Fox Hill Happenings ~ 2-17-17

principalsdeskAt end of the day on Friday marked the official start of Winter Break.  I wish every Fox Hill family a safe and peaceful vacation and we look forward to everyone’s return to school on Monday February 27th!

Last week was a fun, productive and busy week at Fox Hill School!  Our technology integrationist team, Mr. Murphy and Ms. Scheffer were busy transforming our library, into what is now known in education, as “The Learning Commons.” I have waited a long time for this transformation to occur and this year it became a reality under the leadership of these fine educators.  Take a minute to listen to our teachers’ voices as they explain this transformation into the future!

During this past week, we reached the 100th day of school!  This is always a special and time honored moment in a school year as this day lends authenticity to the quantity of “100.”  Students in grades K-2 collected 100 objects, brought them to school and made creations that demonstrated understanding of a 100.   Our kindergarten students created capes that not only demonstrated their understanding of 100 it also highlighted their creativity. Take a moment to watch this delightful kindergarten parade that celebrated kindergarten’s 100th day of school!

Finally, the kick off to vacation started with a family fun PTO dance at Fox Hill School.  The kids had a great time and special thanks go out to Robyn Magnarelli, Kathleen Matta, Sangita Shah, Margarita Prajapati and Jodi DiFrummolo for organizing this fun event for families and students.  It is clear that fun was had by all!
