Mr. Shapiro and Ethan on guitars


Hello Foothills Elementary Community,

We had an amazing week of remote learning! I really enjoyed playing guitar with the preschoolers during their holiday performance, and visiting all the classrooms remotely for some Shout Outs and fun activities. Foothills Elementary ROCKS!!

As I reflect on the first semester of school, I am amazed at the great work that has been happening at Foothills during this unprecedented time. Our staff, students, and families worked together to keep each other safe and to ensure that all students were showing growth in their learning. When we pivoted to remote learning, our students, staff, and families showed amazing perseverance. I also want to give a Shout Out to everyone who supported our students including Whiz Kids, Girls on the Run, and our PTA for their support this year so far. We look forward to continued collaboration with our incredible community members. We are so proud of everyone for their hard work. We are truly thankful for our Foothills Family.

Our Information Night last Tuesday really captured this team effort. I want to thank all our students, teachers, staff, community members, and distinguished guests for attending, and for sharing their thoughts about what makes Foothills special. Please make sure to visit the Foothills website to view videos of our staff, students, and community guest speakers. If you know any families with school age children who are interested in attending Foothills during the 2021-22 school year, please direct them to our Foothills Website.

As a Foothills Community, we will continue to Dream, Lead, and Achieve TOGETHER!

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and break. Just a reminder that there is no school for students next Monday and Tuesday. We are looking forward to seeing everyone on January 6th. 

Go Falcons!

Stay safe. 

Josh Shapiro


*I'm proud to say that our CMAS scores went from earning 49% of the total eligible points in 2017 to 67.6% in 2018 (one year).  That is an 18.6% increase.  We also went from an Improvement school to a Performance school.
