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.

A Surprise Package from Ruby Bridges

Rachel Trotter is a fourth-grade student at Foothills Elementary. She read a book about Ruby Bridges and decided she wanted to learn more about Ruby. Rachel discovered that Ruby Bridges had started a foundation and wanted to donate some money to the foundation. Rachel wrote a letter to Ruby Bridges letting her know how much she liked her story and wanted to help the foundation by sending $50. A couple of months later Rachel received a package in the mail. Ruby Bridges had sent Rachel a package that contained a letter and a book.

Museum on the Move


Fourth Grade students at Foothills Elementary enjoyed a visit from The Natural History Museum’s outreach program Museum on the Move.  Museum on the Move (MoM) is an inquiry-based program that gives 4th grade students the opportunity to become “scientists” as they sample specimens. This year the students studied snakes, lizards, mammals, and insect specimens to determine what type of food the animals eat (i.e. herbivores, carnivores, omnivores).  


Foothills Footrace Fundraiser

Students at Foothills Elementary are participating in a footrace fundraiser.  Each student will be participating in a half marathon challenge. The students will be running/walking the half marathon during school hours. Students are encouraged to run/walk everyday under the supervision of their teacher to reach their goal of 13 miles by Saturday, October 25th.  Sponsors are asked to pledge a minimum of $5.00.  All proceeds will help fund needed equipment and supplies for the school.  Foothills launched their fundraiser by having every student in the school run/walk a half mile together.

A Magical Assembly

Students and faculty at Foothills Elementary were amazed when the principal, Mrs. Hunstman, magically appeared on stage.  During the opening assembly Mrs. Huntsman went missing so they started the assembly without her. Luckily magician Ricky Brandon was there and he used a little magic and made Mrs. Huntsman appear.
