New Marquee is Finally Here!!!

Fort Foote Family we did it! We would like to thank parents, teachers, community members, and administrators for the collaborative efforts to assist the Fort Foote purchase our new Marquee. I think it’s no secret that our old sign was 0nly in great need of repair, but it was past time for a new sign. Well not to be outdone by the updates in the area, the PTA committed to purchasing an attractive LED state of the arts marquee. This marquee was reflective of the standard we think our students are entitled along with a great representation of the school pride exhibited throughout the community.

So now, there’s no excuse to miss that next PTA meeting or Parents Conference. In addition this marquee will be one of the continuing methods that the administration and the PTA will use to ensure that we are providing the parents and the community with effective communications about our students and school.

We look forward to our “Official Ribbon-Cutting” Ceremony which we are scheduling and hope for you to come out and join us!!

Take a look at our 2nd and 3rd graders from last year -Making Their Own Bread!

The second and third graders participated in a wonderful event last  May for the second time at Fort Foote Elementary.  The school and the PTA co-sponsored an in-house field trip for our 2nd and 3rd graders by  bringing in  The Reeds and Breadmaking EZ (www.breadmakingez.com) . It was truly a site to see as over 80 kids were seated at the cafeteria tables that held plastic bowls, measuring cups and wooden rulers. Each table was lined with white paper so the flour, yeast, salt, brown sugar and water could be rolled to make dough.

The session included an interactive, interdisciplinary, hands- on approach to learning where the kids learn about health and nutrition, math and science while having fun making their own loaf of wheat bread, which they were able to take home to share with their families. There were teachers and parents present to assist the children which made for a most memorable event. The PTA has committed to sponsoring this  an annual event each year for the 2nd and 3rd graders.  Here’s a special video of the kids kneading dough which is sure to put a smile on your face:

Here are some other great shots from the day:
