Kindy 500

Kindergarten students have been busy making cars for the Kindy 500. They were issued a driver’s license and a key in preparation for a “road trip.” They traveled throughout the school visiting the Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore, Betsy Ross, Abraham Lincoln, and the White House. They had a great time learning more about this great country in which we live.


4th Grade County Fair

Fourth-grade students at Foothills Elementary participated in a county fair. Each student researched a county in Utah and presented it to parents, faculty and peers. Great job students!



Several athletes from BYU visited our fourth-grade students at Foothills Elementary. The Buff Don’t Puff program is run by the BYU Provo athletic department. Athletes from BYU take time to visit elementary classes in Utah county encouraging students to stay physically fit inside and out. These athletes have committed to keeping themselves physically fit and drug free. Students enjoyed participating in several activities.

The Treasure Chest of Rare Books from the University of Utah Marriott Library visited our 5th grade classes. They shared a “History of the Book” lesson. Students were able to view and handle rare books and facsimiles.
