A great big thank you to our friends at Casey Middle School who partnered with us for their annual Community Service Day to create an amazing educational mark at Foothill - an incredible map of the United States on the playground near the basketball courts.
Sarah Friend ran with Principal Schuba's map idea and most of the project in one, long day. Custodian Mr. Almir helped figure out the complex, eight-panel template which included a zillion little dots and our friends from Casey saw the vision and connected the dots to create our US outline. We couldn't have done it without them!
During the process, Principal Schuba dressed up in her USA costume to sing the 50 Nifty United States song repeatedly on the loud speaker. We're quite certain that the Casey students know all 50 states in alphabetical order in their sleep now!
We'd also like to send a shout out to Kyle Addington, our new BVSD social studies/health coordinator, who came to the rescue and purchased more brushes and paint in the moment. as well as to custodian Jenny for being on the clean up crew.
The Foothill Elementary PTO welcomes all Foothill parents, students and staff to contribute their thoughts and ideas to our blog.
