The lead roles were filled by 8th graders Guadalupe Gonzalez-Bucio as Scar, Maurice Gutierrez as Simba, Gabriel Castellanos as Mufasa and Jesse Lara as Nala.  7th Grader Ashton Ceballos and 6th Grader Sean Brennan stole the show with their performances as Timon and Pumba, respectively.

We appreciate all the parents that came out to see their children's hard work displayed throughout the classrooms during the 2016-2017 school year. 

As usual, a huge shout out to all the FMS teachers!

Environmental Defender Assembly

 On December 9, 2016 the Environmental Defender Assembly visited Foothill Middle School and taught many kids about the landfills and how trash can be bad for our solar system. The main things they taught were how to reduce, reuse, and recycle. For example, one thing that is recycled is metal, such as cans. Something that is reused is compost, which is soil-like dirt that is very good for growing many healthy plants. Another interesting fact is that garbage tends to be thrown in storm drains and ends up going to the ocean when it's raining hard. This assembly encouraged the younger generation to reduce, reuse, and recycle for a better future. In all, the assembly was a great success and many kids enjoyed it and learned many things about making the world a better place.

Brain Awareness Fair 2016

The APU Brain Awareness Fair visited Foothill Middle School for the 5th year in a row.  "One thing I learned is that when you drink alchohol, your eye slant is different" said 7th grader Jimmy Pedraza. Students learned how brain cells work, the importance of wearing a helmet, electrical impulses, and parts of the brain such as  the five sences: smell, touch, taste, hearing ,and sight.  "It was a good assembly because there were a lot of experiments" 7th grader Britinyssa Mora said.  Overall,  the fair was a success and students left with more knowledge of the brain.

Hola from Mr. Scott!

It is great to be working at Foothill Middle School once again.  As the school's counselor, I look forward to working with the entire Foothill Middle School community as we continue to create a positive academic and social environment.  For the past 26 years, I have worked in the Azusa Unified School District, and I consider it a privilege to now work at a school site that I consider home.  Thank you all for giving me such a warm welcome.
