Dear Fox Chase Families,

    Mr. Kowalski and our second grade students are enthusiastically preparing for our annual Veterans Day assembly, scheduled for Friday, November 10th.  This is our opportunity to come together as a school and thank our veterans for their service.  This is a closed assembly, just for FC students, staff, and our guests, but Mr. Kowalski has arranged for the performance to be recorded, with a link provided for parents.

    If you have a veteran in your family or circle of friends that is connected to your Fox Chase student(s), please reach out to them and invite them to join us on the 10th.  We will begin the morning with a reception, which starts at 9:15 a.m., offering coffee and donuts.  After the assembly, which begins at 9:45 a.m., we invite our veterans to accompany their special student(s) to their classrooms for a brief question and answer session. 

    Veterans should rsvp to the Fox Chase Elementary School office by calling 630-636-3000.  Feel free to leave a message, but please include the following information in the message:  the name of the veteran and any guest that may accompany them and the name(s) of related/connected Fox Chase students.  Mr. Kowalski is requesting photos of our veterans for a slide show.  Pictures sent to school will be scanned and then returned.

    If you have questions, please contact the school office at the number listed above.  We look forward to welcoming our guests for this special event.
