Teachers – Is the PTA helping?

The PTA has virtually met with Dr. Sork and are here to support our teachers! All requests will go through Dr. Sork and if there is a need we will work with Dr. Sork.

  • Clay Art Relief Tiles (Self Portraits) – Will I be able to get my student(s) tile?

Yes, the school will be working on a plan for this as restrictions allow. They turned out amazing and we are excited for students to bring them home to share with you when it is safe and possible.

  • Spring Pictures, Class Pictures, and Spirit Gear – How will I get these?

Again, we are working on a plan and will let you know as soon as we can! Thank you!

FOX NATURAL PLAYGROUND UPDATE

The PTA is continuing to work on the natural playground. Inspections were completed to clear the area of utilities and we continue to work with the school district and the City of Camas. Due to stay at home orders, production of playground equipment and shipping times have been greatly delayed.

Last month the SLT team took a poll of every class at Fox on which playground equipment they liked the best, the Parkour piece was by far the winner!

If you would like to help, we are looking for a used canoe that we can add for imaginative play and we are looking for families interested in building some benches (we can give you easy building plans). This is a great activity to build something with your kids! We will continue to keep our Fox community updated! www.dorothyfoxpta.com/fox-hollow-playground
