In our effort to raise awareness and prevention, Foxfire will conduct an anti-bullying campaign for the month of October. This month we will host a number of activities/events to help spread information about bullying with the hopes of creating a school environment free of harassment and discrimination. Students will participate in poster contests, writing contests and will learn about different forms of bullying. Our students will also learn how everyone plays a role when it comes to bullying prevention.
Thank you to all parents who attended Open House, we appreciate all your support!
Thanks to the firefighters from Yonkers Fire Department 309!
The entire third grade tasted various types of apples and created a bar graph. Also, we watched short clips on Discovery Education about Johnny Appleseed. We cooked homemade applesauce The peels and cores were placed in compost. It was a great time!
On Friday, October 3rd, Ms. Ricciardi's 4th graders celebrated their hard work and improvement in writing for the month of September. The students used the writing process to compose goal paragraphs, autobiographies, and personal journals. They learned that good writing takes time and effort. During our celebration, each student shared his or her favorite journal with their classmates while snacking on a variety of delectable apple products donated by our parents and teachers. Mrs. Majors and Mrs. Eugenio joined us as we listened to some interesting sensory writing. As we listened, the students made us feel, see, hear, smell, and taste their trips to the farm, feelings about a special person in their lives, or stories about their pets. The journals were as tasty as the apple treats! We also integrated science into our writing by learning the life cycle of an apple tree. We are very proud of our students and know they will continue to grow and improve everyday. Thanks to all who participated in this great celebration!
