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

Meet Your 2023-24 Officers!

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 2023-24 school year are Kathy Rozema (President), Kayla Backhaus (Vice President), Vicki Haskell (Treasurer) and Tess Matson (Secretary). 

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.  

Stay in Touch 

We are hoping to have all in person meetings this school year! The best way to stay up to date is to like our Facebook page @FoxPrairieWFK and watch for WFK info in the Fox Prairie e-news.
