Open Enrollment

Preschool/Extended Care Registration


Hello Falcons,

Its hard to believe we are already in the 4th quarter. We have many activities coming up including AIMS testing, Spirit Week, Student Council Talent Show & Ice Cream Social, Spring Concerts, and a PTA fundraiser. Please read through the newsletter, located on the news page, to stay up-to-date on all that is happening. 

Our Signature program committee is still continuing to research options for our school for the 2014/2015 school year. Thank you to all who completed the parent survey. The results showed that you value an integrated program focused mostly on math, followed by science in science place. You also expressed that you would value the skills of critical thinking and problem solving.

As you know, Festival Foothills is set to benefit from the district’s conversion of two other schools into District Sponsored Charter Schools. This issue is currently being discussed within the Arizona state government as they prepare their budget. Thanks to all who contacted your representatives on behalf of our school. Your input is working, and we will continue to keep you updated. Hopefully, we will get to have this program next year.

Don’t forget, you can always find out more information about our school our Facebook page and website.

Take Care,

Christina Strauss
