Fox Elementary Open House

Last night, parents and families of Fox C-6 Elementary students had the opportunity to attend a district-wide Open House. The event was hosted by each building and allowed students and families the opportunity to meet teachers and ask questions about the upcoming school year. Assistant Superintendent Andy Arbeitman noted:

“It was incredible to see and witness the reconnections and the excitement of everyone involved coming back to school.”

Antonia Elementary used this opportunity to reveal improvements to its gymnasium. The improvements, which were funded by the Antonia PTO, include new curtains, a new decal, as well as new paint and storage.

Meanwhile, at Fox Elementary School, Principal Lisa Sell used the Open House as an opportunity to kick off the school-wide Character Education theme: “Superheroes of Great Leadership.”

Faculty and staff donned their capes and best superhero poses to welcome students and families. The theme will help students get excited about the monthly character traits highlighted by the district to promote excellence within the community. Information about Fox’s Character Education program can be found here.
