Dear Grade 4 and Grade 5 Parents,
On Friday, December 15th, Fox Hill School will host its annual Winter Concert. Our music specialists, Mrs. Medico, Ms. Harrigan, Mr. Napierkowski and Mr. Samulak have produced an outstanding Winter Concert to share with the Fox Hill community. Our Winter Concert represents the culmination of a lot of hard work, joy and collaboration amongst our students, teachers and support staff.
Our Winter Concert will begin promptly at 9:30 am in the cafeteria for parents and grandparents only. All Fox Hill students will have an opportunity to see the Winter Concert at 1:30 pm so younger siblings will not be dismissed from class to view the Winter Concert at 9:30 am on Friday, December 15, 2017. Our kindergarteners will attend the morning performance so they are able to enjoy the Winter Concert too!
Thank you for your cooperation and your support. We look forward to seeing you at the Winter Concert!
If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 781-270-1791.
Ellen K. Johnson, Principal
Fox Hill School
Last week I met with several fifth grade girls who are serving on the Grade 5 Student Reception Committee. During our meeting I was so impressed with their confidence, their poise, their ideas, and their can-do attitude. This group of girls is charged with organizing the student events immediately following the Grade 5 Reception and they are giving it their best. They are collecting feedback from their peers and consulting with grade 5 classroom teachers regarding the day’s events. They scheduled a lunch meeting with me and presented their agenda and proposal for activities via google docs. We exchanged ideas, problem solved the logistics of the day and had great fun doing so! This is a talented group of students who will make a positive mark on the world. I would not hesitate to put these students in charge of anything, they are CEOs in the making!
Every June, our fifth graders take on the Fox Hill teachers in our annual volleyball tournament. Our fifth graders are enthusiastic and serious when it comes to this match. Our fifth graders played cooperatively and skillfully giving their best effort in the hope of beating the teachers. Our teachers are just as good athletes as they are teachers and they are a hard group to beat. Our teachers won the tournament again this year, however, there is always next year! So rising fifth graders, we will see you next year at the game and perhaps you will be the first grade to beat Fox Hill teachers!
