Students at Foothills Elementary are participating in a monthly reading program.  Students are keeping track of how many minutes they read each week.  At the end of the week they are given a slip of paper to put in a container for a monthly drawing.  One student from each class was chosen to watch a movie and eat popcorn with the principal.  Congratulations and remember it "Pays to read!"
