Make sure your child, his/her class, and all the fun they have at Fox Mill are preserved in the yearbook!

Whenever you attend a school activity, take a few photos and email them to fmesyearbook@gmail.com. As long as they aren't blurry and show kids' faces, they are perfect---Cell phone pictures are great! Spirit days, class parties, candid shots of students working or with their reading buddies, eating lunch in the cafeteria, field trips---we'll need photos of all of these activities.
