Ancient Civilizations

Mrs. Elliott's class has been very busy learning about the ancient civilizations that arose in the Fertile Crescent. 

Student  made Cuneiform tablets with ancient symbols while learning about the Sumerians. They also recreated the Great Pyramids at Giza, Books of the Dead, and mummies in their Sarcophagi while learning about Egypt!  


Marathon Magicians

Several students (K-6) at Foothills Elementary took the challenge to finish a half marathon on their own. All students at Foothills completed a half marathon here at school over the past two months, but these students completed another half marathon at home. Way to go!

Salem Witches Run


Several students from Foothills Elementary participated in the annual Salem Witches Run.  The Salem Witches Run is a fundraiser for the SHHS Track and Cross Country Teams. This year SHHS teamed up with the Elementary Schools in Salem to promote exercise and healthy habits while creating a “Unity in the Community.”  Students could choose to run/walk the 1 mile or 5k. Way to go Falcons!

Pamela Roberts

Mrs. Roberts loves to play the violin. This summer some very generous people, including the Nebo Education Foundation, donated a sizable sum of money so Mrs. Roberts could share this incredible instrument with her class. Mrs. Roberts purchased 30 violins through Boothe Brothers Music and along with several other instrument donations has been able to provide a violin for each student in her class.

Be The Magic

Bob Moore-Pilot & Sarah Ward-Photographer

'Be The Magic' is the theme for Foothills Elementary School this year. The students are engaged in doing 'Little Wows' for others each day. Our goal is to 'Be The Magic' for someone who needs a little magic cheer! Great job students, faculty and staff for helping make this activity magical.

We appreciate Mr. Bob Moore, the pilot and Mrs. Sarah Ward, 1st grade teacher and photographer for capturing this spectacular event.

Johnny Appleseed Day

Second-grade students at Foothills Elementary enjoyed a day of measuring/graphing apples, writing apple stories, and making applesauce to celebrate Johnny Appleseed day. Each student even made thier own Johnny Appleseed hat.
