Welcome to the Festival Foothills Elementary School website. Serving students in kindergarten through eighth grade, Festival Foothills Elementary is located in Buckeye, Arizona, and is in the Wickenburg Unified School District. We are just 10 miles west of Surprise on Bell Road/Sun Valley Parkway, and we are proud and appreciative of our friendly and supportive community members from Buckeye, Surprise, and Wickenburg.
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.
