Happy May/June Fox Trail Families,
Where has this year gone? We cannot believe that we are already nearing the end of another school year. We have so many things to be proud of this year and look forward to continuing that growth throughout next year as well!
April was Autism Awareness Month. We celebrated school-wide on April 26th. Throughout the month our students and teachers created artwork to show our “helping hands”, we had one of our students attend and speak at a school board meeting, and some of our students in our autism cluster educate others on what autism means.
At the end of April we hosted our Rounding Up Future Leaders Program (Kindergarten Round Up). This event was led by our student leaders with the help from our staff and student Lighthouse Teams. We want to thank everyone involved in creating and facilitating this event! Our students did a fabulous job and we can’t wait to welcome our new families to Fox Trail next year!
At the beginning of May we will be concluding our “testing season”. Please see the “What’s Happening” section of our newsletter to see when each grade level will be completing their end of year assessments. Please always remember that our students are more than a test score. We know how much pressure each student, staff member, and parent feels for our students to be successful on these assessments, but more importantly, we want our students to feel special, respected, and loved. We have now been a Leader in Me School for almost three years and continue to work hard on shaping future leaders and focusing on the whole child. As part of our Leader in Me grant we monitor the impact that this process has on our students, staff, and community. If you have not done so, please visit the link below to take a short survey pertaining to The Leader in Me. We currently only have 91 of parents that have completed this survey and we need at least 247 to ensure our feedback is valid.
We have a lot of exciting events happening in May. Please check out the “What’s Happening” section of the newsletter for important dates including: the PTSA Spring Dance, our final SAC and SAF meetings, Barnes and Noble Family Night, Spring Concert, Awards Ceremonies, 5th grade end-of-year events, and Staff Appreciation Week.
As we close out the final days of the 2018-19 school year we want to thank you for always being supportive of our school. As a district we have faced and overcome many adversities this year. As always, our doors are open and we welcome any feedback you have for us moving into the 2019-20 school year. We wish you a fabulous summer break and be on the lookout for Parent Link emails and phone calls throughout the summer to keep you up-to-date on any pertinent information. Happy Summer!
Your Lead Learners,
Ms. Lynn Burgess, Principal
Mrs. Suzanne Nelson and Mrs. Jennifer McGreevy, Assistant Principals
