I am happy to
be back for my second year as principal at Foose School! We have been busy planning all summer to make
this our best year yet! This year we
will continue some of the great things that have been happening at Foose: our
monthly PBIS ticket events (pajama day, dance party, ice cream social, and
dress up days), and our evening family events (literacy and math nights, Winter
Wonderland, and spring concerts). This year we will also be challenging all of
our students to become masters of sight words and math facts. We’ll have individual and homeroom challenges
all year to keep students competing and learning.
We look forward
to collaborating with you to provide learning and enrichment activities and
events through the PTA and community partnerships. Please look for additional communication
throughout the year on our website, in the mail, on the Harrisburg School
District Facebook page, and through the Global Call system. If you have ideas or want to become more
involved please give us a call or stop by!
