Dear Fox Run Families,

Highlights of Last Week at Fox Run School:

This is probably one of the best times of the school year at Fox Run Elementary!  We held our annual 1st Grade Thanksgiving Play.  A huge special thanks to Ms. Kelley and the 1st grade teachers - Mrs. Dominick, Mrs. Broad, Mrs. Martinez, and Mrs. Botelho, along with Mr. Kodel, Mrs. Guerra, our hardworking paraprofessionals and custodians.  The performance was spectacular and the brunch that was held afterwards in the cafeteria was filled with lots of food, love, and joy.  It was truly an event to be thankful for!

Important Dates for the Upcoming Week:

Wednesday 11/22: 2 Hour Early Dismissal 12:50 pm

Friendly Reminders:

Finally, parents please be mindful of the following:

• Traffic patterns: We ask you to adhere to traffic patterns both during AM drop-off and PM pick-up. These routines have been carefully planned out to ensure the safety of all. Please do not enter the one-way areas illegally, park in the fire lane or handicap parking spaces, make a U-turn in the crosswalk, or speak on your cell phones while driving on school grounds. I know that we all have places to be and it never seems like there is enough time in the day to get to everywhere we need to, but safety must come first! I truly appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter.

Early Dismissal: We realize that from time to time, it may be necessary for you to pick up your child prior to dismissal time. If so, a dated note must be sent to the classroom teacher the morning of the desired early dismissal, advising the school of the time your child is to be dismissed and the reason for the dismissal. Classroom instruction time is paramount to your child’s educational program. Therefore, requests for early dismissal should be kept to a minimum as they are disruptive to both your child and to his/her class, (please refer to “School Procedures” of your parent handbook for details). Also, if you wish to share information with your child’s teacher or request a call, kindly leave a note for the teacher with the main office and the teacher will get back to you. Particularly, in the morning as routines are being implemented and minimal disruptions are essential.

     THANK YOU for all of your support and cooperation as I continue to offer my commitment to all of the children and staff of Fox Run School. I invite you to contact your child’s teacher or me with questions at 203-899-2860.
