4th and 5th grade students had the chance to learn and review keyboarding skills this year from our district Keyboarding specialist, Mrs. Holt. The students who were in the top 10% with speed and accuracy were invited to compete in the district competition (pictured here). These students each got a prize and certificate. Miriam Griffiths (4th grade) and Jocelyn Hurst (5th grade) received the "golden keyboard" award for being the fastest keyboarders in our school. Jocelyn also received a cash prize for placing 13th place out of the entire district! Congrats to everyone!
Congratulations to Jessica Hiatt for being the teacher of the year for Foothills Elementary. You are truly a hero! “Jessica is a true example of how collaboration creates success. She always helps anyone in need because she wants all students to be successful beyond the classroom. Jessica truly knows how to make a difference every day and teaches students to be life-long learners.”
