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.

Triad 2 Lunch with the Principal
Foothill students enjoyed their triad lunch with the principal. Even though some kids entered a lot of trojan tickets for the raffle, they still didn't think they would actually win. They were pleasantly surprised when they did. The winners of the raffle were Riley Sage, a 7th grader who entered 50 tickets, Anahi Jimenez, a 6th grader, who entered 30, Giselle Valencia,a 6th grader, who entered 20, Adrian Castaneda, a 6th grader, who entered 5, and Chistopher Pica didn't enter any tickets, but still had some from the last triad and won for a second time! Good job, Trojans!

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.

Greetings from Mr. Perdomo!
I would like to welcome you to the start of the 16-17 school year! I am eagerly anticipating yet another successful and rewarding year. I am looking forward to working with an amazing and dedicated staff, students and our parents and community to provide an exceptional educational experience for Foothill students.
Hello from Mrs. Fonseca!
Greetings, Foothill Families!
We had an exciting first couple days as we welcomed our Trojans to the 2016-2017 school year. Students came ready to learn and teachers were prepared to teach! I observed many smiling faces ready to make this a great year. The Foothill Staff has been hard at work to promote a postive environment where students are motivated and empowered to meet the rigorous demands of academic excellence. We teach our students to practice Respectful, Responsible, and Safe behavior, so they have the tools required to be successful in high school and beyond. At Foothill Middle School, we believe ALL students CAN and WILL achieve greatness!
It is my pleasure to serve this very special community, and I am looking forward to working with you this year. Your input is valuable and I hope you will explore the many opportunities available to become involved at Foothill Middle School. We are part of the same team, and together we can work to ensure your child's continued success academically and socially.
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.
