Decidedly Academic. Distinctively Christian.

NEW Gym Floor!

Aiming High At Ground Level

Written by Bo Gutzwiller, Superintendent

At Foothill we are always looking for ways to advance our programs and improve our facilities. Everywhere you look on campus there is evidence of our commitment to God-honoring excellence! The beautiful and spacious library, our stunning computer lab and attractive lunch patio all signal…quality. But our gym floor lacked luster!

The existing floor was installed over 15 years ago and was showing signs of the use (and abuse) it received daily from athletics and school child care programs. The blue and burgundy colors did not match our athletic brand and the epoxy style paint was sub-standard as it related to injury prevention.

Prior to installing the Eagle mascot logo
in center court, students and faculty—including
Coach Laurie Harrington and Superintendent Bo
Gutzwiller—memorialized the site with personal
signatures and scriptures.

Thanks to your 2016-17 fundraising support, we were able to install a new wood-grain floor with several layers of shock-absorption rubber that provides immediate protection when athletes fall, slide, or dive on the floor. This flooring has been installed in over 70,000 gymnasiums, including top-ranked universities and the Olympic volleyball venues since 1976! The new look also features the school colors in vibrant design. The especially attractive mid-court Eagle mascot logo is a two-toned, wood inlay that rivals the most innovative sports courts in America!

Our gymnasium is a prominent aspect of student life and school spirit here at FCS. Having a multi-purpose facility that accommodates sporting events, showcases our fine arts productions and supports our chapel programs is a huge blessing! Having a state-of-the-art floor brings it in line with the high standards for which Foothill is known.

The Foothill Christian Legacy Youth Orchestra was chosen to perform at Carnegie Hall next year, and we could tell why based on their fantastic performance this afternoon! Today while students around the country joined the “Never Again” movement our 8th graders gathered together in small groups and prayed for the victims’ families and friends of the Parkland High School shooting. They also prayed for school leaders across the country, government officials and legislators in their efforts to find solutions. Before they prayed, they rang a bell…17 for each of the victims. The small ring of the bell felt much weightier than its tone. It added a poignant emphasis to their reflections and prayers. To read more about this visit: #neveragain Our second annual glow, Fun Run took place today in the gym for our TK-8th graders. Thanks to everyone who supported one of our students as they raised funds for school projects! The Fun Run kicked off today for some of our preschoolers! Tomorrow the remaining students (preschool - 8th grade) will join in on the fun! That means there is ONE more day to get your pledges in!
