This Week at Fox
Regular school schedule:
Fox PTA has partnered up with Apex Fun Run, to bring a new, dynamic fundraising program to our school. The Apex program will be teaching leadership skills and fitness to our students using in-class lessons, as we raise pledges to help Fox School. We will kick off our two-week program with an all school Pep Rally on Thursday, September 29th at 8:45am in the middle room. Parents are encouraged and welcome to attend!
During the Apex Fox Trot, students will be challenged to get pledges for the laps they will run on October 13th to help Fox school.
On Sunday October 2, Save the Music will take place at Twin Pines Park. This is a great event that supports the music program, librarians, reading specialists, science specialists, technology, and other district programs. Also, at 11:00 am there will be a 4th grade recorder performance that will include students from all over the district, and 4th graders that perform will get in for free!
Earlier this spring, our Board of Trustees authorized a new volunteer clearance process, which will improve student safety, reduce volunteer paperwork, and keep our practices in line with other neighboring districts, including the Sequoia Union High School District. Importantly, volunteers who may be unsupervised with students (field trip chaperones, afterschool tutoring and clubs, playground supervision, book fair, etc.) will be required to have fingerprint clearance through the California Department of Justice and the FBI. Fortunately, volunteers will only need to go through the clearance process once for their entire stay in our school district!
Thanks to the partnership of our seven school PTAs, all volunteers who go through the fingerprint process by September 30, 2016, will do so at the District's expense. You can complete the volunteer form online, and if you choose to be cleared for volunteer roles that require fingerprinting, you can print the necessary Live Scan fingerprint form and take it to a designated local vendor during business hours (Mon-Sat).
Thank you for participating in this new process. We're excited that this new approach will enhance student safety while doing away with annual volunteer clearance processes.
Please do not procrastinate. Starting with the 2016-17 school year, all volunteers must complete this process before they are allowed to volunteer. To begin the clearance process, please go to the District's volunteer webpage.
