Foothills Falcons learned what it means to be "Cougar Built" during a schoolwide assembly. BYU athletes and members of their Dunk Team visited the school with Cosmo Cougar.  They taught everyone that being "Cougar Built" means that we are Built to Love, Built to Learn, Built to Work, and Built to Connect.  They showed off their amazing skills and abilities as the students roared with applause.

I AM...a Rockin' Assembly

Submitted by elyssa.marzan on Wed, 01/26/2022 - 13:23

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.

Kindness Week

Submitted by elyssa.marzan on Wed, 01/26/2022 - 13:18

Foothills students are excited to celebrate Kindness Week.  Each day the have been given a mission to perform an act of service around the school.  So many students have really taken the acts of service above and beyond to show how much they care by picking up trash, making new friends, or saying hi and smiling to someone in need.  Great job Foothills Falcons!  Keep being positive and showing kindness to others.

Congratulations to these 2nd grade students who have been working so hard learn their addition and subtraction facts fluently. These students have earned 100% proficiency on Reflex Math.  Reflex Math is a website many teachers use to help students become fluent in addition/subtraction and multiplication/division facts.  Students love the interactive games and being able to track which facts they know by heart, and which ones they still need to work on. Great job, Isaac, David, Nadia, Josh, and Kenedi!

Multiplication and Division Rockstars!

Submitted by elyssa.marzan on Mon, 12/28/2020 - 10:12

All of their hard work has finally paid off!  4th grade has been working hard each day to pass of their multiplication and division facts,  It's tough to get them all memorized and recite them or write them down, espeically if they're being timed which turns up the pressure.  Congratulations to these 4th grade students who have finally been able to pass each and everyone of them off! It was hard work, but they kept at it until they were able to SOAR through them.
