Our TK class-where the learning begins!

Fox Elementary is more than a school. It is absolutely the centerpiece of our community. It is full of engaged and caring students, staff and community stakeholders who not only advocate for their own students but especially for our students and families in need of additional support. Whether that support is needed in the area of academics to help students gain critical knowledge or for more basic needs like supplies and social emotional support, this school community steps up. It is this involved "what can I do for others" attitude that makes Fox Elementary a Blue Ribbon nominee. Because of this inclusive and caring environment our students have been able to steadily grow physically, emotionally and academically not only being prepared for the next grade level but to also be prepared to be a positive contributor to our community as well.
