Sign up for free text message or email reminders from Mrs. Raynes! Never miss another important event again! Simply text @mrsraynes to (657) 212-4385 (a third-party number). This is a one-way communication from me to you only. Neither your phone number nor my phone number will ever be revealed to anyone. Please note that this is my PRIMARY form of sending notices to my parents.
Please make every effort to attend Parent Information Night. Teachers will be introduced in the Multi-Purpose Room, then parents will be allowed to visit classrooms after a brief PTA meeting. You will learn about all the things your first grader will be learning and doing this coming year. I will also answer any questions you may have. I look forward to meeting you!
Paper dolls were sent home on the first day of school and are due back on Monday, August 12th. Please decorate the paper doll in such a way that it reflects your child's hobbies or interests. Students will present their dolls for Art and Oral Language grades.
Just a reminder that your child's poster about themselves is due on Monday, August 19th. Please DO NOT add any 3D objects (buttons, glitter, sequins, embellishments, etc) as the posters will be laminated for Open House (flat stickers and photos are fine). Students will present their posters in class for an Art and Oral Language grade.
Foothill Elementary has several students with moderate to severe food allergies. Effective immediately, treats will not be allowed to be brought to school for birthday celebrations. If you wish to bring something to share with the class to celebrate your child's birthday, please consider non-food items such as pencils, stickers, or small toys. Also, if you donate a book to our library, your child's birthday will be announced during the morning announcements! A book plate will be placed inside the book as well, letting everyone know who donated that book!
Students have the opportunity to run before school, during lunch recess, and during P.E. to reach their goal of 100 miles over the entire school year. Last year, almost every student in Mrs. Raynes' class reached at least 25 miles and earned their 100-Mile t-shirt. Several completed their 100 miles and earned their medals. Your child can, too! It only costs $10 to join.
Foothill is having a school-wide competition to see which class can get the most PTA memberships! Please register yourself and your child (and other family members, friends, neighbors, etc.). Memberships cost $7.00 each, and a membership in your child's name allows them to participate in special events. Attending the meetings is not required, but you are welcome to attend if you wish. Please help us win with the most memberships in the school!
