Foothill MS Community Memo

Good afternoon Foothill Community.
Hoping you all have had a wonderful Monday to start this Fall weather week! Students are back on campus tomorrow to start the 2nd quarter. For our 7th and 8th graders there is no change in their schedule, while 6th graders that have a Rotation class on their schedule they will 'rotate' somewhere new (see below to know where to go). On Friday the 1st quarter grades are official in Aeries/Homelink. Email teachers first with any questions or concerns.
This Friday we are hosting an after school Fall social in the quad, 2:45-4pm. FREE ADMISSION, CRAFTS AND GAMES! There will be opprtunities to socialize and enjoy the activities, as well as food for sell (pizza, cotton candy, Gatorade). The event is closed to Foothill MS students only and will be supervised within the campus. Students must be picked or travel home when the event is over at 4pm.
Take care and be well,
