Ms. Foundation President and CEO Teresa Younger spent the day at Foote on January 24. She led a girls leadership lunch, talked with faculty members about teaching toward equity, and spoke about her life as an activist with the 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students, faculty, and parents. She gave us all a lot to think about!
Last week the ninth grade spent a day touring the UN Headquarters and MOMA. This is school!
The last week of September, twenty-six students from Yali High School spent five days exploring Foote and Greater New Haven with our twenty-six ninth graders. We will see our Yali friends in March when we visit Changsha.
