Principal’s Message

November 2018

During the month of October, students and staff were able to participate in Red Ribbon Week. Students learned about the harmful effects that certain drugs can have on our lives. Some students were able to create signs and posters to put around our school to teach other students. They remind us about making good, healthy choices for our bodies so that we can be strong and healthy.

On October 1st, we had our first Fall Carnival and it was a great success! We were able to raise funds to provide more field trips for students! We appreciate the community support we received during this great event! We also appreciate the PTA and all that they do for students and staff!

We were also able to participate in parent-teacher conferences in October. It was so great to see the parents of A, B, and C tracks. It’s great to celebrate accomplishments with students. We appreciate your support as we strive to make gains for all students. The teachers work very hard each day! We appreciate all that they do for students. We know that educating students takes a village and we can’t do it without you, parents. We look forward to seeing D track parents for parent-teacher conferences November 13th and 14th. You can now go on Skyward to make your appointments. Please call the office at 801-302-8599 if you have trouble scheduling your appointment. During those two days of D track conferences, all parents on ABCD tracks are welcome to come to the Book Fair that will be held in the library. Your purchases help support our school!

As I reflect on the month of November, and this time of year to be grateful for families and friends, I’m very thankful for our Foothills families and community! We truly have a wonderful community! Without the support of everyone, we would not be able to do our jobs in educating your children both in academics and in other areas. We have such high hopes for your students!

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your friends and family! Thank you again for all of your support as we work to educate all students!
