PTA is very excited to announce that part 1 of the natural playground installation is still planned for August!  We will continue to monitor safety and social distancing guidelines and adjust if needed. 

 

Thank you for your support and donations! 

We are still looking for a boat or canoe to incorporate in if anyone has one they would like to donate.  ptadorothyfox@gmail.com

FOX RETIREES

Mrs. Duley, Mrs. Gilronan, Mrs. Pierce

 

We have a heavy heart to see three of our wonderful Fox Staff retire this year, but we wish them all the very best in their new chapter!  We were very blessed to have them at Fox and in the Camas School District for so many years!  In honor of their years of dedication, the PTA has put up a Fence Art at the school. 

 

Thank you for leaving your FOX PAW PRINTS in the HEARTS of so many throughout the years!  We will miss you all!

5th GRADE DRIVE THROUGH CELEBRATION!

5TH GRADE YEARBOOK & SPRING/CLASS PICTURE PICKUP

6/17/2020

 

5TH GRADERS: We will be honoring our 5th graders with a special drive through celebration including a photo opportunity with their homeroom teacher and a bag with some special treats along with their 5th grade shirt!

 

5th Grade only by Last Name in the bus lane, area B in front of the school:

  • 12:00 - 12:30: Last Name A – F

  • 12:30 - 1:00:   Last Name G – L

  • 1:00 - 1:30:     Last Name M – R

Fox Staff and PTA have been getting 5th grade bags all ready!

 

Additional Info:

 

PROCEDURE:  Please enter the bus lane/front parking lot and bring a piece of paper with your 5th grade student's FULL NAME clearly written on it to help our runners quickly locate your items.

Volunteers will bring your bag to your car wearing masks and gloves. The driveway will be lined with special posters. A copy of your student’s poster will be in their bag for you to take a picture with at home. Parents are encouraged to decorate their cars to celebrate their students!

 

YOUNGER SIBLINGS: Yearbooks and spring pictures (if purchased) for younger siblings will be included in the 5th Grader’s bag so families do not have to make a 2nd trip.

 

PICTURES WITH HOMEROOM TEACHER: Next, pull forward to have a picture taken with your child’s homeroom teacher. Please have students ready to smile and wave on the passenger/right side of the car. Homeroom teachers will (while maintaining 6’ social distance) step up to the car and a PTA volunteer will take a picture. Pictures will be both emailed and mailed to you. Please do not get out of your vehicle so things can move safely and efficiently.

 

Please try to attend during your time slot to help with traffic and congestion. However, if your family is unavailable during the suggested time, we will accommodate you within the 12:00-2:00 time slot.

 

In order for us to safely celebrate the Class of 2027, we need to follow specific guidelines and expectations laid out by the State of Washington:

  • SAFE AND SWIFT: Students and family members will NOT be able to get out of your vehicles.

  • No one who is sick should participate. It is so important that we all take the necessary precautions to protect both students and staff.

  • Staff will be stationed along the Bus Lane to wave and celebrate 5th graders.

  • Please DO NOT pull ahead of the vehicle in front of you but rather follow through the procession.

LAST DAY OF SCHOOL DRIVE THROUGH CELEBRATION

HAWAIIAN THEME

The surf is up and the school year is almost over at Dorothy Fox! So break out the HAWAIIAN clothes and HULA your way to the last day of school for a reverse parade drive through end of the year celebration on Sierra Street!  

 

JOIN THE FUN: Please remember to stay in your car, wave and say Aloha to the Fox Staff, decorate your car if you want, and wear your Hawaiian clothes!

 

PLEASE NOTE: Due to traffic, safety, and social distancing, please do not stop during the drive through celebration or pass other cars.

Fox Families are invited to enter the street from the crosswalk at 28th/Sierra and slowly drive past staff to wave and say Aloha!

 

Please do not U-Turn at the end but plan to turn right at NW 23rd Avenue past the park to keep traffic moving along.

 

If a student walks or rides bike, we need you stay on the opposite sidewalk and please maintain 6 foot distant between all others outside your family. Being in a car is preferred.
