Orienation & Newcomers Welcome

Freshmen, New Students & Parents Orientation
Get a warm welcome to the Foothill campus at orientation on Wednesday, August 19 from 10 a.m. to noon. in the large gym (students) and multipurpose room (parents). We are one big, happy family at Foothill, so all new students should show up at the same time.

Students will get a VIP tour of our beautiful campus. Be sure to bring your schedules so you can locate your classes.

Incoming freshmen will meet their Senior Buddies, a senior class student who has volunteered to mentor ninth-graders in their transition to high school.

A separate orientation session for parents of freshmen and new students will be held on the same day and at the same time in the multipurpose room.
Newcomers Welcome
Students and families new to Pleasanton are invited to a special newcomers welcome event Tuesday, August 18 at 10 a.m. in rooms C-6 (students) and A-5 (parents).

The event will start with a brief welcome presentation, followed by a campus tour for students led by peer advocates and a question-and-answer session for parents. Refreshments will be served.

Students new to Pleasanton are also invited to enjoy lunch the first day of school in room C-6. It will be a great opportunity for students new to town to have a welcoming environment for lunch and meet friends.

The event is hosted by the PTSA, peer advocates and Foothill administration. Please direct any questions to PTSA new family support coordinator Mona Sethi at monasethi1@gmail.com.

We welcome anyone who has moved to town in recent years or anyone who would like to be part of the new family support team.
