New Family Welcome Letter

June 23, 2024

Dear Incoming Fox Families,

Welcome again to our new TK and Kindergarten Families, and a brand-new welcome to our incoming 1st-5th grade families joining us next school year! We are so excited to have you join our wonderful community. The 2024-2025 school year promises to be one filled with excitement and new adventures. Our dedicated staff is committed to providing high-quality education that not only focuses on academic excellence but also on the social and emotional well-being of our students. We strive to foster a sense of belonging for all students, ensuring that they feel valued, respected, and supported.

We encourage you to get involved and participate in school activities and events. Whether it's joining the PTA, volunteering in the classroom, or attending the science fair or our multicultural night, your involvement is crucial to the success of our students and the enrichment of our school community.

I wanted to share some information that I thought might be helpful as we head into summer.


Summer Communication

Communication during the summer is mainly limited to the front page of our website. You can also expect to get emails over the summer from the district as well as requests to join ParentSquare -- our district wide communication tool.

Summer Play Groups

Our wonderful PTA coordinates a few summer family playdates for new Fox families. This is a wonderful opportunity for parents to get to know one another and for children to make new friends! These playdates are completely optional and won't have the teachers present. Summer playdates are just a fun way for students and their families to get a chance to meet each other before the school year starts. PTA will be emailing new families in the summer with the date and times of these playdates.

First Day of School

Our first day of school is Wednesday, August 14, 2024. All students will begin their instructional day at 8:25 a.m. The front gates will open at 8:15am. TK dismissal is at 12:15pm and Kindergarten-5th grade dismissal is at 12:20pm. You can find our school bell schedule here.

Teacher and class assignments will be shared on August 10, 2024 (the weekend before school starts) virtually by BRSSD notification. The school calendar can be found on our District website or by clicking here.

Class Supplies

School supplies will be provided to every student by the school, so there is no need to purchase anything before August 14. Your child only needs to bring a backpack, snack, and water bottle to school on the first day of school. If your child is attending aftercare, they may also need to bring lunch, or they can get one at school.


Breakfast and lunch are provided free of charge to all students. There is no need to sign up in advance. To assist you in planning, I will post the monthly menus in my weekly newsletters so you can review them with your child(ren).


Back to School Night

Please save these important dates for Back to School Night!

Back to School Night is a parent-only event, so please plan accordingly. We look forward to seeing you there!

Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or need assistance. Our office staff, teachers, and I are here to support you and ensure a smooth transition into our school.

Once again, welcome to Fox! We are excited to embark on this educational journey together and look forward to a wonderful school year filled with growth, learning, and new friendships. I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Warmest regards,

Taliah Carter, Principal
