March 1, 2018
Dear Foothills Families:
We’re so excited for this time of year! We have started to see so much growth in each of our students! The teachers have worked so hard throughout the year to help all students succeed! We appreciate your support as parents! We believe that it is a team effort to help all students succeed!
March will be a busy month for us! Our Chinese New Year celebration for parents will be this Thursday, March 1st at 2:00 pm. We can’t wait to see what our DLI Chinese students have been working on, and to celebrate the Chinese culture that is taught by our wonderful Chinese teachers!
Parent-Teacher conferences for C and D tracks will be Wednesday and Thursday, March 7th and 8th. You may now sign up for a conference time in Skyward.
5th grade Maturation Programs will be held March 12th at 2:30pm here at the school. Parents are invited.
Kindergarten Round Up (orientation) will be held on Friday, March 16th at 2:00pm. We can’t wait to meet our future Foothills Mustangs!
Our School Community Council (SCC) is having a fundraiser to raise money for Science and Technology supplies and materials for our students. They will be selling Entertainment books (formerly Happenings books) at upcoming school events, and can be purchased for $20. They will be available to purchase in the office. There is information coming soon on how to purchase online using credit cards. If you have any questions, you may email the SCC at email@example.com.
Parents, we can all agree that student safety is a #1 priority for everyone! Please remember some important drop off and pick up procedures. We want all of our students to be safe:
*Keep the north drop off lane moving; please follow safety patrol and teacher instructions to pull forward or stop. Please pull all the way forward to the benches.
*The north parking lot (front of the school) is not an unloading zone. If you choose to use the parking lot, please park your car in a designated parking spot and walk your child to the crosswalk. The front crosswalk is the only place where anyone should be crossing the drop off lane.
*The west parking lot is reserved for school buses, daycare vans/buses, and faculty parking. Please do not use this area to drop off or pick up students.
*Remind your student to use sidewalks and crosswalks when walking to school. Students should not be crossing through parking lots without an adult.
Again, student safety is our top priority! By working together, I know that the drop off/pick up procedure can run smoothly!
Parents, we value your opinion and would love for you to take our Culture and Climate Survey. Please go to https://uepc.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_b3pa40U69aHEoZf to take the survey. You have until March 23rd to take the survey.
Thank you for all that you do to support us here at Foothills so that all students are safe, happy, and learning!
