NOTE FROM THE PRINCIPAL...

Yesterday's spelling bee went very well. Students remained in the competition for many more rounds than in previous years. Our two finalists took a written test to send to the Placer County Office of Education (PCOE) to see if they qualify for the county bee in the Spring. PCOE will let us know the county finalists next month.


The weather forecast includes rain, heavy at times, during this week. Thank you for your patience, diligence to student safety and slower pace during drop off and pick up during these days.


iReady diagnostic assessments are complete, and students made a lot of progress towards their goals in reading and math. Students can now resume their math and reading practice.


Spirit wear Wednesday is going well. This week's class with the highest percentage of students wearing school shirts, burgundy or grey is Mrs. Sordahl's class. Congratulations!

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!


Program 1 - Soccer

All Tuesdays - Jan 29, Feb 5, 12, 19 - 2:50 to 3:50pm

Program 2 - Futsal

All Tuesdays - Mar 19, 26, Apr 2, 9 - 2:50 to 3:50pm
