SEPTEMBER 22, 2016

The PTA has a fun & exciting fundraiser for 2016! Help us raise money by sponsoring your student in our BOLD & FREE CrossFit Challenge! Our CrossFit Challenge is like a Jog-a-thon, but so much more fun! Instead of running laps, students will participate in six active & fun activities. Our CrossFit Team will pump them up by showing students how to be BOLD & FREE by staying active & healthy!

In addition to the great things PTA funds go toward, this year our goal is to raise enough money to pay for an additional Mobile Computer Lab!

The easiest way to help your student raise donations is through email.  Cut and paste the below email to send to family & friends to sponsor your child:

New School Spirit Wear and First Day Sales

We are excited to offer 2 new styles of spirit wear this year! In addition to the t-shirts we have had in previous years, we will have available for order a baseball-style tee and a hoodie!

On the first day of school (July 26 for A, B, and C tracks and August 15 for D track), we will have our usual style of t-shirt for sale (we will accept cash, check, or credit card).

We will also have a limited number of baseball tees in adult sizes at that time. Order forms for baseball tees and hoodies will be available. These items can also be ordered on our website. The deadline for these orders is September 1. In order for us to get these items delivered before the weather gets too cold (we hope), we will need to place the order at that time and no late orders will be accepted unfortunately. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. **If you have multiple children at Foothills, only one child's name/grade/teacher is necessary.**

D track families, don't worry, we have a separate set of shirts waiting for you. See you in August!

SAFETY FIRST - Drop off and pick up reminders

Just a friendly reminder to parents about drop-off and pick-up rules at the school as more students are being driven to school in the winter months:

- Please ONLY use the roundabout on the North side of the school to drop-off and pick-up students.

- Please pull all the way forward before stopping to drop-off students.

- If you need to watch your student walk into the school, please park in the parking lot and watch from there, or park and accompany your student.

- Do not use the parking lot just to drop students off without parking. This is what the roundabout is for.

- Do not get out of your car in the roundabout. If you need to exit your vehicle to assist children, please park in the parking lot.

- Carpooling with others will help cut down on school traffic, try it!

thank you! we want all the students at Foothills to be safe!
