WOW! What a wonderful experience the One Book Blitz was for
our children and their families. The winter blast was a huge success and a
lot of fun. It’s always a joy to see our families having fun outside of
normal school hours.
Spring is around the corner, 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 rigorous Tennessee 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.
Beginning next year, 2015-2016, the 3rd grade students will be
taking the TNReady assessment. 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.
