Bonjour, Charlemagne Families!

Les Nouvelles de Fox Hollow (Updates from Fox Hollow)!

M. Chappell’s late start: Robin Chappell won’t be meeting students the first week of school. He’ll be joining his brother in Italy to launch a special retrospective of  his late father’s photography at a museum in Milan. He regrets the unavoidable timing of these days and is grateful his class will be in the capable hands of Mme Kim Pash-Bell.  Since Robin is teaching half-time this year, Mme Kim will be joining him all year in a job-share. She has a reading endorsement so will bring her expertise to both 2 classes. Kim taught last year at Kelly Middle School and the Village school teaching Reading and Math. Kim has two children 4 and 9 years old. She loves the outdoors including rafting, surfing, and snowboarding and was lucky enough this summer to row her own raft the length of Grand Canyon. She’ll be in Room 4 in the morning.

Travis Van Horn joins Mme Elise in our kindergarten. His French is excellent, but what’s the deal with his Scottish accent? You may recognize M. Travis from Starbucks, but he didn’t wear his kilt to work.

Allie Franz is teaching PE 1st semester. She is passionate about all things healthy and providing our students with a new outlook on PE. Mme Allie is pumped to be joining us at Fox Hollow!
