THANK YOU TO ALL THE FANTASTIC FOX STAFF!

Fox Teachers and staff rock!! We greatly appreciate all they have done to help create an amazing year in a time filled with changes and new ways of doing things.

We are grateful to have such caring staff for our students while they have been at school or learning from home!

SHOWING OUR APPRECIATION!

  • Fox PTA will be recognizing Fox teachers with a special day on May 5th!

  • A coffee cart from Pacific Perks will come to the school to make coffees and drinks for all staff in the morning.

  • Later in the day a custom ordered boxed lunch from Qdoba, will be delivered as a Cinco de Mayo lunch.

  • PTA will also be putting some fun yard decorations and banner up at the school to say thank you to all the Fox staff.

  • Join us in showing your appreciation! If you happen to be walking by the school feel free to take a picture of your student with the banner and email it directly to your student's teacher or any of the special Fox staff to say thank you!
