On Thursday, April 1, 2010, both faculty and students at Foothills Elementary carefully planned and carried out an April Fool's joke on Principal, Mr. Schollenberger. It was decided that anyone who wanted to participate would come to school dressed like Mr. Schollenberger-white shirt, tie, and dress pants. Fake Mr. Schollenberger ID badges were also given to faculty members--thanks to his lovely secretaries. Participation from both faculty and students was incredible and created lots of laughter and second glances. Thank you, Mr.

“This March, as our nation celebrates Women’s History Month, a special group of women gathered in Washington, filling the massive Emancipation Hall of the new Capitol Visitors Center to receive long overdue recognition for their pioneering service to our nation during World War II. These inspiring heroines were the first women to fly military aircraft and blazed a trail in the sky that opened the door for today’s women military pilots.
