Principal’s Message About the School:
Welcome to Fox Hollow Elementary
School, where we cultivate a culture of leadership using 7
Habits of Happy Kids. Our vision, “Together, we shape leaders and
learners” supports our commitment to providing a safe and
trusting environment, achieving rigorous academic standards, welcoming
accountability, valuing diversity, practicing compassion, and fostering a sense
of wonder & joy in every student. Our students take pride in being Respectful,
Responsible, and Safe. As we embark on our new adventure with a traditional
calendar, our staff will ensure our 2014-15 school year is met with the same
high expectations of success for all children, as in the past.
The Fox Hollow student body is composed of a diverse group of learners. Our school serves as the elementary site for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing program for Cherry Creek School District. Each classroom is equipped with a LightSpeed amplification sound system which enables students to hear the classroom teacher from anywhere within the room. This enhances student engagement for all students. Additionally, 12% of our student body are English Language Learners and represent 17 different languages. The cultural background and experiences that they bring to school daily enriches our learning community.
Our dedicated staff is highly qualified with 85% of our teachers holding advanced degrees. We expect academic excellence for all children. We achieve this by teaching a rigorous curriculum with clearly defined learning expectations for students that meet or exceed the state standards. Our teachers acknowledge that students learn in a variety of ways and differentiate teaching to meet each student’s unique needs
In an effort to help students identify and develop their talents, we provide art, music, PE, and technology classes during the school day. We offer gifted and talented enrichment as well as targeted reading intervention for students who need extra support. Additionally, we offer Choir, Intramurals, Reading Together and Student Council before and/or after school. We also host other after school programs such as band, strings, Spanish, art, and theatre. Families may also access our before and after school daycare, kindergarten enrichment, and preschool through Discovery Club, our extended childcare program.
As the principal at Fox Hollow, I have the pleasure of working with a community that is involved and supportive. Parents contribute numerous hours of volunteer time by assisting in classrooms or supporting PTO events. Parents and community members are encouraged to join in the fun through various committees and organizations including PASS (Partnership for Academically Successful Students), PTO (Parent Teacher Organization), and the Fox Hollow Accountability Committee.
Our goal is to develop lifelong learners and to make each day special for every student at Fox Hollow.
