Say "Cheese!"

Room 13 will be retaking our class photo on Wednesday right after Music at 9:35.
(If you want to have your school photos retaken please return the original order envelope on Wednesday.  Students who were absent on picture day in October will receive a new order envelope.)

The Vocabulary Parade brought out our creative side!!  It was a great way to spend the day before Thanksgiving Recess. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.  Don't forget the food drive ends on Wednesday. We are still looking for a couple of parents to deliver the food on Thursday.  Thanks to everyone for your support of this Student Council project.

It's the second annual Fox Hill Vocabulary Parade!

 For this all-school event, your child should select a word and create a "costume" that conveys the meaning of the word. A flyer about this event was sent home last week, and it included ideas for grade-level appropriate vocabulary words. We also discussed this in class today and children know they should not wear costumes on the bus, but rather bring it so they can put it on at school.

Another important date to remember is WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 30. Fifth Grade Student Council is running a holiday food drive to benefit Burlington's People Helping People. Our grade has been assigned the following food items to collect: pancake syrup and spaghetti sauce. There is a box in our pod for your family's contribution.
💞We are also in need of volunteers to pick up the food collected and bring it to  People Helping People.  If you are available around the first of December please let me know!
