Sixth-Grade Science Fair

Maureen Bushman

On Thursday, November 8th, 2012 Sixth-grade students at Foothills Elementary gathered in the auditorium for the annual Science Fair.  It was a very successful event with all students displaying a project and explaining their experimentation and results to parents and other classes at Foothills.  High School students from Salem Hills were invited to judge the Science Fair and choose participants for the District Science Fair. It was a very informative and fun event.

The First-grade students at Foothills loved learning about apples on Apple Day. We did apple math, read about apples, wrote apple stories and best of all ate apples.

Halloween Readers' Theater

Joan Lunceford

The students in Mrs. Lunceford's class sure enjoyed performing their Halloween Readers' Theater for their parents. Many laughs and giggles could be heard from the parents as the children use expression and lots of personality to portray their character.
