Summer Reading Program at Gail Borden Library

I encourage you to sign up and participate in the Summer Reading Program at the Gail Borden Library.  It helps the children to keep up on their reading over the summer and when they are done they can get prizes.  The more Fox Meadow students we have that participate, the greater chance that Fox Meadow could win the U46 Summer Reading Challenge.  The winning school receives a trophy and in the past they have had Jessie White Tumblers come to the winning school.  The library has dinosaur giants at the main library this summer with lots of cool things to see.


Poetry in the Park July 15th @ 11 am

Mrs. Thompson, Fox Meadow Kindergarten Teacher, is hosting Poetry in the Park at Blackhawk Park in South Elgin on Saturday July 15th at 11 am. Bring a blanket or towel to sit on.  Starbucks will provide lemonade refreshments. Come enjoy the fun.
