June 8th Clean Up Day Volunteers

The 5th Grade teachers are coordinating a Clean Up Day outside of Fox Hill School for their students.  The goal is to help teach the 5th graders to become champions of the planet.  Students will have the opportunity to head outside during different intervals of the day on Friday, June 8th (rain date one week later) to tidy up around the school by raking, cleaning up trash, planting flowers, and possibly spreading some mulch.  In an effort to help the students accomplish this goal, some supplies and parent volunteers will be needed.

It would be wonderful if anyone is willing to donate the following:

• Flats of flowers (approximately 12 flats)

• Paper lawn and leaf bags (approximately 40 bags – they usually come in packs of 5)

• Large green trash bags (1 or 2 boxes needed)

• Borrowed rakes (approximately 10 needed)

• Borrowed small handheld gardening shovels for planting (approximately 6 needed)

Thank you so much in advance for helping the 5th graders learn about taking care of their environment while also showing their pride in their school.

If you have any questions at all, please contact Colleen Spreadbury directly at ccspread@verizon.net

Flowers Donation!

We are asking each student for a donation of $2. The donation will be used to purchase flowers to present to the folks who help make the spring concert possible! We are hoping to collect the donations as soon as possible so we can plan ahead.

Thank you in advance,

Mr. Raymond

MCAS Tomorrow

Just a reminder that tomorrow is day one of Math MCAS for grade 5! Make sure to use this as an excuse to get the kiddos into bed early! A nice hearty breakfast will also help get things off to a good start in the A.M.! We will have a second day of testing on Thursday as well, then return to our regular schedule. I’m looking forward to seeing the successes of your students, as they have worked hard all year and are ready to show what they’ve learned.

Red, White, and Blue!

Students are encouraged to wear Red, White, and Blue tomorrow as we welcome Kali Flanagan! Kali is a former Fox Hill student, who just won a gold medal with the USA hockey team at the Winter Olympic Games! I know that we are all looking forward to this special opportunity.

Math Support Sessions

Good morning!

Due to low attendance, I will be switching the Thursday afternoon math support session to Thursday mornings. The Wednesday morning session will remain unchanged. Students are welcome to come in for either day or both days.

Math Support Sessions:

Wednesday Morning (7:40-8:25)

Thursday Morning (7:40-8:25)

 

If neither of these times work for your student and you would like for them to meet for extra support, please shoot me an email at jraymond@bpsk12.org

 

Thanks,

Mr. R
