Activities and Enrichment Programs

    ​​​Extracurricular activities and enrichment programs are generally offered by Foothill staff or parent volunteers. Programs that require a fee are noted. The following are examples of activities that are typically offered; availability in a given year often depends upon the enthusiasm of parent volunteers.​

    Garde​n ​t​o Table Prog​ram

    This program is managed in partnership with the Growe Foundation which is a local non-profit organization that educates children about healthy eating and environmental sustainability through school and community programs. The Growe Foundation organizes Garden to Table programs in the Boulder Valley School District. Our Foothill Garden to Table program is in it's second full season and we are excited about our newly built outdoor classroom. Visit the Growe Foundation website to learn more.
