What a great start!

Fox Families,

This first month of school has been such an amazing start to our year. We have had so many fun events already. We kicked off our school year with our very first ever kindergarten clap in. I don't think there were very many dry eyes in the building! This will definitely be a new tradition for us! We have had our annual field day, donuts with dear ones, and an incredibly fun back to school assembly. Our teachers were amazing and were highly entertaining for our students! I hope your kids told you all about their dance technique!

We are currently preparing for a very busy September! Next week we are ready for Bugs and Bees activities in the school garden that our PTO has coordinated and helped to create for all of our kids. We are also preparing for our annual school fun run.

And lastly, it been so much fun to be in the classrooms and to see what our students are learning in their classrooms. I am blown away by the activities our teachers are creating and working on. I am so excited about all the connections we have made and will continue to make.

Thank you for letting us love on your kids! We enjoy all they bring to us every day.

Ashley Gray

Thank you so much to everyone who made Fox Hollow’s 2022 Field Day a HUGE SUCCESS! We could not have done it without all of the AMAZING volunteers – some who worked ALL day, and all the families who donated to the Fox Hollow P.E. Wish List! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!!! We can’t wait until next year!

11/1/2022: vision screenings for 2nd, 3rd, 4th (if new to the district or have an IEP) and 5th

You will be notified if there are any concerns with your child’s hearing or vision.

Otherwise assume “no news is good news.”

If you do not want your child to participate, please email Nurse Angie at


Please send in a change of clothes in your child’s backpack. This is so nice to have for “just in case” should they have an accident at school. **If your child has had an accident at school and is given clinic clothing, please wash them (shirts, shorts, pants) and return them as soon as you are able.**

Thank you!
