School Overview

Communication and building relationships with families is key to the success of all Fox Run Elementary students. We take pride in embracing and celebrating our differences and recognizing the wide variety of diverse cultures and global backgrounds of our family community.

With the support of the Family Resource Center, we are able to support families both in our school as well as those in the broader community. Throughout the year, various cultures and traditions are highlighted to engage families and celebrate traditions such as the annual Hispanic Heritage Month.

The school's Family Resource Center also offers a wide variety of programs that students can access such as chess, tennis, book clubs, cooking, running club, art through recycling and more.

The Fox Run community has important and unique features. We offer a co-taught ICT program which supports neurodiverse learners who are educated alongside their general education peers. Fox Run has fully implemented this co-taught model in select classrooms.

PINE, Program for Inclusion and Neurodiversity Education, is a whole-school mindset in which the whole school community is educated, supported and coached on neurodiversity and the importance of inclusion for all through our continued partnership with New York University.

In addition, Fox Run has adopted a new learning pathway and is transitioning into a Digital Media-focused school. In partnership with CT State Community College Norwalk, digital media is embedded into our daily instruction. Our Library Media Specialist will include broadcasting, podcasts and project-based learning. Student created videos and simulations are a few examples of resources we use to engage and educate in our classrooms. CT State Community College Norwalk broadcasting students will assist in the introduction and implementation throughout the year.

To invigorate our school culture, initiatives have been established to foster a cohesive community through daily social-emotional teaching. Additional connections for all our learners are created through adult-student as well as peer partnerships.

Our partnership with After the Bell (ATB) provides academically rich before- and after-school experiences for students. We implemented a grant-funded after-school program through The Carver Center that provides our fifth-grade students with academic enrichment and support.

Students engage in daily activities that support choice and encourage taking accountability for their learning. Our outdoor classroom and garden teaches students about healthy habits by studying plants and growing fresh produce. In addition, students oversaw the life cycle of a chicken, developing from egg to chick, and our outdoor learning spaces now include raising chickens and gathering fresh eggs daily.
