Welcome to Mrs. Fox's Class!

Grade Six...and Beyond!

Fourth Quarter has Begun!
Are YOU ready for seventh grade?

We are nearing the end of our school year already!  In math we are working on algebra skills, and reviewing what we have learned this year.  In science we are focusing on Earth's natural resources and how to manage them.  We are concluding our work on the Living Wise program - all kits are for family use at home, courtesy of Southern California Edison and Southern California Gas Company.

Remember, each day you should be prepared to learn! Bring a water bottle, pencil, paper, and your school materials (binder, journal, reading log and homework). Most of all, bring a great attitude!

Mrs. Fox will be focusing on three key subjects - Math, Earth Science, and Reading.  We will be switching classes each day with Mr. Wilson.  He is your primary teacher for Language Arts (writing) and Ancient History.  Both Mrs. Fox and Mr. Wilson have a common goal of preparation for middle and high school.  See us if you need anything to help you in your journey!

We are an AVID classroom.  This stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination, a program to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to choose his/her college and career.  First off, we need to be ready - u
sing your planner every day will help to keep you organized!  This, and our binder/journal system, are required in our classes.  You will be learning key reading, writing, questioning, and strategy tools to grow this school year.

Mrs. Fox believes that teaching is her most rewarding job ever, but she is grateful for the experiences that brought her here. In the past, she worked as a writer and salesperson for computer, aerospace and engineering companies. She has taught sixth, seventh, and eighth grades, and is excited to prepare Eastside students for middle school.
Mr. Fox, her husband, is now retired after many years in the printing and photography businesses. Suzie, her daughter, is a college sophomore this year, and is planning to study medicine. In addition to reading, the Fox family love their pets, music, traveling, swimming, kayaking, the Dodgers and Kings teams, and anything in nature.
