FOX PTA NEWSFLASH NOVEMBER 2020


HAPPY NOVEMBER FOX FAMILIES!

FOX NATURAL PLAYGROUND UPDATE

The natural playground is coming along! The Parkour playground equipment has been installed! Next step is adding in the logs and stumps! The goal is to have the project finished this month, as a reminder the playground is currently closed.

This amazing PTA Legacy Project will be enjoyed for many years to come!

It has also been in the works for many years, with lots of people contributing along the way. We would like to thank all the PTA Board Members and PTA Members from the past few years who voted "yes" on this project and who made steps towards it success! Thank you to Fox SLT and Fox students who helped in early planning and voting. Thank you to Fox parents and staff for their continued support and donations to make this happen!

Thank you to the volunteers, Fox PTA and Fox staff, Camas School District staff, and many others, who have graciously given their time to help install the natural playground, offered their talented skills, assisted with planning and permitting! We appreciate you! Many hours have gone into this so Fox students can come back to school with an exciting playground addition! We will have more details coming soon.

Shout out to last week's onsite volunteers!

Fox parents: Allison Abernethy, Trisha & Shawn Golding, Tammy Speer, Krysti Araque, Kary Wilson, and Brian Downum.

Fox staff: Dr. Sork and Mr Baxter. Along with our wonderful custodians Mr. Tim and Katrina Bergeson!

-Thank you to those who offered to help out, but were unable to due to other obligations or scheduling. Your kind offers of support are greatly appreciated!

Fox Shoe Drive Fundraiser with Funds2Orgs

11/2/2020 - 1/31/2021

Let's all come TOGETHER to support OTHERS,

to help the ENVIRONMENT,

and raise funds for DOROTHY FOX!

Please start saving your gently worn, used, and new shoes! We will begin collections on November 2nd.

Key Benefits:

  • Dorothy Fox connects with the community to raise funds for the school without any selling involved and helps to give back to others through the program.

  • Shoes are repurposed in a socially responsible fundraiser and are re-purposed in a developing nation. Repurposing shoes helps the environment!

  • Shoes collected ultimately become inventory and an economic lifeline for micro-entrepreneurs in developing countries who sell the shoes in their small businesses for a living wage.

  • The shoe drive fundraising company also provides American jobs for people living in the United States.
