Good Evening Fox Families, this is your assistant principal Bethany Ruhlman with this week’s announcements and reminders. I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend.

The Foxy Focus for May is Perseverance.  The students hear the following statement on the announcements each morning and are encouraged to incorporate it into their daily habits. 


Perseverance means staying strong through tough times and continuing to work hard and do the right thing even when it is hard. It requires not giving up and putting in effort until the very end.


This past week, student placements forms for the 2024-2025 school year were sent home with students.  This is your opportunity to provide any suggestions for your student’s placement for next year.  These forms are due on May 14th. 


SOL testing continues this week.  On Tuesday, our 5th graders will take their science SOL and on Wednesday, our 4th graders will take their Virginia Studies SOL.  


The PTA is looking forward to hosting the last event of the year. Please join us this Friday, May 10th, for an outdoor movie night.  The students have voted, and by a large margin they have chosen the movie Elemental. Doors will open at 6:00 and the movie will start at sunset.  Hamburgers and hot dogs will be provided. 

The PTA is looking forward to another great year next year.  Please take a minute to complete this survey to help the PTA Board plan for next year. If you are interested in being on the PTA Board we are still looking for an Events Co-Chair and Publicity Chair. Please send an email to [email protected] if you have any questions.
