The Fox Family Focus: October 3, 2022

Principal's Update

Good Evening Fox Family, this is your principal Anita Roane. Hold on tight! October is here and it’s a busy time of year.

 

Thank you to everyone who came out to our first Title I family engagement night and PTA movie night on Friday! It was a great night for families and everyone enjoyed themselves.

 

The Foxy Focus for October is Kindness.

The students hear the following statement on the announcements each morning and are encouraged to incorporate it into their daily habits.

Kindness is being a friendly and caring person who wants others to succeed. Kind friends have positive attitudes and do nice things for people around them. Since it is National Bullying Awareness Month and LCPS Kindness Month, the goal is to show kindness and appreciate others for who they are inside.

 

As you know, Wednesday, October 5th is our second asynchronous day and it is the perfect opportunity for our students to give back. As we spread kindness by contributing to our first responders! We will be washing fire trucks and School Resource Officer cruisers at our school from 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM. Please wear any LCPS Kindness t-shirt or a school shirt to the event. Remember, parents or guardians, need to attend this event with their students. We are so excited to have this event at our elementary schools. We will be providing sponges but feel free to bring your own sponges and towels. We are super excited to give back to our Louisa County community!

 

Also, this is a reminder for our students, don’t forget that we are drawing closer to our division-wide Rally 4 Kindness on October 13th! This will be one amazing event in The Jungle as we focus on kindness in our schools, our families, our communities, and ourselves! So remember each and every day the importance of being kind to one another, and get excited for our Rally For Kindness on October 13th! All students will be given a kindness shirt on the morning of the 13th.

 

October 10-14 is National School Lunch Week. We are so happy to be able to enjoy lunch in the cafeteria again in fact we think it’s groovy! Speaking of groovy, this year's theme is Peace, Love, and School Lunch. In keeping with the theme, the cafeteria staff would love it if everyone could come dressed in 60s and 70s attire on Wednesday, October 12th.

 

Be on the lookout for a special flyer and email about our first Altruismo Den breakfast being held on October 19th during the morning of Altruismo Unity Day.

 

The October Attendance Newsletter created especially for families by the Attendance and Truancy Support Team is included in the Fox Family Focus Parent Newsletter this week. Please read it for attendance facts and tips.

We believe in collaboration and communication between home and school here at the Home of the Foxes. Please feel free to always share your questions, concerns, and ideas with me. Have a great evening!
