The Foothill Mission
Our STS afterschool program at Foothill Elementary is a fun and safe program designed to help students reach academic goals and enjoy enrichment programs that emphasize the school day curriculum. The whole staff works hard every day in attempts to lead these 1st-5th graders towards a rewarding future by giving them a safe environment to learn and socialize with peers after school.
At Foothill we like to give the students a variety of opportunities to express themselves in their unique types of learning styles with our various activities planned throughout the year. We have our Winter Activities followed by the Spelling Bee contest, cooking days, dance group, Read to Lead, another event the students love every year is our grand Talent Show, and to end our year we have our End of the Year Celebrations that vary every year. Students love participating in our eventful & versatile activities that are designed for every grade. With this coming year we would like to include more outside activities for the students such as field trips! Some local field trips that are in mind for the year are: bowling, movie theaters, ice skating, and Small World Park’s Butterfly exhibit. Along with these great events and activities, we have our sports for those more active and competitive students, including soccer and track. Our Foothill Afterschool program encourages the teaching and learning of all the valuable life skills in everything we do. As a foothill family we all as one, Staff, students, family and friends, come together to come up with better and new ideas to keep everyone involved and enjoy every minute of our learning environment.
Daily schedules of the programs are designed specifically for each grade level. The youth development leaders chose their own enrichment activities to exhibit with the class. Every day of the week is given a specific topic: Monday is math, Tuesday is language arts, Wednesday is Science, Thursday is Health, and Friday is Visual Arts. With these topics the students explore a wide range of subjects with fun and creative activities. The most important part of our daily schedule is our homework hour where students are able to get help from their youth development leaders. Each day students are served a snack and dinner. Also, to focus on the importance of health, daily schedules include a physical activity portion in the program.
Our main goal and objective at Foothill is to help every student excel in academics by giving them a place where they feel safe and excited to learn! We will work closely with the teachers of your children to ensure we are helping with everything we can. To help us create successful Foothill students we invite you to enroll you student in our afterschool program! We hope to see new face as well as our previous students!
