Bloomin' Fox Hills Opportunities

  • PTO: The PTO at Fox Hills was established in 1986. The PTO exists to enhance your child's educational experience. All parents are encouraged to join and support, attend meetings and participate in our organization.
  • Visible Thinking: Visible Thinking, a teaching framework from Harvard University, provides students with a culture of thinking that fosters creativity, problem solving, critical thinking, and collaboration. At the core of Visible Thinking are thinking routines that provide students with strategies that extend and deepen student thinking and understanding.
  • Library: We have a stand alone library with over 900 children's books. The children visit our library once a week where they have an opportunity to check out a book and visit with our school librarian for a story. Additionally, there are listening centers and computers available for the children's use.
  • Science Center: Our Science Center teacher works closely with our preschool staff to integrate activities that relate to the studies the children are exploring in their classrooms. Additionally, we have 22 animals in our science center for children to interact with and observe. During our holiday and summer breaks children have opportunities to bring home our animals home for extended sleepovers. All programs visit our Science Center daily.
  • Gross Motor Classroom: We are fortunate to have an entire open space designated as our Gross Motor Classroom. This area is complete with a bike track, climbing equipment, hop scotch, foursquare and physical education equipment. All programs visit our Gross Motor Classroom daily.
  • Gym: In addition to our Gross Motor Classroom we have a school gym. The classrooms visit the gym once per week in place of their Gross Motor time. The gym is equipped with soft indoor climbing equipment, preschool hockey, lacrosse, badminton and basketball equipment and mini roller coasters. Our gym teacher manages the activities offered during gym time to vary the choices throughout the year.
  • Preschool Playgrounds: Our infant/toddler playground is enclosed with age-appropriate equipment for our youngest children. We also have a large preschool playground with age-appropriate play structures, including adaptive swings for our children with special needs.

Infant Program (Ages 6 weeks - 18 months)

Teachers design a safe, nurturing environment that promotes social/emotional, physical, cognitive and language growth in our young learners. Children learn through indoor and outdoor play and exploration, books and stories, music and movement, dramatic play, art and sensory experiences.

Preschool Program (Ages 2.5 - 6 years)

As you enter our preschool classrooms you will notice the classroom's physical space is divided into interest areas. The interest areas are Art, Blocks, Dramatic Play, Discovery, Sand and Water, Toys and Games, Music and Movement, Library, Technology and Cooking. The interest areas contain open ended activities for the children to explore. These activities will support our six content areas which include science, social studies, literacy, math, the arts and technology. The skills your children will develop while participating in the interest areas are directly tied to the Michigan Early Childhood Standards.

Creative curriculum is a proven research based curriculum. This is a developmentally appropriate practice that matches the way children learn and develop. The teacher is the classroom facilitator. As the classroom facilitator the teacher guides, observes, and accesses your child's learning. We use the Creative Curriculum Study Starters to develop our lessons. Study Starters are models to help implement and investigate project based learning. Studies are one of the most effective ways for children to learn science and social studies content while developing skills in literacy, math, the arts, and technology. The children become totally engaged in topics and activities that interest them while challenging them to extend thinking to higher levels. Our IB and Visible Thinking initiatives support this creative curriculum approach.

The parent's role is essential in supporting their child's learning. Within the creative curriculum approach, there are many opportunities to involve families.

New Update for School Lunch Program

As of January 25th, Bloomfield Hills Schools will use Community Pass only for all lunch program payments.  When logging into My Bloomfield and signing in to view a specific student, lunch balances and a transaction history will still be available.  However, payments will only be accepted through Community Pass.  

We understand that a lot of parents have appreciated the ability to make payments online, view transactions, and see account balances.  All of this will still be possible - the only change is that payments will no longer be accepted in the same location as you find balance information.  This is due to a rising cost environment in credit card processing fees that the district has historically not asked families to incur, but has rather paid on families' behalf.  The switch to 100% payment processing through Community Pass will allow us to retain the functionality of online payments, yet save money from the district's general fund.

This transition should be fairly seamless, but we recognize you may have some questions.  Please allow five minutes after processing a payment to contact us with any questions so we can digitally see the transaction on our end and better support your request.  In addition, please note that you may process payments for multiple items in the same shopping cart within Community Pass.  So, if you'd like to purchase lunch credits at West Hills along with Saturday swim lessons, please feel free to complete one checkout process for the entire family.

If you haven't already, please make sure you have your login information for Community Pass. If you have forgotten your login or password, please go to https://register.communitypass.net/reg/login.cfm?cuBOB%2F%2FX0p4trnasCJNBkrfRqBNbAcM1ugTdgJwcwr%2BLxIFL2ZCtvf%2Fw to view instructions on how to retrieve that information.  Instructions will be sent directly to the email that is listed as the primary email for your student's account. If you have issues with this process, please contact the Recreation Department at 248.341.6425.
