Message From The Principal


Dear Foster City Families,

This week at Foster City Elementary School, we have several opportunities for you to get involved in the school and meet other families. For many of you, you have been seeing each other for years at these events, as well as at the soccer fields and the grocery store! For others, you only know the other parents standing with you in front of the classroom at drop off and pick up. As you all know from life experiences, it takes a while to feel part of any new community. Kids tend to do this rather quickly, but as adults, it takes us a little longer. I encourage all of you to take advantage of the volunteer opportunities as well as attend our community events.

Below are links and details about upcoming events, as well as additional important information.

PTA Parent Education Night  -- Wednesday, December 12th from 6:00-7:30 PM (MPR)

One way to become part of our community is to attend the first of our PTA Parent Education series on Wednesday evening (12/12) at 6:00 - 7:30 PM in our MPR. We will be viewing the film Angst, with a panel discussion afterward. Click on the link below for tickets and more information.

Scholastic Book Fair (School Library) - Tuesday - Saturday (various times)

Throughout this week, you can support our school by shopping at our Scholastic Book Fair. Your children may already have a short list for you as they visited the fair today during school. The fair is open after school everyday this week beginning Tuesday, and on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6-8 PM. For our TK/K parents, we will be open on Tuesday afternoon at 12:30. On Wednesday, we will be open at 12:30 for everyone. We are also open on Saturday morning (12/15) during our Pancake Breakfast!

Pancake Breakfast -- Saturday 12/15 from 8-11 AM

The Pancake Breakfast (Saturday 12/15 from 8-11 AM)  is a great opportunity to support the school and get to know other families. It’s very casual as far as dropping in for breakfast at any convenient time. I especially like this event because I get to sit down with as many of you as possible and get to know you better. For tickets see link below.

District-Wide Disaster Drill -- Wednesday 12/12

See attached letter for information about our District-Wide Disaster Drill.

Thank You!

Thank you to Rachna Mittal for her work again this year on our annual PTA Reflections Contest and Gallery on November 29th. This year’s theme was “Heroes Around Us” and we were all touched by the interpretation of this theme from many of our students in drawings, stories, painting, videos, photographs and dance.

Also, thank you all for donating over $4000 to victims of the Butte County Fires. We know that this will mean a lot to the families.
