It's Foxtober Foxes!

Reported by on 10/3/17


It's that time of year again. Foxtober begins this week! If you're new to Fry or unfamiliar with Foxtober, this is one of PTA's big fundraisers of the year. We spend each week in October doing fun activities to encourage the kids to be kind, healthy, smart, and fit Foxes.

Mark your calendar! The month will conclude on Friday, October 27 when the students get outside to participate in the Foxtacle Run. There will be 15 obstacles for the kids to run over, under, and through with their peers. Parents are welcome to come to Fry that day to watch. More information will follow in the weeks ahead.

Last week, your child(ren) brought a gold packet home with more information. Watch the video the kids watched at school to kick off this fun month at As mentioned above, this is one our big fundraisers of the year. The money we raise helps keep fun programs at Fry like STEM, junior great books, room parties, Fry’s Science Fair and much more. Our goal this year is to raise $15,000! If each Fry family contributes $50, we will meet our goal! Donations are being accepted anytime during the month. Please use the envelope that was attached to the gold packet that came home and be sure to include your child’s name and grade/teacher.

So, let's come together and exceed that monetary goal this year!! If you have any questions, feel free to email Heather Johnson at A copy of the information packet is attached to this email and can also be found on the Fry PTA Facebook page.


The Foxtober t-shirt order form went out last week...the deadline to order is this Wednesday, October 4th so don't forget to order today! To even make it more convenient for you, look for us at a table outside before & after school tomorrow and Wednesday as we will have order forms waiting for you (and little prizes too). Keep in mind when ordering that shirts are not just for students...volunteers & spectators can order them too! It would be awesome to see a SEA OF BLUE the day of the run on 10/27! And as always, a portion of our sales goes directly back to Fry PTA! GO FOXES!! 🐾—
