FOX PTA NEWSFLASH SEPTEMBER 2020

August 29, 2020

WELCOME BACK FOX FAMILIES!

 

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year from the Fox PTA!  We hope everyone had a wonderful summer!

 

We are looking forward to another great year supporting our students and school.  We realize things will feel a little different with distanced learning, but even though we are physically apart, we are always a close Fox community at heart!

FOX NATURAL PLAYGROUND UPDATE

 

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

 

AUGER NEEDED: We are looking for anyone who has an auger, who might be interested in coming to dig some 18" holes for stumps to go in.

 

Thank you for your support and donations!

PAYBACK BOOK FUNDRAISER

9/1 - 9/23

 

Please consider helping raise funds for Fox with our annual Payback Coupon Book Fundraiser!  An information packet will come home in your red folder you will receive at the Great Bag Pickup! Payback books are full of LOCAL savings for shopping, dining, attractions, and more!

 

ORDERS DUE 9/23

Payback Coupon Books sell for ONLY $20! Half of the proceeds from each book goes back to benefit our school! 

 

ORDER ONLINE: PLEASE GO TO www.dorothyfoxpta.com/payback-books TO ORDER YOUR BOOKS.

 

STUDENT REWARDS: A $5 Amazon gift card will be awarded for every five books sold by each student, no limit on gift cards earned.  For your child to be eligible for prizes, we must have all money turned in online and/or at the school by the last day of the sale.

 

DELIVERY: After the fundraiser is closed, we will have a scheduled day for Fox Families to pick up their books.  Then you can distribute the Payback books to your list of people who you sold to. 

 

NEW: Due to remote school starting, things will be a little different this year.  The main difference you will see is that your student WILL NOT be sent home a sample book and collection envelope like in past years.  Even though you will not be able to physically flip through the Payback book this year, please know there is still great savings with coupons from all types of businesses in our local area.  Please refer to your flyer to see a list of some of the local businesses included.

FOX GARDEN

 

Mammoth sunflowers along with rainbow, pizza, and three sister gardens are a few that our kids have grown over the last six years at Fox.

 

While gardening opportunities may look different at Fox this fall, some will still be the same. The garden is in need of some maintenance and planning for the future.

 

Let’s join together and ensure our Foxes and future Foxes continue to have their very own garden where they can play and learn while growing fruits, veggies, and friendships for many years to come!

 

Garden Volunteers Needed: Interested in joining our volunteer school garden committee or have any questions, please contact Lianne Lauda, PTA School Garden Chair, liannedfepta@hotmail.com.
