Principal’s Message

September 1, 2018

This month has been a great month getting settled into our new classrooms!

D track has started and we’re all in full swing! I have loved seeing the children’s happy faces back at school! Foothills is a great place to be! This year our theme is “Throw Kindness Like Confetti!”- we have continued to recognize students and staff in the kind things that happen each day at Foothills! Grade levels will have kindness confetti dance parties each month, literally throwing kindness confetti around while dancing! The 2nd graders loved celebrating this month!

The pick-up and drop off of students have been running much more smoothly, and we appreciate your cooperation and patience each morning and afternoon! It’s great to be in a community that wants the best for our children! Our goal is to keep all kids safe and it is definitely a team effort! The success of all of your efforts is recognized and we appreciate it.

We loved your support during our Back to School nights in July and August for all tracks. The attendance by parents and guardians was amazing this year and we appreciate the support! During Back to School night, our PTA was able to announce their plans for the year! On October 1st, the PTA has plans for a Fun Run/Carnival Fundraiser! Notes will go home soon on how to order wristbands, which are $12 if they are pre-ordered, and $15 if they are purchased that night. There will be bounce houses, games, and food trucks! We look forward to seeing everyone there! Invite your family and friends! It’ll be a great event! All money raised during the fundraiser will go towards field trips- their goal is to supply each grade level with two field trips!

Thank you so much for your continued support! Our teachers work so hard each day and we sure do appreciate them! We love working with your students and all of the support that you give us each day! I believe it is a team effort to educate children and I’m so lucky to be a part of it here at Foothills! We have the best community!
