Gym Strip

Throughout the year, your child’s Physical Education class will be covering a variety of sporting activities. In order for students to do their best and be comfortable, they need to have the correct clothing. gym strip

Gym strip is mandatory for all students in grades 7 - 12. Students are expected to wear black shorts, black or maroon t-shirt and gym/training shoes with non-marking soles. If students have the old white gym strip t-shirts, they are still acceptable.

Students in grades 3 - 6 do not need to change for gym class but do require gym shoes.

Gym clothing can come from home. Or, Foothills Academy’s gym strip is available for purchase from the online store.

School Supplies

On the first day of school, the students receive their class schedule and all their school supplies from their homeroom teacher. We make every attempt to provide them with everything they will need during the year, including binders, paper, notebooks, textbooks, writing implements and an electronic device. Students are required to request additional supplies as needed through the year.


Each student receives his or her own locker and he or she is expected to keep it in reasonable order during the year and clean it out by the end of June. On the first day of school, the homeroom teachers distribute combination locks and locker numbers to the students.
