Tomorrow (January 12) is Patriots Day at Fox Hill

This Saturday night, the New England Patriots begin their quest for a 6th Super Bowl championship as they play the Tennessee Titans in an AFC divisional playoff game. The Pats had a great year, compiling a record of 13 wins and 3 losses. Let’s hope they can continue their play as a well-oiled machine against a very good Titans team. To show the Patriots they have our support, tomorrow is Patriots Day at Fox Hill School. So, make sure you wear your Patriots shirts, sweatshirts, and hats to school tomorrow. If you don’t have any Patriots gear, they just wear anything red, white, or blue. Go Patriots!

"Bridges Together" Kick-Off Session

This morning, Grade 4 students participated in our kick-off session for this year's Bridges Together program. Each 4th grade classroom has its own senior volunteers for this very worthwhile program. Both kids and seniors learned much about each other during Lesson 1: Getting to Know You. One activity in today's session was for group members to identify characteristics they share with their group members. Based on these similarities, each of Room 20's four groups "named" their group. Students and senior volunteers showed much creativity in deciding on names for their groups. See below, in addition to other photos from today's kick-off session.
