Fox Prairie Working For Kids
The mission of Fox Prairie Working for Kids (WFK) is to support the needs of students, families, and staff of Fox Prairie Elementary School. We do this by hosting events and coordinating fundraisers.
Any parent or guardian of a student at Fox Prairie can be a member of Working for Kids. The principal and any teacher(s) at the school may be advisory members. There are four officers: President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary. Officers are elected at the first meeting of the new school year.
Our officers for the 2020-2021 school year are Kathy Rozema (President), Garth Ewing (Vice-President), Vicki Haskell (treasurer). At this time the Secretary position is vacant and is being filled on an interim basis by our outgoing Secretary, Mia Croyle.
What we do:
Working for Kids creates opportunities to enhance a sense of community within our school. We host events throughout the year that bring students and families together at school or in the community for socialization, recreation, and fun. We also do fundraising throughout the year so that we can provide financial support for things like school-wide field trips, Reading is Fundamental (RIF) books for all students, individual support to classrooms and teacher and staff appreciation. For more details, see our 2019-2020 Annual Report.
How to stay in touch:
Like you, we don't know exactly what the 2020-2021 school year will look like. One thing we know for sure is that we always need more members! For now, we are meeting via Zoom and will announce meeting dates via Facebook and the weekly Fox Prairie eNews and Infinite Campus messages. The best way to stay up to date is to like our Facebook page @FoxPrairieWFK and watch for WFK info in the Fox Prairie Enews.
