Health Room Reminder
Amy Derry, MSN RN, School Nurse
Thank you for allowing me to help with meeting your child's health needs at school this year. The end of the year is almost here and we are making preparations for the closing of the health room. If your child has medication here at school, a parent or guardian will need to pick it up before the health room closes. For safety reasons, the school does not send medications home with students and medications cannot be stored over the summer. Any medications remaining will have to be disposed of according to DHEC regulations. Please stop by the health room to pick up your child's medication before the last day of school June 8th, 2018. If you need to make special arrangements, please call the nurse at 476-4809.
Mrs. Beale’s class is working on a community project. The following link shares how you can help. Basketball Jerseys for Fox Pride Donors Choose Project
All cafeteria debts should be cleared this coming week as it is our last week of this school year. Students will not be allowed to make purchases the last 3 days of school if they do not have funds in their accounts. If you have any questions about your student's account, you can call the cafeteria at (803)476-4808 or email the cafeteria manager at email@example.com.

Greetings Fox family!
As we wind down this school year, we'd like to take a moment to thank every teacher, parent and child that has volunteered time or donated to the PTSA this year. It has been an amazing year and we have been able to do a lot for teachers and students this year. During all lunches on Monday & Tuesday we will have a photo booth set up for the students’ enjoyment. This is one of our large student awards. This is our THANK YOU, for all of their hard work.
The last event of the year is coming up next week. We still need volunteers to help set up and pass out water on Thursday & Friday morning 8:00-12:00. Click the link below to sign up to help. https://m.signupgenius.com/#!/
