Valentine Cookies

Students at Foothills Elementary have been working hard and reading everyday.  Several students were rewarded for their reading and were chosen to decorate Valentine cookies with the principal.  It was a lot of fun and very yummy!

Sixth-Grade Field Trip

On Friday, February 1st, the sixth-grade students traveled to Salt Lake City to visit the Clark Planetarium.  The students enjoyed looking at the many "hands-on" exhibits about space and space travel.  The "Science on a Sphere" presentation about Earth's seasons was very interesting.  The Hansen Dome experience was like traveling through space in your own private spaceship!  After eating lunch in the Grand Hall at the Gateway, the 6th graders climbed aboard the buses and returned back to school.  This was a great day to learn all about 6th grade science in a very visual way.
