I AM...a Rockin' Assembly

What a rockin' assembly Foothills students got to enjoy on Tuesday morning.  Mr. Gentry Youd, former 6th grade teacher and author of King of the Court, inspired students with his book that he wrote about making new friends, and treating others with kindness.  He shared his I AM slogan, which stands for Integrity, Ambition, and Morals, and explained how these three words can uplift and inspire everyone in a positive way.  After, the school was treated to a mini rock concert by Poolhouse, an awesome band that performs at school and sings songs about kindness and respect.
