Dear Fox C-6 Family,

We are so excited to welcome you to another incredible school year at Fox C-6! 2018-2019 is set to be another year of learning and exciting advancements that help our students continue to grow.  With love, service, and care, we continue to make certain that each and every one of our students is prepared for their next steps in life. We couldn’t do it without our amazing community!

Tomorrow, we will once again welcome your children into our care. It is a great privilege to serve some of the finest students in the Nation. All of our staff and I so look forward to seeing our students again. Each of our children deserves the absolute best education possible and we will continue to work hand in hand with the community to see that every student at Fox C-6 has the opportunities they need to find success.  Our teachers have been working so hard for the first day of school and they are ready.

Before we kick off our year, I wanted to take a moment to thank our staff for their hard work over the summer months.  We had an amazing summer school session this year with increased opportunities for online learning for our secondary students. Our staff also spent countless hours participating in professional development this summer to prepare for another school year. In fact, we hosted many educators from around the region to provide quality teacher education on topics like math and literacy. Many of our high school staff have also been preparing for our new block schedule at the high school level. This new schedule will provide so many new opportunities for students and I am thankful for your support and patience along the way!

I also wanted to take a moment to personally and publicly thank our custodial staff as they have worked countless hours yet again this summer to prepare all of our schools. Think about this fact: we have more square footage to cover and clean than all of Busch Stadium and Ballpark Village combined. Our custodial crews work on a daily basis over the summer to prepare us for when our students come back!

In looking towards the 2018 - 2019 school year, we will continue our focus on safety and security of students, social and emotional wellness, and making certain every student has the right opportunities to succeed.

This year is going to be great! Please know it is my honor being your Superintendent. It is through the work of our tireless staff, our community, and of course, our amazing students that we continue to work toward a better tomorrow.

Here’s to another #FoxC6Strong school year!
