Hi to all of our Parents, Students, Staff and Stakeholders,
I hope that you are all braving this seemingly endless winter and looking forward to some reprieve from the weather during Spring Break. As I look to the arrival of Spring (which admittedly we will not see for another few months (but which my English DNA fools me into believing is just around the corner), I realize how quickly time is flying.
It may not be on your radar yet, but September 2018 will be a significant landmark for Foothills Academy as we proudly enter our 40th year of operation. Our founders - Gordon Bullivant, Tom Aylesworth and the Mackasey family - have left us with an incredible legacy and we intend to mark this milestone anniversary by celebrating our growth and direction. Just as we did 40 years ago, we continue to strive to meet the needs of children, youth, and young adults, as well as their families, living with Learning Disabilities whether it is through the school program or through Community Services.
With our upcoming anniversary in mind, we have embarked on a project to revamp our website thanks to the generosity of an Anonymous Donor who believes in the work we are doing. Through this revamped website, we will continue to share what we do at Foothills with the world while we ensure that we provide a functional website that serves the needs of current students, parents and staff, prospective members of Foothills Academy, as well as other stakeholders.
As a vital stakeholder in our community, we would like to ask for your feedback on what you would like to see in this revamped website. To do this, we have created a form that you can submit with your ideas. Let us know if you feel that there is something on the website that you would like to see or something that you would like to see changed or removed. We encourage you to think back to before you came to Foothills. Were there things that were not easy to find? Or, do you know about something that would be a great asset to the LD population if it was readily available on the website? Please know that any feedback you provide about the website will be very much appreciated and thoughtfully considered. Our feedback form will be open for responses until noon on March 23rd (start of Spring Break).
I hope that all is well with every one of you and remember that Spring is coming (somewhere).
Warmest (quite literally) Regards,
