The Service Center is filled to capacity with retirees

{October 26, 2017} ARNOLD, MO – Over 200 former Fox C-6 School District employees gathered at the Fox C-6 Service Center on October 25th for the district’s first ever Retiree Luncheon. “Our retirees are still a major part of our Fox C-6 community,” Superintendent Jim Wipke said. “This was an opportunity to thank them for their years of service to our students.”

The event was organized by the school district, but was paid for by generous donations from individuals as well as the Fox C-6 Educational Foundation. “The Foundation does a lot of great work for our students and teachers,” Wipke said.

As part of the event, retirees heard remarks from Seckman High School senior Jennifer Cheun. “You helped create a unique culture for students in the Fox District,” Cheun said. “I feel so supported here and I know it’s not like that in every district.”

Other speakers included 2017 Fox C-6 District Teacher of the Year, Chris Keisker. “After 25 years in this district, it’s great to see so many familiar faces,” Ms. Keisker said. “So many of you helped me when I was first starting out as a teacher.”

“We want our retirees to know how much we care about them,” Wipke said.
