Third-grade students at Foothills Elementary have been learning about character traits. Each student was asked to write about a main character from a book they were reading a home, and then they decorated a pumpkin to look like that main character.
BYU came to Foothills Elementary on September10, 2013 to do their ‘Cougar Strong’ presentation for the fourth grade classes. The program talked about being drug free and keeping your body healthy. BYU handed out BYU shirts to every student. This is a picture of Mr. Haskell’s class showing off their ‘Cougar Pride.’
Wesley Cope, a fourth-grade student at Foothills Elementary, entered and won the drawing contest for Nebo School District's National School Lunch Week. The theme was "My Favorite Place in the USA." Wesley's favorite place is the Kennecott Copper Mine (Bingham Canyon Mine) right here in Utah.
The SHHS grade school mentoring program was designed to help the students enrolled in Mr. Jamsa's sociology class have a real world experience in observing the social interactions of elementary aged students. Mentoring also provides the SHHS students an opportunity to develop leadership skills as they teach and encourage younger students who need the extra support from older peers.
SHHS Wrestling Coach, T.J. Brindley, and several wrestlers came to Foothills and put on an assembly for the studentbody. SHHS Wrestling Team Captains each talked about the values of hard work, determination, building self-confidence, and never giving up on your dreams. They also talked about the importance of taking care of our bodies by eating right and exercising. The students enjoyed participating by trying some of the exercises the wrestlers do to keep their bodies fit. Thanks SHHS wrestlers for coming. We had a wonderful time.
As a reward for their daily reading several students were chosen to have popcorn and watch a movie with the principal.
Congratulations to our September Fantastic Falcons!

SHHS Football had a service day and several team player came to Foothills Elementary to tape squares on the basketball standards. Students have enjoyed playing basketball with the aid of the squares. One student said, "It is easy to make a basket now." Thanks to the SHHS Football Team for your service.
We had over 50 applications for student council this year. How exciting to have so many students want to make Foothills Elementary a better place to be. Each applicant was asked to write a one page essay on how they could be a productive student council member. The essays were fabulous and made selecting 12 student council members a difficult thing to do.
