Clubs

Thanks to Fox, the PTA, and many dedicated volunteers, there are several enrichment opportunities for Fox Students. These are only a handful of examples... If you have a great idea or unique talent, share it, and get something new started. 

Math Club & Tournament

The Fox Math Club is an enrichment program designed to foster student's interest in math. Children practice skills learned in class with online quizzes either on their own or with their parents helping them through the process. The club is a great way for students to develop intuitive thinking skills and learn math while having fun.
