Winter Band Performance
Foothill Middle School Instrumental Music Program
The Foothill Middle School Bands have had an exciting and performance filled 1st semester this year. The Wind Ensemble and the Symphonic Band combined for a concert on October 10th for the Azusa Golden Days Carnival at Memorial Park, kicking off the whole celebratory weekend. Together, they also performed for the annual Veteran’s Day ceremony, honoring our many service men and women in the community. Mayor Rocha himself has invited the Foothill Bands to play at this event for the last four years. While juggling the repertoire for these concerts, the Foothill Band students have also had much interaction with the Azusa High School Aztec Marching Band, performing pep tunes with them at the AHS vs. GHS football game. Select students also attended the West Covina HS Band Field Show Tournament with the Aztec Band to obtain first-hand experience in the band competitive circuit, further prepping them for high school.
Most recently, the Foothill Bands presented their Holiday Concert on December 11th. At 3:30pm, the Beginning Band demonstrated their newly developed skills with performances of tunes such as Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, William Tell Overture, Jingle Bells, and Old MacDonald Had A Band. The evening featured the Symphonic Band with holiday favorites such as, Let it Snow, the Wind Ensemble with Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and Jingle-Bell Rock, and the Jazz Band performed Baby, It’s Cold Outside, and a hard-hitting swing shuffle titled, Dashing Through The Snow.
The Foothill Instrumental Music Program definitely deserves their two week holiday vacation, but they are truly looking forward to a thrilling festival season this upcoming spring!

Message from Principal
Dear Foothill Middle School Families,
As the new principal of Foothill Middle School, I would like to welcome you to the start of the 15-16 school year! I am eagerly anticipating a successful and rewarding year, and look forward to working with the dedicated staff, parents, and community to provide an exceptional educational experience for Foothill students.
For those of you who I have yet to have the pleasure of meeting, please allow me to introduce myself. I have worked in the Azusa Unified School District for over 22 years as an assistant principal at Gladstone High School and a mathematics teacher at both Azusa High School and here at Foothill Middle School. In addition, I have coached cross country, basketball, football, track and field, softball at both the high school and middle school levels.
I recognize that the start of middle school can signal feelings of both excitement and anxiety. I want to thank you for entrusting your children to Foothill’s staff and assure you of our commitment to your child receiving a highly-engaging educational experience, in a safe and nurturing environment. We are excited to build partnerships with our families and support you, as your child begins the next chapter of their academic journey.
I am excited and honored to join the Foothill family for what I know will be an amazing school year. I have an open door policy, and welcome your questions, concerns, and input at any time.
Proud to be back as a Trojan,
