Parking Lot

We usually send this message at multiple times throughout the year because it is so very important.


Driving in our Parking Lot

Please remember to drive with caution as you enter and exit our school parking lots. The traffic flow at all schools is slow and that is the safest for our kids.

We have many children and families crossing the streets from Camelot Village and our surrounding Fox Run neighborhoods. Please try not to be in a hurry when dropping off and picking up your children. We have noticed some drivers who have not been driving cautiously and we need to be safe with our children, families, and staff all around.

*You must slow down and drive with caution.


Crosswalks

Please also remember to always use the crosswalks. It becomes unsafe when children and parents walk in and out of cars in the parking lots. The crosswalks are the safest areas to use when walking in the parking lots.


No Unattended Vehicles in the Drop Off Lanes

Please remember, there is no parking in the drop off lane, so please pull all the way up to the front of the drop off lane (by the front of the school), drop your child off (parents/drivers need stay in the car) and then you may keep moving.


If you arrive early and don't want to let your child out yet, please park in a parking spot in the parent lot until ready to drop off. Remember, all students need to use a cross walk with a crossing guard before and after school.


Respecting Crossing Guards and Student Safeties

Please respect the staff crossing guards and our young student crossing guards. There job is to keep everyone safe. At times they may ask you to follow certain rules you may not agree with. Please do not take it personal. They are doing their jobs. The goal is to keep you, your children, and everyone safe. Thank you for understanding.


Thank you for helping to keep everyone safe.

Character Education and The Positivity Project at Fox

Character education is a focus in our school. We have wonderful families and students and work hard to instill the value of character.


Through character education students can

  • acquire and apply knowledge and life skills to develop positive identities
  • become resilient and demonstrate perseverance
  • better manage emotions
  • achieve goals
  • feel and show empathy for others
  • establish and maintain supportive relationships
  • make responsible and caring decisions
  • learn to demonstrate leadership


When looking at the list above, it is easy to tell that each of these items are an important part of being a contributing member in our communities, having good character, and being a leader in any way that we can.


At Fox, one way we work to help teach and instill good character with our students is through using The Positivity Project. Our teachers use daily lessons focusing on character traits and work with our students to be an empathetic and caring community.


During the month of November we are focusing on the following character traits:

Perspective

Bravery

Gratitude

Kindness


Character is a life skill. We don't have to agree with each other or have the same views, but we can always show good character and respect each other.


As I always say, grades are great, but your character and effort are much more important in life. As parents and teachers, we should applaud our children for their effort and character. Having the best grades won't make you a successful person. Being the best kid on your sport's team won't make you a successful adult. While these things are great, they aren't what's most important. Your work ethic, having a growth mindset, resiliency, and how you treat others means everything and will make all the difference now and later in life.


A team that works together will outperform a team of talented individuals all moving in a different direction.

What we believe at Fox

Purpose

Our purpose at Fox is to connect our COMMUNITY, develop CHARACTER and maintain COMMITMENT to the growth of the whole child.


Vision

The Fox Family will be an environment and culture that nurtures relationships and community, teaches the importance of character, and demonstrates continuous growth in both teaching and learning.


Mission

Our Fox Family is committed to our community, teaching the value of character, fostering continuous student growth and the development of the whole child.


Core Values

Our Fox Family believes in the importance of an environment and culture that nurtures relationships and community, teaches the importance of character, and fosters continuous growth in both teaching and learning.

Attendance reminder

Don't forget to call in any absences for your child. Here is the number that you call for excused absences:

Just Around the Corner

• A maturation program to help answer questions that girls might have about their growing and changing bodies.

• The session will cover physical and emotional changes that occur in girls during puberty, including menstruation.

• A short video will be followed by a lively discussion session. Local school districts usually present a maturation/reproductive health program for elementary students during their regular class time.


This class is not intended to replace any current reproductive health programs, which may continue as always. The MISD is offering this class to those interested girls and their parent/guardian IN ADDITION to regular school programming. Open to any adult in the community and any 4th and 5th -grade girl in the community.

Masks and Vaccinations

The following information comes directly from the Chippewa Valley School district for all schools in the district to follow:


Mask policies for students and staff

Masks are optional for students and staff in our school offices and summer programs. This fall students will return to the classroom full-time and our plan is to offer an optional mask policy. However, we want to remind families that current guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend that students over the age of two, especially those who are not fully vaccinated, consider wearing a mask indoors, including at school.

We ask everyone to respect each individual’s choice whether or not to wear a mask.


Masks will be mandatory on district transportation.
Per the CDC mandate, masks are mandatory for all school transportation.


Vaccinations & Testing

Chippewa Valley Schools will not separate students by vaccination status or mandate testing for students and staff. While individuals are not required to receive a COVID-19 vaccination, those who have been fully vaccinated may be exempt from quarantine requirements.

We encourage all families to talk to their healthcare providers about the vaccine and strongly support those that are eligible to consider getting vaccinated.


The health and well-being of our students, staff, and families will always be our top priority.

In our ongoing effort to prevent the spread of the virus in our school community, we will continue our established cleaning and sanitation protocols, social distancing wherever possible, and utilize hand sanitizer and frequent hand washing throughout the day. In addition, as a result of previous bond improvements, our schools are equipped with updated air handling units with filters that meet or exceed current CDC recommendations for ventilation and healthy air flow.

Because we recognize that transparent information on COVID-19 cases in our schools is important to our community, we will continue to provide a COVID-19 case report on our website.

We will continue to work with the professionals of the Macomb County Health Department (MCHD) and follow mandates to ensure the continued safety of our students, staff, and community. Our district nurses will work closely with the MCHD on appropriate quarantine procedures and guidelines. We will carefully monitor the virus in our school community and will take any necessary precautions needed to prevent community spread. We will communicate any changes with you.

1:1 Technology

1:1 technology for all students

Throughout the pandemic technology played an integral role in student learning. This school year CVS is excited to offer all K-12 students their own laptop device. Grade specific expectations will be provided as we get closer to the beginning of the school year. Our Technology Department has developed a new tech newsletter for parents and will provide parents with technology nights so families can become familiar with this new initiative.


If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Chippewa Valley Schools at 586-723-2240.

YEARBOOKS

Yearbooks will arrive in September for those who ordered one this year. They will be delivered to Iroquois Middle School if your child is entering 6th grade.

The Superheroes of Fox

Big picture

Developing the Whole Child

At Fox, we recognize that it is important not only to support each child academically but to meet the needs of the “whole child.” Each child is valued as a unique learner with individual cognitive, physical, behavior and social emotional needs. It is our belief that the Fox staff members can best support the needs of each child by working in partnership with families and the community. We know that together we can help children achieve a higher level of excellence through greater motivation and engagement by meeting their basic needs: to be healthy, safe, engaged, supported and challenged.


One of the ways that we support the needs of the “whole child” is through our schoolwide Culture and Climate goal. A key component of this goal is our Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) system. Throughout the year all Fox students will be learning about ways to demonstrate positive behavior and character in our school. Each month our school holds a Fox PAWS assembly and all positive behaviors are celebrated along with various students receiving Growth Mindset and Character Matters awards.

Additionally, our school staff has been working hard to perform skits to model the Positivity Project character traits that we learn about in all classrooms each week. Click on the link below to learn more about the Positivity Project.

http://nationswell.com/positivity-project-good-values-great-citizens/

POSITIVITY PROJECT at FOX

The Positivity Project focuses on Relationships.


From the Positivity Project:


https://posproject.org/why-relationships/


Why Relationships?


The Positivity Project's mission is to empower America’s youth to build positive relationships.

"Why relationships? Because they are the cornerstone of health, happiness, and resilience…and (according to experts) many jobs of the future. That is why we developed a strategy that schools use to inspire positive relationships (student-to-student and student-to-teacher) and cultivate a school-wide #OtherPeopleMatter Mindset." ~Positivity Project


The Positivity Project at Fox is going wonderfully! I just love hearing the conversations and Positivity when I go into the classrooms. Our kids are truly wonderful and POSITIVE thigs are happening.


This year our students will be discussing character traits such as CURIOSITY, TEAMWORK, OPEN-MINDEDNESS, INTEGRITY, PERSPECTIVE, CREATIVITY, BRAVERY, COURAGE, CHARACTER, and GRATITUDE, Knowing Our Words and Actions Affect Others, Kindness, Humility, Self Control, Perseverance, Hope, Optimism, Prudence, Supporting Others When They Struggle, Love, Enthusiasm, Social Intelligence, Cheering Others' Success, the Love of Learning, Forgiveness, Humor, How Other People Matter, Beauty and Excellence, Purpose, Leadership, and more...…

Pay Schools Central

PaySchools Central allows parents to pay for school fees online. PaySchools will be used for items that are over $4.00 that need to be purchased for students. Examples include field trip costs, t-shirts and other items to purchase.

Pay Schools Online Payment
