Spring is finally here, and I am ready for some warm weather. The faculty, staff, and students are busy preparing for spring assessments. The children are working hard, giving their personal best, and embracing the rigor of the Common Core State Standards. In the months ahead, our K-2 students will be participating in the SAT 10 assessment. Our 3rd grade students will be completing the MIST writing assessment, and the TCAP’s. We will be sending home more information about the required assessments when the dates get closer. Every child at Foothills is special in their own unique way. Please tell your children how special they are, and continue to read with your child each evening.
