Mrs. Elliott’s class has loved learning about ancient China. They spent time learning about the archeological find of the Terracotta Army created by the first Chinese emperor for whom China was named, Qin (pronounced Chin) in the year 246 BCE. Then, on January 31st, the students celebrated Lunar New Year by performing a lion dance in all the classrooms of the school.

Last week the students at Foothills Elementary participated in a Fit Falcon Week. This activity was done to help the children focus on other activities besides watching TV and playing with other electronics. They were given several activities such as walk/running, jumping jacks, sit-ups, push-ups, and air squats to do each night at home, and repeats of these at school. They were also given some extra ones to do like try a veggie that you had never tried before, encouraging them to eat healthy foods.
We had another successful "It Pays to Read" assembly. Many students won prizes, books, and money. Great job and keep reading!
Congratulations to Keri Minson in receiving the Classified Employee Award. Thanks for your dedication and hard work. You help make Foothills a great place to be.
The students and faculty enjoyed the watching men do tricks and stunts on their bikes. They talked about the importance of bike safety and to ALWAYS wear a helmet.
Congratualtions to our December Foothills Falcons!
