Welcome to Mrs. Fox's Class!
Grade six - and beyond!
February Targets:
Reading and Fraction Skills
Are you ready for seventh grade?  One of the best ways to prepare is to set and strive to achieve personal goals.  We will assess our skills, and work on setting goals for the second semester.

Note to Families:  It is important that students have a water bottle each day.  We are happy to hold a bottle and refill it here at school - hydration is so important!
  • Accelerated Reader is a focus for our class - students should be testing on books every week!  Our goal for the third quarter is 25 AR points (minimum).
  • Students will have P.E. in Mrs. Fox's class on Wednesdays and Fridays most weeks. Binder and planner checks are continuing during homeroom period.
  • Math journals are an important resource for our learning.  Be sure that yours is complete, and that the table of contents is accurate.
Our school has adopted a new Positive Behavior Intervention and Support initiative - be prepared to see some changes on campus, and in your classrooms.  As part of this, be ready to demonstrate the school SOAR expectations:
S - Strive to Learn
O - Own your Actions
A - Act Safely
R - Respect Others

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 - using 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 junior this year, and is planning to study health education. In addition to reading, the Fox family love their pets, music, traveling, swimming, kayaking, the Dodgers and Kings teams, and anything in nature.
