Dorothy Fox Car Caravan Map 2pm Fri 4.17.20

Did you Here?

The Dorothy Fox Staff will be coming to your neighborhood in a Car Caravan tomorrow, Friday, April 17th.

It will start at 2:00pm from the school and follow the map attached.

We can’t wait to wave and smile at our students.  We have missed you!

We want everyone to be safe and show the Fox Four:

  •  Stay 6 feet apart from others.  Only be close to people in your family.
  •  All social distancing rules apply.
  •  Stay out of the road at all times.
  •  Do not approach the cars
  •  If it is not coming down your street, you can come to a nearby street in your car and wave from your window.
  •  If you walk up to the parade route, you must stay away from others.
  •  Stay home if you feel sick.  We will take lots of photos/videos and you will still be able to see it.

We would love to collect your photos of the event to put in our video for all the other families.  Please send videos or clips of the caravan to cathy.sork@camas.wednet.edu.

See you soon!

Thank you to our nurse, Karen Wight, who lead our teachers in an exciting game of Safety Jeopardy during our August In-service.  This activity helped teachers to receive up-to-date training in signs of allergic reaction, epipen use, choking, and other emergency response issues to make sure that we are ready to support our students with the safest school community possible.

Martha Cocklin-1st grade teacher

Ms. Cocklin has been an educator for over 20 years and her 1st grade students feel like she is “the best teacher in the whole wide world.”  When Martha is at school, she enjoys meeting with her collegues over lunch.  This gives her a chance to take a few deep breaths from her busy day.  Not very many people know that Ms. Cocklin had an amazing childhood growing up in the country.  She spent time climbing trees, building forts, riding horses and tubing in the Lewis River.  She loves to spend her weekends reading, yoga-ing, walking or hiking with friends, and her dog.  She recently read a book called, Dog On It by Spencer Quinn.  It is a mystery story told from the point-of-view of the dog.  We are so glad that Ms. Cocklin is a part of our school staff! martha photo
