Principal's Message

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 (https://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 Nothing Less!                                           

Have a great school year!

Dr. Dalton
