Welcome to Foothills Elementary
School for the 2016-17 school year! We
are excited to welcome both new and returning students to another great year of
learning and fun. Great things happen at
Foothills because we have great students, great teachers and staff members, and
a great community that supports our school.
We have a new theme this year that
is based on our school mascot – ROCKY!
Rocky stands for Respect, Organization, Cooperation, Kindness, and do
Your best. We will learn about these 5
traits throughout the school year and will rely on ROCKY to guide us in
everything that we do here at school.
Our teachers at Foothills embrace
excellence in everything that they do.
They love learning and enjoy sharing what they learn with their students
in fun and creative ways. Foothills teachers
have spent their summer vacation attending graduate school, reading, attending
workshops, training session and national conferences preparing to make the
2016-17 school year the best educational experience for all of our
students. We are ready, prepared and
excited to show you what we have learned throughout this school year!
Foothills Elementary communicates
with parents and families in multiple ways.
Weekly announcements are emailed to parents each Friday and include
lunch menus, reminders and upcoming events.
Be sure to check out our FTO Facebook page (Foothills Elementary FTO) and
our Twitter feed (@FHRaccoons) for important news and reminders. Our school website is constantly updated with
news and information (http://www.maryville-schools.org/Domain/14). Our teachers
have also updated their Blackboard pages (the link to the Blackboard login
page is located on our website) with important information about their
classrooms. One of the best ways to stay
informed with your child’s academic progress is to follow their See-Saw
account where students upload pictures, videos and examples of hands-on
activities and projects they create. These
are great ways to stay in touch and keep up to date on your child’s progress as
well as all school activities and events.
We are very thankful for your support
of students and staff at Foothills Elementary School and look forward to another
great school year here at “the base of a mountain of learning.” Remember to always do your Personal Best and
Have a great
