Fifth grade students at Fox Road Elementary take part in an in-depth and collaborative inquiry project known as the PYP Exhibition. Students chose from one of the Sustainable Goals for Global Development created by the United Nations for this project. They created guiding questions, took action and presented their findings to the school community. Find more information about the PYP Exhibition here.

Project LIT is a national, grassroots literacy movement dedicated to empowering students as readers and leaders while increasing access to high-quality, culturally relevant books. Students immediately gravitated toward the chosen book, Ghost by Jason Reynolds. A group of fifth grade students helped to plan and organize the event. Over 100 students, parents, teachers and community members came together to discuss characters, make connections, test their memory, take part in a World Record challenge, and vote on the next Project LIT book. It was truly a success to see so many parts of our community coming together to celebrate the love of reading at Fox Road Magnet Elementary.

Mrs. Turnau's first graders wrapped up the unit, "How We Express Ourselves" with a special celebration yesterday. As a part of this unit, students explored traditions and celebrations important to various cultures. Students and parents shared their traditional clothing and customs with the class and many students shared that they often celebrate with a piñata. As a result, the students made their own piñatas out of balloons using paper mache and they took turns breaking them open.
