We need approximately 26 more parents to fill out this survey. THANKS!!!!!


The Parent Survey is currently open. Take the survey by visiting https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ and select the appropriate survey. Make sure you enter Kane County in the box for county even if your home or your child’s school is in DuPage County. This will allow you to correctly select your child’s school.


We need at least 20% of families to complete this survey. We use the results of the survey to help us with future planning. So far our current response rate is 13%. We would really appreciate families taking the survey. This Parent Survey is currently open and will remain so through April 2, 2021.

Where is my Child's Report Card?

Just another friendly reminder that Teachers have prepared progress reports for each student. The Report Cards are ready for viewing electronically on Home Access Center (HAC). Just like last year, Paper copies will NOT be sent home. As always, if you have any questions, concerns, or compliments, please reach out to your child's teacher.

If you need help logging into your HAC, don't be shy. Our office team can help you get logged in. :) Call any time. 331-228-3300

Calling all our creative foxes! This is the event for you! Join us Thursday, March 25th at 6:00pm for a virtual painting party hosted by Pinot's Palette in St. Charles. The cost is $30 per paint kit. All materials you will need to paint your masterpiece will be provided. An instructor will walk you through step by step instructions over zoom to create the adorable spring fox painting you see to the right. Our finished piece will have optional royal blue flowers to show our Anderson Fox pride. Materials will be delivered to school and you can either choose to pick them up at school or we can make arrangements to deliver them to your home. All are welcome to participate (moms, dads, grandparents, cousins...). There will a limit to 100 families due to the companies zoom licensing limitations. The deadline to sign up is Thursday, March 18th. We CANNOT accept late sign ups, as the company needs time to put the paint kits together. Questions? Contact Lisa at: ptosecretary.andersonfoxes@gmail.com.
