How Can You Get Involved?

 

Stay Informed

Here are a few options for staying informed about matters that impact students and our school.

  • Become a PTA Member ($10/ea or $15/family) and vote on issues impacting our students, school, and families.  You can join the PTA at the Fox On-line Store: https://foxpta.formstack.com/forms/foxstore

  • Attend PTA Meetings. See “This Week at Fox” emails, the marquee, and the Fox website for upcoming meeting times and locations. Generally meetings are the 2nd Wednesday of every month at 7pm in the Fox Multi-Purpose Room.

  • Read Fox’s Weekly Mailings.  The mailings include important announcements, updates, and reminders. Click here to add your email to the distribution.

  • Be familiar with the Fox school website.

  • Understand the role of School-Force.

  • Attend Parent Education nights. Look for emails from the Belmont Redwood Shores School District about these very informative sessions meant to inform parents about school-related matters.

  • Participate in the Fox School Site Council.  This is a way for educators to tap into  ideas, feedback and opinions of Fox parents. See Fox School Site Council for details.

 

Volunteer your Time and Talent

Offering your time and expertise is a great way to be involved in your child’s school life while you contribute to the overall success of every child’s education.  It is also a great way to practice new skills and grow your community network, while getting a peek into your child’s school life.   Chances are good that there is a volunteer opportunity that fits your interest and availability.
