Back To School Night, One More Thing...

Thank you to all the parents for coming to Back To School Night last night!  The fifth grade team is delighted to work with you this year. One thing we forgot to mention was that there are many opportunities to help the Fox Hill Community both in and out of the classroom.  Mrs. Johnson is having a Parent Volunteer Orientation program on Tuesday, October 8 at 9:30am and also at 6:00 pm if you can't make it during the day. This meeting is required even if you volunteered last year.   Again, many thanks for your continued support.  Enjoy the beautiful weekend ahead!

Science Adventures and More

It appears that Camps Bournedale and Foxy were both greatly enjoyed by all!  We have lots of parents and teachers to thank for all their support and organization, especially Mr. Lisano and Mr. Norman!  The science adventures both here at Fox Hill and at Camp Bournedale engage us and inspire us to think about our environment and to learn what we can do to make our world a better place for everyone!

Coming Up...
The fifth grade teachers look forward to meeting with parents on Thursday evening at  6:30 for Back To School Night.

First Week

     Our first week was simply great! I can tell already it will be a wonderful year.  We are getting to know each other and the routines and expectations.  It is a pleasure meeting with families and hearing how I can best ensure a successful fifth grade experience. Students are sharing their hopes and dreams and the entire fifth grade team has worked on creating a class constitution to help us all be accountable to ourselves and each other. We met two new fifth graders at our Belonging Assembly.  I was proud of their courage as they stood in front of their new classmates, and I was also proud of the way they were welcomed and embraced by the students.
      I look forward to continuing to meet and work with all of my students' families.  Here's hoping you can join us on Back to School Night, September 26.  The fifth grade team: Mrs. Jaffe, Mrs. McDowell, Mr. Norman, Mr. Lisano and I will be happy to talk about the curriculum and answer your questions.
Thank you for your continued support!
