Calling all Friends of Fox! We are giving the Hanover greens a little TLC ahead of the winter and future construction - join us this Sunday, Nov 5 from 9a-12p in collaboration with RPS facilities team.
Work to be done: 1) For Fox Farm (kids’ garden in the rear of school): volunteers are needed to w**d paths, smother w**ds in raised beds with cardboard/leaves and chop down the larger w**ds on the perimeter. Letters and gutters have fallen off of shed and will need to be rehung. This is easier and less laborious than it sounds.
Materials needed:
•Tools like clippers, rake, w**d whacker, edgers, hammer + nails, etc
•Used cardboard boxes broken down to cover beds
•Leaves for beds
•A few lawn bags and trash bags
If anyone has experience with the irrigation system, shed locks, or other garden facets, please come out and help! We’ll be putting the garden to sleep for the Fall and hopefully visit again in the Spring! 2) For the front of the school, we'll be pulling w**ds, getting leaves up, taking care of the children's garden where the fish lives and overall trying to bring the space back to life. There will be a dumpster for clean up. 📷 Oil painting by Linda Hollett-Bazouzi, a Fox grad!

We can’t let what should have been our last day of the 2023 school year pass without sending a huge shoutout to the entire Fox Family for another wonderful year. Although we are faced with many challenges and it certainly didn’t end the way we wanted it to, we are so grateful for all the ways in which this year allowed our community to shine. This year we saw the return of choir and theatrix, the inspired efforts of the garden club, the wonderful performance by our step dance team at Strawberry Street, the camaraderie on the field and the sidelines at Fox Soccer, and so many other wonderful opportunities to come together and enjoy one another and the successes of our students.

Thank you to our teachers, support staff, and administrators. Thank you to our caregivers and our incredible students. Thank you to the alumni and the larger community that supports us. The gratitude for our community and all the people that make Fox what it is goes on and on.

Love, kindness, and respect for one another are more important now than ever. Thank you for being a part of this community and working towards our daily affirmation that FOX IS LOVE.

Happy Summer!!!!

We are still thinking about how amazing SSF was yesterday and have to give a HUGE shoutout to our Food Commitee! Big thanks to Ted Thoerig for smoking all that incredible BBQ, and to June Mena for managing so many pieces and parts. Also to Leigh Crandall for her master negotiating skills, Julia Righetti for braving Costco, and to all the Grillers, preppers, and servers (Sarah Tunner, Megan Kuhl, Nick Kindig, and MANY others).
