Principal's Message

National Blue Ribbon School

As the holiday season approaches, I would like to reflect and express gratitude to the children, families, community members, faculty, staff, MCS central office staff, and our school board for making Foothills Elementary School such wonderful place. We strive each day to prepare our students for a lifetime of learning and responsible citizenship. The changes in rigor, relevance, and the implementation of Common Core State Standards has challenged us all to be better educators. The students are working harder in the classroom, experiencing new teaching strategies, learning at a more rigorous pace, and we are seeing the success of their hard work and dedication. Please read with your child each evening, and continue to support Foothills Elementary and Maryville City Schools. I hope that each family has a safe and happy holiday season.
