Schools in Foxbank PlantationFoxbank Elementary School opened its doors for the first time in August of 2018 serving more than 800 students in grades K4 through fifth grade. The school is located within The Foxbank Plantation community and is walkable for all families and students living within the community.
Their primary focus areas this year included a school wide management plan, arts integration, project based learning, and professional learning teams. In keeping with the Profile of a SC Graduate, Foxbank Elementary strives to ensure that all students develop world-class knowledge and skills.
Engaging students in their learning and providing an environment where they desire to come to school every day is one of our goals. Staff work diligently to provide a variety of opportunities for students to be active participants in their learning. For example, students in fourth grade celebrated African American History Month by conducting research about famous African Americans. They collaborated with each other to create a Living Wax Museum and invited students from other grade levels, parents, and staff members to visit and learn about notable people who have made a difference. Off-campus field trips provided an extension of classroom learning and allowed students to connect with real-life experiences.
Foxbank Elementary provides many extra-curricular activities and special events. Students are able to participate in Band, Chorus, Run Club, Art Club, the FBE News Team, and Shag Club. The school hosts a Winter Fest, a 5k Run and Spring Fling festival. Students also have the opportunity to take part in a Color Run that raises money for the future Moncks Corner Miracle League Field.
Foxbank Elementary is a STEAM school that encourages transdisciplinary units where student ask questions and generate creative solutions to solve problems and issues. Students also participate in STEAM activities across subject areas, and enjoy using the Maker Space Area located next to the media center. With guidance from the school librarian, students also engage in novel engineering.
