What is FTO?

Family Teacher Organization Family support is a vital part of our educational efforts here at Foothills. The Family Teacher Organization was formed to serve as a link between students, teachers, administrators, and families. The FTO provides valuable support and funding for numerous projects on our campus. Funds are obtained through membership dues ($5.00 per family), Raccoon Romp, and the school bookstore. The By-Laws of the FTO are available in the Foothills Elementary School Library. Officers are elected in May for the following school year.


The FTO (Family Teacher Organization) at Foothills was formed to serve as a link between students, teachers, administrators and families.  The FTO provides support and funding for many projects on our campus.  In recent years, FTO fundraising efforts have provided Promethean boards for Foothills classrooms, a covered awning for the Kindergarten pickup area, a covered awning for the outdoor cafeteria tables, landscaping, playground equipment maintenance, various educational tools, as well as money for teachers to purchase items for their individual classrooms.  FTO has also funded author visits, the Winter Carnival, and Field Days.  

FTO's major fundraising event is the Raccoon Romp, and additional revenue is generated from FTO membership dues ($5 per family).  The FTO meets once per month during the school year, and all members are invited to attend.  Meeting are posted on the school calendar.
