It's Foxtober Fry Foxes!

Reported by michelle_loughran@ipsd.org on 9/28/18

Hey, Fry Foxes!

We could hardly wait for Monday, October 1st! It marks the beginning of Foxtober at Fry! This is one of our two fundraisers at Fry. Each week will have a theme leading up to our big finale, The Foxtacle Fun Run course. Our weekly themes will be supported through fun facts during the morning announcements, an evening family activity at Fry, spirit items and spirit days on Fridays!


Week of October 1st: Fry Foxes are KIND FOXES

· Our focus is on random acts of kindness and friendship.

· MONDAY: KINDNESS TREE - You will receive small pieces of paper on which the
students can write kind gestures and these will be used to create a kindness tree to be
displayed in the lunchroom. These notes could simply be kind words, something nice
that they would like to share about another student, or how they help out family
members! There will be a bucket labeled “Kindness tree” in the copy room throughout
the week for you to put the completed notes.

· TUESDAY: The PTA will be showing “Wonder” for students and family members at
6:30 pm for our Fry family movie night.

Spirit Day: Wear shirts with inspirational messages!


Week of October 8th: Fry Foxes are HEALTHY FOXES

· Our focus will be on healthy food choices.
