Letter from the FAePTO President
Welcome from the FAePTO Board!
Welcome Parents & Students to Foothills Academy for the 2013-2014 school year. We are so excited about this coming school year. With the opening of our Kindergarten this fall we have twice as many new students and families to welcome to our school! There is much to do this year, and we are looking forward to offering many fun events and volunteer opportunities for everyone in the Foothills Academy community. We had a great time last year! Here are just a few of the things we were able to fund for our teachers, children, and school…
- Funds for the teachers to set up their classrooms!
- Funds for our teachers to attend conferences!
- Supplemental curriculum materials !
- Books for the school library!
- iPad donation for Support Fee incentive!
- Playground equipment!
- Musical education!
Of course this year we would love to continue this support, as well as take on a whole new list of projects!!! The board will continue to operate with two goals in mind. The first goal is to increase our sense of community within the school by hosting events for the entire family! We want to ensure that our children can really reap the benefits of attending a small school. Our second goal is to fundraise for our beloved school in ways that are easy and fun. Here are some of the events/ fundraising activities for this year:
- Box Tops
- Orderlunches.com – buying lunch online with Bad Donkey, Rubio’s, and Subway
- Attending social events – FAEP Fall Turkey Trot, Pancake Breakfast and Spring Renaissance Fair
