This Week at Fox
Feb 20-24: NO school this week.
Please Help with Lunch Distribution!
Volunteers are needed to simply lay out meals for kids to pick up. Afterwards, the boxes are stacked up for pick up by the vendor. No experience is necessary. And no cooking is involved. And you will earn a lunch credit for your child each time you help out!
For more information, please contact Kip at HotLunch@BenFoxPTA.org

School Force News
You are doing your holiday gift shopping...Wait a second! Isn’t there some sort of charitable kickback on Amazon?
SchoolForce is an “Amazon Associate,” a kind of advertising partner that gets money back if you enter their site through ours. This is far more beneficial than Amazon Smiles or eScrip, as we can earn up to 10% back on your purchases.
When you go to do your Amazon gift shopping, please use the SchoolForce Amazon Link. This will bring you to Amazon through our advertising portal. It will not change the price of items in your cart, but it will earn our school district up to 10% on your purchases...and it doesn’t cost you or us anything!

This form indicates to the district your interest in volunteering. Next, visit the district webpage to determine the level of clearance you are seeking - Clearance Level is determined by the type of volunteer work you will be doing. Print the required paperwork from the district webpage, and submit the completed forms to the school office.
