Each year the music ensemble leaders at Fox River Middle School choose a service project. The band leadership team (BLT) and vocal leadership team (VLT) decided to bring instruments and serenade shoppers at Pick n Save in Waterford. The kids sang, played, and rang the bell for Salvation Army last Saturday morning. Great to see our students out in the community 💚

We share a responsibility to ensure your child is on track for college and career readiness. With PreACT®, you can get useful information to help your child choose the right high school courses, think about ways to work on areas for improvement, and even begin discussions about their college and career interests. This year, we’ve chosen to administer the PreACT® to continue actionable steps that your 8th Grader can take to become ready for college and plan for the future. At no cost to you, we are providing your child with the PreACT on December 7, 2022, during regular school hours. You, nor your student, need to prepare for this test. Your student will simply show up to school as if it is a regular school day. The 8th grade staff has prepared a testing schedule and an alternative academic schedule for the students to follow. During the test, students will not be allowed to use any electronic technology, except a calculator (watches, phones, airpods, computers are not allowed). On testing day, please make sure that your child brings a calculator and a #2 pencil. We’re confident your child will do their best. Your student’s results will support academic placement at Waterford Unified High School. We’re confident your child will do their best. This is an opportunity to see your student’s potential performance on the ACT® test. To learn more about the test, visit act.org/preact. For more information on how PreACT 8/9 Data is used at the high school, please feel free to contact Waterford Union High School Principal Dan Foster dfoster@waterforduhs.k12.wi.us or Waterford Union High School Counselor Nicole Werner nwerner@waterforduhs.k12.wi.us.

Our school believes that to do well in school, students need to feel connected to their school community. In our ongoing effort to create a positive and caring school culture, we are having a Youth Frontiers Courage Retreat®. Youth Frontiers (YF) is a nonprofit organization that has been delivering retreats to schools since 1987. They provide schools with experiences that inspire character, civility, and community so that our next generation of leaders is grounded in character. On the Courage Retreat, the YF Programs Staff will focus on creating a more positive school community by engaging students in a variety of activities that enhance self-confidence, empathy, and connectedness. This high-energy, interactive retreat is scheduled for December 9th for the 7th grade class and will be held in the Fox River Gym. Pizza will be provided for all students for lunch. If your child has a food allergy, please contact the school or send a lunch. To reinforce the positive effects of the retreat, we believe it’s important for the entire community to be involved in supporting and communicating the messages delivered on the retreat. Because of this, we encourage parents and caregivers to inquire about their student’s retreat experience by asking the following questions: 1. What activities did you find fun? 2. What were the small-group leaders like? 3. What were some of the social fears that you discussed during the small-group conversations? 4. What’s a fear you really struggle with? 5. What is one thing you can do tomorrow at school to show more courage? Visit https://www.youthfrontiers.org/courage-retreat/ for more information on Youth Frontiers and to watch a video about the Courage Retreat. If you wish to opt your child out of this experience, please contact the office by Thursday, Dec 8th

Fox River Middle School is seeking donations of gently used athletic apparel to benefit students for whom purchasing a uniform t-shirt may be a barrier to participation in sports. Thus if you have gently used volleyball, cross country, or track uniform shirts that you would like to donate to a student, kindly bring those to the Fox River office. Spread the word to those families who may no longer have middle school students. We appreciate our families' generosity, who help make athletics available to all.
