Students at Foothills Elementary participated in the Odyssey of the Mind program. These students worked with a volunteer parent after school each week and had to come up with creative solutions to complex problems. Then, they presented their solution through a performance. We were able to celebrate all these students' hard work and see their performances at our Odyssey of the Mind Showcase.

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!
