Principal's Message

Foothills Families,

Welcome to a new school year at Foothills Elementary School!  Foothills has a great tradition of excellence because of its great teachers, great students and great families!  We are excited to welcome you to back to school and look forward to another great school year.

As you enter the front doors of the school you will notice the new secure entrance.  All students and parents arriving in the morning before 7:40 AM will enter through the doors to the right.  Once school begins, everyone will enter through the doors to the left.  Please press the button on the camera pad mounted to the brick wall to request entrance into the office.  After school is dismissed, beginning at 3:15 PM parents will enter the doors to the right to pick up students from the Adventure Club.  These changes are designed to make it safe for all students and staff during the school day. 

Maryville City Schools iReach program has been fully implemented for this school year!  Each student in grades K-3 will have an iPad to use while at school each and every day.  Teachers are excited to integrate technology with instruction on a daily basis to create limitless learning opportunities for 21st century learners.  Parents and students are asked to review the iReach introductory video and sign the Responsible Use Policy (RUP) prior to students receiving an iPad.           

Communication is key to developing and maintaining a good relationship with parents and families.  Please check out our FTO Facebook page (Foothills Elementary FTO) and our new Twitter feed (@FHRaccoons).  Our school website is constantly updated with news and information. Our teachers are working to develop their Blackboard pages (the link to the Blackboard login page is located above).  These are great ways to stay in touch and keep up to date on all of the school events and activities!

Thank you for your continued support of students and staff at Foothills Elementary School!  We are looking forward to a great year at Foothills – the base for a mountain of learning!

Have a great school year!

Dr. Dalton
