Playground Pals Bus Stop
Foothill Elementary PTA is pleased to announce a program called Playground Pals Bus Stop (PPBS) which will take place during lunch recess 3 times a week, on Monday, Tuesday and Friday. This program was implemented 2 years back and has been very successful during recess.   
4th and 5th grade students get the opportunity to apply and be an up stander on campus.  They also act as role models for students throughout the school day encouraging positive behavior - Be respectful, Be safe, Be accountable. The idea is to expand their role of a Playground pal to the whole day so that they can be available to help students and not limited to just recess/lunch time.  Read more. . . .   Be sure to see the PPBS pictures here.
