Imagine a whole week of your student having NO HOMEWORK, let's make this magic happen :) 


If families that have Not donated yet gave $15 we would surpass our goal! While the PTA suggests a $75 donation, please know that a donation of any amount helps and is very much appreciated - and gets your child a coveted charm for their mileage necklace! 


While you can no longer buy All Goblins tickets online, a $75 donation to the Fox Fund still gets you a free ticket to the All Goblins event!


Please note: If you have donated through an employer matching site (i.e. Benevity for intel) Please submit the receipt with your child's name and teacher through the Wed Folder or email directly to


And a much anticipated update on the very tight race for the class popsicle party. Who is going to be on top come Friday?

74.0% HARDY

70.0% WAGNER

65.0% CANN

Folsom Police Department Red Ribbon Poster Contest.

We can’t believe it is almost here! Red Ribbon Week is just around the corner and entries for our 2019 Red Ribbon Week Poster Contest are due on October 17, 2019. 

Remember! One student at each FCUSD elementary school will win a bike!


Steps to Volunteering at Folsom Hills.

  1. Obtain a Folsom Hills volunteer application. At Empire Oaks and Gallardo, make sure you pick up the orange Folsom Hills application. Fill out the front and back. You may turn in at all locations, but there maybe a delay in process. For fastest turn around, turn into the Folsom Hills office.
  2. Principal Lundberg will review and clear you to volunteer.
  3. Obtain a current TB test. If you have had a test within the past 4 years, it is still valid.
  4. Make an appointment at the district office to have your fingerprints done (see green bar below). Be sure to follow directions for what to bring to your appointment.
