Ready, set, the Get Down, Get Derby! ONLINE AUCTION is open!

Login at http://schoolforce.org/events to start bidding and buying. The auction will be open until after Spring Break, closing on Tuesday evening, April 29.

To help you navigate: click on "Online Auction" on the left to see the auction items, click on your school name for school-specific items, and don't forget "District Wide" items!

And: You can email a friend the items (teacher/grade parties, parent dinners, etc.) you bought and want them to also buy; you can create a wish list of items; you will receive an email telling you when you've been outbid so you can go back to your item and bid till you win!

Let the bidding and winning begin!

Let's Get Scientific!

The Fox Elementary School Science Fair is coming up on Wednesday, May 21, between 6-8 PM!  Get inspired for your project idea by your daily surroundings, things that you wonder about during your day - "I wonder how batteries store energy?" or "Does talking to plants really effect their growth?"  You can also search online for ideas, but I'm sure you can come up with something creative on your own!
 
Don't forget - entry forms are due on Wednesday, May 14 and the fair is open to all Fox students (from K–5th Grade)!

Get Down, Get Derby: Do You Like My Hat?

Do you have your Get Down, Get Derby hat yet? It seems to be the common question at the gyms and on the bleachers these days. People sharing their Pinterest and Instagram pics of cute, ugly, and downright ridiculous hats. But let’s just say you have a weirdly shaped head and you’re not a hat person. That’s okay because mint juleps are one-size fits all and you’re bound to tie one on even if it isn’t a bonnet.

Buy your tickets now at http://schoolforce.org/events.

Tickets will NOT be sold at the door and we anticipate the event will sell out.

If you are planning on attending, buy now to avoid a shut out. Don’t miss what will be the best party of the year. Nearly half the tickets are sold—over 230 district parents are ready to get down and get derby on May 3rd!

Coming Soon: Get Down, Get Derby! Online Auction...
