World-class schools serving caring communities

Dear Fox Chase Families,

Well, this has been the strangest winter weather I can remember! It’s almost as though we’re experiencing all four seasons on a rotating basis, rather than one

season at a time. Spring will come, eventually.

Please take note that our Spring Break begins on Saturday, March 25 and lasts until April 3. Also, you will be hearing from your child’s teacher about spring

conferences, which will be held during the week of March 20th. Please request a conference if you have questions or concerns.

On the morning of Sunday, April 30, the Fox Chase Home & School Association will be sponsoring a Color Run. This is the one, major fundraiser that will be held

this year by the Home & School. Please sign up for this fun activity. The color will be flying! It will be a great time for the kids and for any families or friends that

participate. You’ll have a lot of fun, and you will be helping the Home & School in their support of the students of Fox Chase. The proceeds from this event will

help support the many activities and contributions that our parent organization provides. We also hope to purchase another Chromebook cart for the students with
the money raised.

It’s important that you know of the difficulties that our Home & School and Fathers Forum organizations are having in finding volunteers for their many events. As

everyone’s schedules are getting busier, there is less available time set aside for volunteering. The events put on by these wonderful groups are only possible

because people like you say, “YES!” Please notice when requests are made and please take the time to connect with the chairperson who is reaching out to you.

Even if you can volunteer only one time in a school year, your effort will be appreciated.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mrs. Budd or me.



Susan Tiedt, Principal
