For our "Throw Back Thursday" class party we decided to go all the way back to the 50's. We dressed up in popular styles from over 60 years ago including poodle skirts and greaser hair. We experienced and learned about record players and typewriters, and had a wicked fun day!

The teachers at Foothills Elementary are the best! They work hard every day to provide a safe and fun learning environment for their students. They also take time during faculty meetings for professional development. Thanks to our STEM teachers who shared how to make and launch rockets. It was a "Blast!"

The Traveling Museum Project’s current exhibition explores Journey Stories.  The artwork featured in this exhibition tells stories about a variety of journeys. Each section focuses on objects from diverse cultures. The first section, Trade and Travel, considers how objects like money and passports help make us mobile and give us the ability to travel. The second section, Spiritual Journeys, explores ways the afterlife is viewed in many cultures as a journey.

Dream Catchers

We had some wonderful visitors help us make Native American Dream Catchers as part of our study of religions of the world.  We learned that all religions use mandalas in their art work.  Mr. and Mrs. Harmer, who are retired teachers from Spanish Fork Junior High, came and helped us learn more about the artistic mandalas of Ancient America.
