I hope you enjoy all the pictures and remember the fun we had just getting to know each other again. I could not get every picture in this issue, so I will try to use some more in the future. If you missed this event we understand. We all have lots of plans each and every day, so let's start planning for upcoming events and even next year's festival. We want ideas that will enhance the day and our lives. Maybe we could have story telling about Fox Den or someone could bring some of the wild life that you catch in the area, or maybe not! Let's get involved with the community. Anyone can be involved in making the newsletter great and who knows, you might just be on the front cover! Following, will be instructions on how you can upload pictures and articles directly to our website for the following month’s publication. If you are someone that might like to use the publication to organize events and build community (such as a realtor or oth- Future Issues of Fox Den Life. ers) please email email@example.com. Also, I encourage all residents to email any thoughts or concerns they may have about the newsletter. It is our goal to make the best possible newsletter for your community! We want you to be involved in this Newsletter Send in your thoughts, ideas, wishes along with your photos from past events. We are planning the December and January letters at this time, so send in your Christmas Celebrations, Notes from Santa, ‘What I want for Christmas’ lists, and pictures of your (or your neighbor’s) Christmas Decorations. While you are at it, send New Year photos and things I knew would happen in 2011, and they did! Email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Randy Daly Area Director of Fox Den Life 931-224-3259 email@example.com Take the grass catcher off your mower and mow over the leaves on your lawn. You want to reduce your leaf clutter to dimesize pieces. You'll know you're done when about half an inch of grass can be seen through the mulched leaf layer. Once the leaf bits settle in, microbes and worms get to work recycling them. Any kind of rotary-action mower will do the job, and any kind of leaves can be chopped up. With several passes of your mower, you can mulch up to 18 inches of leaf clutter.

From The Fox Den November Letter From Your Board This is the fourth edition of your no cost Fox Den Life magazine. I hope you are enjoying it as much as I have enjoyed it. Please use the advertisers for your respective needs and let them know you heard about them in our monthly magazine. Thanks Randy for the great job you are doing. The Board is grateful to the Fox Den Women’s Club for the donation of two benches for the front entrance. At our September meeting, Janet Underwood of the FDWC made a presentation on the benches and provided photos for the Board’s review. The Board unanimously accepted the contribution. The Fox Den Women’s Club Cook Book Committee raised the funds for the donation through the sales of the cookbook they prepared and sold. The benches are under construction currently. Photos to follow when they are installed. They will be secured in concrete to prevent potential problems. Email addresses are important to us. We have 385 homes in the subdivision and are short 102 email addresses. Please send Cathy Herod or Jim Fox your email address. From time to time we need to get information out to you quickly. As we all know, postage is expensive and saving your dues for the critical things is important. Remember the annual meeting in January. At that meeting, the Board will update you on our activities during the year and expectations/goals for the CY 2012. After the resignation of Ted Scotes and Jack Glover, the Board has appointed Amy Lambert on North Fox Den to serve the remainder of Ted’s term. Lots of things are happening with all the remodeling in the neighborhood after the April storm. Please remember all the signs are overwhelming. The contractor’s signs should be removed when they finish their work. Some have been up for a significant amount of time and it is a distraction.

Komen Foundation, Knoxville affiliate. New Primrose School of Farragut to Prepare Students for Success Beyond Preschool A spiring to make a difference in the lives of area children and their families, area residents Amanda and Jeremiah Webb will open the Primrose School of Farragut in late 2011-early 2012, featuring a high-quality, accredited curriculum shown to prepare students for success in school and life. Over the past six years, Primrose Schools have used the Bracken Assessment to ensure the effectiveness of the Balanced Learning® curriculum. Results at the national level indicate Primrose students are ready for school – more than 90 percent of Primrose students mastered 80 percent of the Bracken school readiness concepts. Primrose students also show 1.5 times more growth than their peers in concepts mastered by the end of the school year. For Amanda, Primrose Schools is a true family affair. Her father, Rick Clemens, owns the developing company that built both her first school in Gahanna and the Farragut school. Her two youngest brothers, Chad and Nathan Clemens, worked alongside her father in building the schools. In addition, her oldest brother and sister-in-law, Luke and Ash- ley Clemens, own two Primrose Schools in the Columbus, Ohio market. The new opening will prove especially special to Amanda because Knoxville is the place where she experienced some of her best childhood memories. "Given the stellar reputation of Primrose Schools across the country, we're proud to bring the Primrose name and their highly regarded accredited curriculum to the Knoxville community," said Amanda. "Our new school will give local parents the peace of mind they need and deserve, knowing that their children are learning and being nurtured while they’re away at work.” The 13,600 square foot Primrose School of Farragut is the only local school that will offer the exclusive Balanced Learning® curriculum for children ages six weeks to five years old. Developed by and taught exclusively at Primrose Schools, Balanced Learning© blends teacherdirected and child-initiated activities with a special emphasis on character development in our schools. The new Primrose School of Farragut, located at 120 Coach Road, will be the first Primrose School in the Knoxville market. Amanda and Jeremiah said the new school will provide an unmatched educational child care experience to area families, and noted that it has already positively impacted the local economy by adding 25 to 30 new jobs, and $2.9 to $4.1 million in project costs. The school will feature 12 private classrooms with state-of-the-art wireless technology. Outdoors, four separate and secure age-appropriate playgrounds will accommodate each stage of the children's early development with equipment specifically designed to help them develop and grow their gross motor skills. Children also develop their fine motor skills in the Primrose Patch – a garden. To contact Primrose School in Farragut, please call 865-966-7673 or visit http:// www.primroseschools.com/Farragut.
