Principal’s Message

September 18, 2017

Dear Parents and Guardians:

We are off to a great start here at Foothills! School is in full swing and it has been so rewarding to see the students’ smiling faces each day. I am truly grateful for my job here as principal of Foothills. I truly believe I have the best job in the world! Foothills is a great place to be!

We have been Creating the Magic around Foothills! Kindness has been a big part of our anti-bullying program. Students are recognizing random acts of kindness around the school. Just in two weeks, we’ve recorded over 200 acts of kindness by students and staff and they keep coming! Ask your child what they’ve done to help our Kindness Campaign. The goal is to create a paper chain around the entire school with each kindness act written on each chain. Our first batch of Kindness chains will go up at the end of this month around the inside of the building!

Our drop off and pick up has been running smoothly. We appreciate all of the parents for using the north parking lot for parking and pick up/drop off. We kindly ask that you please do not park in the west parking lot. It is reserved for our faculty and staff, as well as our daycare buses and school buses to pull-through to pick up and drop off kids. We appreciate all of your efforts to keep our students safe by using cross walks, sidewalks, and paying attention to our own amazing 6th grade Safety Patrol and teachers outside. Together we can keep all kids safe!

The students are excited about our “No Fuss” fundraiser sponsored by the PTA. Thank you, parents, for your support. Yes, I have agreed to be taped to the wall if students raise $15,000!
The PTA board has worked hard to find a way to help support important school programs and wants to take the burden off of you and the students.  All of the funds raised from the fundraiser will be given directly back to the school for field trips, Principal’s Pride monthly awards, technology, teacher appreciation, and other programs. We would have a difficult time sponsoring any field trips without the PTA support. Again, thank you for your support!

I am impressed by the dedication, caring, hard work, and love for learning that I see in our staff and students each day. I see it in you, too, parents, and I’m grateful every day to work with you at Foothills Elementary.
