KHSD Video Introduction to Principal Geivet (August 2021)
Dear Trojan Parents/Guardians and Students,
I welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year. This is an exciting year at Foothill High School as we celebrate our 60th anniversary. With 60 years of history comes a great deal of tradition and pride in our school community. We have endured and persevered through one of the most unprecedented times in education. Our staff and students worked diligently last year as we returned to in-person learning and we look forward to building upon our progress as we focus on providing our students the best educational experience possible.
Our projected enrollment for this year is 2,047 students and we welcome 526 incoming freshmen to the Foothill family. At Foothill High School, we maintain our commitment to the three core values that define what it means to be a Trojan: Focus, Honor, and Success (FHS). We work with our students to focus on their education by taking advantage of the many opportunities and supports provided during their four years. Help us encourage them to connect with our culture and experience all that Foothill has to offer by getting involved with activities, athletics, and clubs. By focusing outside as well as inside the classroom, they are sure to find success.
Additionally, we will continue to teach students to honor our Trojan history and traditions. As a member of the Foothill family, we expect our students to honor our campus, their peers, and themselves. Respect is a fundamental ingredient that will lead to the success of each student and our school. As Trojans, we take care of and support each other. We celebrate our differences and focus on the things we have in common, allowing our students to understand the meaning of #WeAreTrojans. We proudly represent our time as Trojans and continue to pass down a legacy of success.
Parents, guardians, and family members of a Trojan, we recognize the important role you all play in the success of our students. Please consider getting involved in our parent booster group, Trojan Link. We value your input and need your support and partnership to provide the best experience possible. You can also connect with Foothill by attending one of our many parent meetings, Coffee with the Principal, athletic events, or visual and performing arts shows. The more you are on campus making the connection, the more likely your student will find success.
The Foothill seal above includes the following Latin phrase Gaudium Eruditionis which means the joy of learning. Foothill High School is a special place where we find joy in the educational journey of our students. Our staff loves working with our students and we value each Trojan and their unique path. Please join us in celebrating the joy of learning over the course of this coming year.
