Foote Centennial Book

To commemorate our centennial in 2016, the school published a history book exploring The Foote School's first century—from its origins in a New Haven living room and converted stable, to the far-reaching community Foote is today. This beautifully designed and insightful hardcover book weaves together first-hand accounts, archival photographs, student artwork and writing, and other ephemera to tell the story of a school that re-imagined primary education as a child-centered experience that fosters a lifelong love of learning. The Foote School: Celebrating 100 Years makes a great gift and memonto to the Footie in your life!
