Principal's Message
Hello Foster Park Families,

We have successfully completed Quarter 3 of the  2018-2019 academic year with one more to go! Our continued focus is on providing our students with every opportunity to receive their greatest education. We have committed to “Fostering Students’ Pathways, Potential, and Possibilities.” Therefore, we must take a holistic approach (academic, social and emotional) to provide our students with invaluable learning experiences both inside and outside of the classroom. Our overarching mission is to ensure that every Foster Park student masters the Common Core State Standards for their grade level as well as be prepared for their next level of education, leadership and civic responsibilities.

A partial list of focuses for the school community is as follows:
  • Improve student achievement in Reading, Math, Science, Social Studies and Writing using MOY data
  • Engage in independent reading daily
  • Improve teaching and learning
  • Increase student attendance
  • Develop student leaders
  • Increase student accountability
  • Increase student academic options
Every staff member at Foster Park believes and embodies the idea that our students can meet and exceed standards when placed in the proper, nurturing, learning environment. We accept the charge of “Fostering Excellence in Education” at Foster Park Elementary School. However, we know that this effort takes all members of the learning community working collaboratively, consistently performing at high levels and always in the best interest of the students. In an effort to better support our students, we have planned incentivized activities which rewards students for academic achievement, behaving appropriately, perfect attendance, and exhibiting leadership and/or increased civic engagement. We want to acknowledge and celebrate our students’ greatness in the classroom and beyond.

Kimberly Harper-Young, Ed. D.
