At Black Fox, basketball is a tradition that is supported by the entire Black Fox community. All Fourth through Sixth Grade students will have the opportunity to try out for the boys and/or girls basketball team in the Fall. Not only will students learn more about the fundamentals of basketball, but they will also learn about sportsmanship and what it means to be part of a team.
All Fourth through Sixth Grade students will have the opportunity to try out for the cheerleading team in September. Our Black Fox cheerleaders learn all about school spirit and the fundamentals of cheerleading.
Fourth through Sixth grade students will have the opportunity to apply for and be part of the Black Fox robotics team. Students will be involved in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and engage in a hands-on, affordable, and sustainable robotics engineering program. Through remote and in-person activities, students will increase their innovative thinking, problem- solving, and communication skills, enhancing their academic journey to build a talented workforce in various STEM-related professions.
We will be working together as a team to be the best drivers, programmers, builders, designers, writers, and communicators that we can be.
The Farm2School program is funded through district and school funding and the USDA. This pays for a local farmer to educate and partner with our campus. Students are immersed in agricultural experiences within our campus greenhouse, numerous garden beds, and our multiple tower gardens. Field trips are a part of this program as our students visit the Middle Tennessee State University Dairy Farm and participate in competitions at the Tennessee State Fair. All Black Fox students have an opportunity to work with the Farmer Educator.
