FMS Back To School Night
First Day at Azusa High School for Bridge Academy Students
Principal Sam Perdomo from Foothill Middle School escorted the AP Bridge Academy students to meet with Dr. Rubalcaba, Principal of Azusa High School. AP Bridge students are enrolled in multiple World Language classes at Azusa High School and have the opportunity to earn 10, A-G credits while still attending Foothill Middle School.
Foothill Middle School's New Assistant Principal, Mrs. Fonseca
I am excited to be part of the Trojan Team. As the new Assistant Principal, it has been my priority to become acquainted with students, staff, and the many wonderful educational opportunities available to your children. In such a short time, I am thoroughly impressed and proud to be here!
For many of you, I am a familiar face. I worked at Magnolia Elementary School as a classroom teacher and a support teacher for 19 years before promoting to the middle school. My personal story is also a bit unique. I was raised in Azusa and graduated from Azusa High School. I also attended Magnolia Elementary and Foothill Middle School, so it goes without saying that FMS is a very special place to me.
As we journey to the close of the 2015-2016 school year, I want to remind you that there is still much that needs to be accomplished. State testing is ahead and teachers are working double-time to make certain that all students are prepared. Through PBIS, we are working to create a positive and inclusive environment where all students and staff are demonstrating the "Foothill 3" - Safe, Responsible, and Respectful behavior. Remember, we are all part of the same team, and together we need work to ensure your child’s continued success academically and socially.
It is a privilege to serve this community, and I welcome your comments, suggestions, and questions anytime. I look forward to the opportunity to meet each and every one of you, so please don’t hesitate to drop in and say “hello!”
