Fox Hill Celebrations!

Summer Access to Online Programs:

  • Lexia (reading) and Dreambox (math)- Your student will have access to Lexia and Dreambox through the end of June and even some of July! These online platforms allow for individualized practice with reading and math skills! Your child is encouraged to use these learning tools this summer.

  • Epic Basic (online Book Library) - provides free access to one book from a limited library of quality books each day, as well as badges to celebrate reading success and one free Reading Buddy. While it may let a child click into a second book, a message will pop up to save the book for the next day. For Epic Basic, families sign up with a parent email address at getepic.com and create a password. No credit card is required.

  • Epic (online Book Library) - Families may also use their student’s class code to connect to an existing class. As long as students are logging in with a parent account with the same parent email and password, they will be able to access Epic Basic even after a teacher archives his/her roster.

Wanting to make contact this summer with FH Friends??? Don't forget about the Fox Hill PTO 2021-2022 Student Directory.

This directory is only for Fox Hill families, and it is not searchable. To access the directory, you must visit the school website, Find the "For Families" dropdown, select Parents, and select PTO. Go to the bottom of the page and click the "Fox Hill Family Directory" link OR follow the link here : https://fh.msdwt.k12.in.us/pto/


In order to access the directory, you will have to input the password: pioneers21

The link to the directory will remain active all year and families can access it as often as needed. Please note that this directory is published for the private, personal use of Fox Hill families. Any commercial use of the directory is unauthorized and strictly prohibited. Please also note that some families have chosen not to be included in the directory, or to have only partial information included. Any errors are unintentional.

Thank you to our PTO for their efforts in the creation of this directory!!!!!
