A message from Dr. Cathy Sork, Ed.D.:
Welcome to Dorothy Fox Elementary. On behalf of the entire staff, it is a pleasure to greet you as valuable partners in your child’s educational experience. Dorothy Fox is fortunate to have highly qualified, professional, and dedicated staff members who are truly committed to providing your child with the best education possible in a caring environment. Our students do their BEST as they focus on the important “Fox Four.” Students at Fox are SAFE, RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE, and they are LEARNERS.
We offer our students a quality academic program that encompasses kindergarten through fifth grade. In addition, we have full-time professional educators who teach and enhance learning in general music, physical education and library/media skills. Our strong scholastic focus is supported by the highly trained literacy and intervention specialists we have on staff.
Our community is interested in supporting the whole child and we have a strong PTA organization. Our parent community helps us to provide quality arts programs and we have a schoolwide focus on showing kindness. The Social and Emotional needs of students are part of our intentional curriculum and we practice self-regulation and collaborative problem solving skills.
At Dorothy Fox, it is a priority to meet the learning needs of each and every student. Fox hosts an English as a Second Language program, a LAP remedial reading program known as the “Fox Den”, a Resource Room program for students with special individual needs known as “Fox Camp” and an Integrated Academic Program for students with mild to moderate disabilities known around campus as “Kit Cove.”
Our community is passionate about math and science. Our annual STEAM Night is an example of our commitment to having students learn to be creative thinkers, scientists, and inventors. We support students in problem solving and having the perseverance to do hard things with a growth mindset.
We embrace the fact that open, positive, two-way communication is essential in any good partnership and encourage families to stay connected with Fox throughout the year. Feel free to call, email or schedule an appointment with school staff members if we can answer any questions. We are proud of our school, our students, our staff, and our community. We invite you to visit Dorothy Fox Elementary School and become a part of our school community.
Dr. Cathy Sork, Principal
Dorothy Fox Elementary Adds Our First Ever Associate Principal in Fall of 2020.
As our school district grows larger and responsibilities grow to match, Dorothy Fox was able to join the trend across the state to add some Associate Principal Support this year. We are thrilled to have Ms. Hannah Hartman at Dorothy Fox Elementary as a part time Associate Principal. We share her with neighbor school Grass Valley.
Ms. Hartman brings a lot of experience as a leader and educator overseas.
