💲 Coin Drive 💲
Fund Raiser
For Hurricane Victims

Monday, September 25 - Friday, October 6

All Proceeds Benefit

Sponsored by the Fifth Grade
At Fox Hill School

A very enthusiastic group of committed fifth graders has organized a coin drive to raise money for victims of the recent devestating hurricanes. The coin drive begins on Monday, September 25 and lasts until Friday, October 6. Donation jugs will be placed in each of Fox Hill's pods, as well as the lobby. All proceeds from the coin drive benefit the American Red Cross.
Please talk with your child about this fund raiser, and support this worthy cause by sending him/her to school with some change or dollar bills. We are so proud of our students' initiative!
Thank you!

Take the Preamble Challenge!

Image result for constitution

We learned a little about the Constitution in Social Studies this week as Sunday, September 17 was Constitution Day.  As part of this learning we read The Preamble and examined what each phrase means. 
I have challenged my students to memorize and recite the Preamble. 
Keep tuned to this blog to see the results!

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
