Can you volunteer?

 

We plan a number of field trips throughout the year at Fox. We believe that these field trips are essential to the learning of our students. We need parents and guardians who are able to chaperone any trips to come to the office and complete some paperwork so that they may accompany their student and classmates on these exciting opportunities. Our office is open from 8:30-4:00 Monday thru Thursday and 8:30-2:00 Friday.
