Mrs. Elliott’s class has loved learning about ancient China. They spent time learning about the archeological find of the Terracotta Army created by the first Chinese emperor for whom China was named, Qin (pronounced Chin) in the year 246 BCE. Then, on January 31st, the students celebrated Lunar New Year by performing a lion dance in all the classrooms of the school. The students also made lucky red envelopes for each student in the school and put a surprise inside each envelope to wish every child "fu" (luck) and wished all students “Gong Hei Fat Choi” (Happy New Year).
Congratulations to our January Fantastic Falcons!

Last week the students at Foothills Elementary participated in a Fit Falcon Week. This activity was done to help the children focus on other activities besides watching TV and playing with other electronics. They were given several activities such as walk/running, jumping jacks, sit-ups, push-ups, and air squats to do each night at home, and repeats of these at school. They were also given some extra ones to do like try a veggie that you had never tried before, encouraging them to eat healthy foods.
