The beginning of a new school year means meeting new families in our Foothill community. Come and meet other parents of your child’s grade for a fun night of adult socializing! Click on your specific grade’s link to view party location, RSVP and food/beverage sign-up, if necessary!
We're so excited to see how many families have RSVP'd for our Back to School Picnic, THIS Friday, August 24th from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on the school lawn. If you haven't already, please RSVP so that we can have a good headcount to share with the food trucks who will be on site. If you do not have a Facebook account, you can simply e-mail with the number of people from your household who plan to attend.
Rain or shine, plan to join fellow classmates, parents, teachers and staff for our annual back to school party! We'll have food trucks, music and games. Bring a picnic or grab dinner and treats at one of the local food trucks and come join the fun. There will also be some water activities, so bring a change of clothes if your children would like to participate. Feel free to bring your blankets and lawn chairs, too!
For this year's Back to School Picnic to be a success, we still need a few volunteers! Can you volunteer to take photographs, help sell spirit wear or help clean up afterwards? We'd love for you to lend your time and talent!
Have You Heard About Check-In Day?
The event, formerly known as Meet the Teacher, is new this year and ready to become a Foothill tradition at the start of each new academic year. Scheduled for Tuesday, August 14th from 1-4 p.m., the goal for Check In Day is for families to accomplish several tasks, in an efficient way, prior to the beginning of the academic year, while also decreasing the amount of class time disruptions.
When families arrive at Check-In Day, you'll head to the Check-In Station to receive your checklist. You'll then be able to visit each of the five stations:
For this year's inaugural event, WE NEED YOUR HELP! Can you volunteer an hour of your time at one of the check-in stations or be a friendly face while handing out popsicles? Please click here to volunteer your time and talent.
Questions? We love to help! Simply e-mail with any questions about Check-In Day or anything else Foothill related you might have.
