Stephen C. Foster Elemntary School was dedicated in 1953 and served as a neighborhood school. It was named for America's First Professional Composer, Stephen C. Foster, whose works include "Oh Susanna"' "Camptown Races"' "My Old Kentuky Home" and "Old Folks at Home (Way Down Upon the Swanee River)". His last song "Beautiful Dreamer" stiil inspires our students today to "Dream Big."
To alliviate overcrowding, Foster Elementary expanded in 2004. The new wing added 19 classrooms, a conference room, needed office space, new technology and our awesome Library!
More recently, our front entrance Mosaic, designed and constructed by Foster students, with the guidance of our Art Reach partners, was dedicated in the Spring of 2016.
In the Fall of 2016 Stephen C. Foster Elementery launched a Two-Way Dual Language Spanish Immersion Program. It will expand one grade level per year and today includes Pre-K, Kindergarten and First Grade. Also in the Fall of 2016 over 60 volunteers from Vizent Inc. and Real School Gardens along with selected Foster students participated in the "Big Dig" and installed our Real School Garden in the Foster front courtyard.
Our motto at Foster is "Work Hard, Get Smart and Graduate from College." Today, with the help of our many partners and community members, we continue to proudly serve and change the lives of our Love Field area students and their families.
