Please make every effort to attend Parent Information Night on Thursday, August 11th at 5:30 pm. Teachers will be introduced in the Multi-Purpose Room, then parents will be allowed to visit classrooms after a brief Principal meeting and 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 will be sent home on the first day of school and are due back on Monday, August 15th. 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.
We will be taking our Fall Pictures on Thursday, September 1st. Watch for order forms coming home soon.

Foothill Elementary has several students with moderate to severe food allergies. 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 Ms. 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. PTA Memberships help pay for field trips, art programs, family fun nights, and much more! 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!
