Dear Foothill Families,


       I am honored to return as the principal at Foothill Elementary for the 2016-2017 school year.  I appreciate once again having the opportunity to lead our school towards academic excellence.

     Here at Foothill, we are passionate about working every day to improve the instruction your children receive and incorporating character education in our daily interaction with them.  Additionally, we will continue to work towards building a college-bound culture and creating an expectation in every one of our students that he or she will attend and graduate from an institution of higher learning.  I hope that these efforts are evident and come across in your daily interactions with your child and with our school staff. 

     Finally, please know that I truly value the thoughts and opinions of all of our stakeholders, especially parents.  If there is anything we can do to improve the services or safety we provide to you and your children, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at or call 951-358-1610.  I look forward to working collaboratively with you to address  your children’s needs and give them the best educational experience possible. 



Israel Avila
Foothill Elementary Principal
