Fox Trail Elementary Safety Leader Program
Fox Trail Safety Leaders have an important role at Fox Trail Elementary. The primary purpose of the program is to enhance the safety of our students. Safety Leader participation offers students an early opportunity to serve as a leader. It is a program that promotes: Citizenship, Leadership, Service, and Responsibility. A safety leader’s job is to model safety rules for students, assist students in safe transitions throughout the building, and to assist staff members with arrival and dismissal procedures.
Safety Leaders must be in fifth grade. Leaders are selected at the end of 4th grade through an application process with a recommendation from a previous teacher and parent permission. Consideration is based on student interest, academic achievement, commitment, sense of responsibility, and attitude toward others.
WFTNGoooooooooooood morning, Fox Trail!That get-ready-for-the-day call is heard each morning by students and faculty here at Fox Trail Elementary School. Fox Trail has an outstanding morning news show and team. Our live morning news show is one way our students get to perform and show off their awesome talents. Our very own tech-savvy fifth graders make up our Fox Trail News Team. Students apply at the end of their 4th grade year and are required to write an essay stating why they would be a great addition to next year's WFTN crew.
Students work as anchors, reporters, camera operators and directors on our daily morning news team. The show airs on "Fox Trail Network" each morning at 8:05. WFTN keeps the student body informed with lunch and breakfast menus, daily announcements, important dates, school news, local sports and weather updates to "keep you in the know!"
The Debate Team offers students an opportunity to learn how to research and craft a well-organized, respectful debate, and become strong and confident public speakers.
The art club is an opportunity provided to students who love art and are seeking a creative outlet beyond the classroom. Art club members will use a variety of art media to create both individual and collaborative projects to further their experience within the visual arts.
Student Council members are the voice of our student-body. The purpose of Student Council is to foster the growth of student leadership skills by making an impact on our community through student lead service projects and school activities. Student Council members utilize the 7 Habits to guide them in their decisions when planning, and carrying out projects.
As part of the Communications Team, students help record our Friday Parent Phone Links. They keep an eye out on events and other news they think we should be sharing with our community via our communication outlets. At times, they will help create an Instagram, Facebook, or Website post for our school account(s) to communicate this information. Another role they have is to take pictures at school events with our cameras and technology to help document our Fox Trail events throughout the year. As a school, we are trying to encourage our students to be leaders and we want them to be the voice of Fox Trail!
