Fox Hill Heroes

Today we honored special individuals as well as community helpers.  Our sincere thanks to Mrs. Magnarelli, Mrs. Walsh, Mrs. DeRosa, and to our Burlington Police and Firefighters.  

You all make a difference in our community and it is a privilege to honor you!

Fifth graders enjoy a visit with a fire engine!


Your child has been assigned a science project in Mrs. Jaffe’s class. The project was started in class and involves illustrating the reproductive parts of a flowering plant and writing/typing of summary of that process. Both the written portion and the illustration were modeled in class last week; students were even given time in class to start the illustration. To complete the work, your child will need his/her science journal and folder that contain important printed resources. Please talk with your child about this project. The directions and grading rubric are very clear. Feel free to contact Mrs. Jaffe ( if you have any questions.
