Dear Foothill Families,


My name is Dr. Joni Howard and I am the new Principal at Foothill Elementary. I want each of you to know I am thrilled to begin my first principalship here at Foothill with all of you. Now, I want to officially welcome you to the 2014-15 school year.  

I am looking forward to a fun filled year planned with wonderful opportunities for the entire family. 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 commitment is to students, and we believe all students can and will learn. The success of our school is a result of the Foothill community: school, home and PTA, working together for the benefit of all 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 volunteering in the classroom, attending a school event, or joining PTA. We just ask you make a commitment to get involved. If you are a new or returning family to the Foothill community, we invite you to join us as we commit to making the 2014-15 school year the best year yet!






Joni Howard, Ed. D.
