Dear Foothill Families,


My name is Mrs. Susan Helms and I am the Principal at Foothill Elementary.

I want to officially welcome you to the 2013-14 school year.  

This is going to be another great year full of wonderful opportunities for the entire family. I feel very fortunate to be able to work with Mrs. Howard and the entire Foothill staff.  It is an honor for me to be part of such an exceptional school and I am looking forward to getting to know you and having many opportunities to interact with you and your children.


Foothill is a professional learning community and continues its commitment to academic achievement. Our priority is to provide an environment that allows every student to succeed. The success of our school is a result of the Foothill community: school, home and PTA, working together for the benefit of our students. The tradition of strong ties between all of our community members has given Foothill a successful reputation built on the important foundation of collaboration.


In the coming days and weeks you will have many opportunities to get involved in the school whether by being a volunteer in the classroom, attending a school event, or joining PTA. We just ask you make a commitment to get involved. Whether you are a new or returning family to the Foothill community, we invite you to join us as we commit to making the 2013-14 school year the best year yet!
