NOTE FROM THE PRINCIPAL...
All students in second grade are scheduled to participate in GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) testing the first week of February. The only second graders who will not take the test are those whose parents sent us the opt out forms. If you have questions about the specific times the students are testing, please contact your child’s teachers.
Some students in grades 3 - 5 will take the GATE tests as well. These are students who have been recommended by their parents. Students scheduled to take the GATE test in grade 3 will take the test on 2/6 and students scheduled to take the test in grades 4 and 5 will test on 2/7. Testing for grades 3 - 5 will start at 8:30 AM.
If your child is participating in the GATE test, thank you for ensuring your child gets a good night’s sleep prior to testing, eats breakfast and brings a snack to school.
If you have questions about the upcoming GATE testing, please contact your child’s teacher or the office.

Attention 4th Grade Parents
After School Soccer/Futsal Club
We are happy to announce a new program coming to Foskett Ranch. Vision Soccer Training will be coming to our school starting January 29th to offer an after school Soccer/Futsal Club. To sign up see the link below or click here for flyer with more information.
What is Futsal?
Futsal originated in Uruguay and was quickly adopted throughout South America. It is now played all over the world and is growing rapidly in the United States.
Why is it so great?
Futsal is the ultimate game for helping players to develop skillful and creative tactics, foot skills, and ball control. Futsal is a fast-paced and exciting game that creates players that think quickly on the field and perform well under the pressure of a fast moving game. With on the field teams no larger than 5 vs 5, players are constantly involved in the action and touching the ball on a basketball style court, which has less space than a normal soccer field, encouraging control, finesse and high energy!
