Key Club is holding a newspaper drive for a local Animal Shelter. Please help us make our community a better place. Donations can be dropped off in room 124. Or teachers can call (2264) or email Mr. Thomas and we will come get them. Thank you for your assistance!!

Two student teachers in the building are collecting books to fill a free little library for Fox Elementary School. If you have any books at the elementary reading level you no longer need or want please bring them by room 124 and give them to Mr. Sidorski. Think about writing a positive or inspirational message on the inside cover for the young borrowers to read! If you read the book when you were younger, you could write a message telling future readers what the book has meant to you.
