Changes to the School Supplies Policy for 2017-2018

Hello Fox Families,

In an effort to simplify the process of purchasing student supplies at the beginning of the school year, we are going to try a new system for 2017-18. We (Fox Elementary) are asking for a donation, with which we will purchase all needed items for your child or children's classroom before the start of next year. This means that you will not need to go out and purchase supplies from a grade-level supply list this summer, or provide items from a supplementary classroom list or individual teacher "wish list" when we start back to school in the Fall. Simply donate $50 per student attending Fox this coming fall, and we will do the rest. 

We are hoping that this will alleviate multiple trips to the store for all of our families and provide the specific materials each teacher and student will need for his or her particular class. Please print the attached form and drop it off at the office or give to your classroom teacher during the first week of school, if you did not already make your donation prior to the end of the previous school year.

If you have any questions please let us know and as always thank you for your support of Fox Elementary.
