About Foster Heights Elementary School


Located in the heart of Bardstown, Foster Heights Elementary is a newly renovated school serving students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Seventy-nine staff members provide instruction and support to students in 29 regular classroom settings and a variety of resource and intervention settings. Students receive related arts instruction in art, music, physical education, health, technology, library and social skills. Our staff strives to fulfill the mission and vision of providing a strong academic program within a positive learning environment, in partnership with our families and community. Responsible decision-making skills are taught to assist students in becoming productive citizens. We employ regular evaluation and support to help ensure student success. Instruction is provided to meet the needs of all learners in order to prepare “Honorable, Understanding, Successful, Knowledgeable, Independent, Empowered Students” to become life­long learners and contributing citizens in a changing society.

Foster Heights provides instruction in the Common Core Standards for English, Language Arts and Math and Core Content 4.1 in Science and Social Studies. Our school improvement plan contains goals that address reduction of barriers and closing achievement gaps among student groups. All students are taught a core curriculum of reading, math, science, social studies, arts/humanities and practical living/vocational studies. The core curriculum is supported by music, drama, physical and character education, technology and library skills. Assessment tools are used to identify student needs and strengths. Additional programs including differentiated instruction, intervention, ESS services, specially designed instruction, speech therapy and gifted/talented instruction are provided to ensure academic success for all students. A wide variety of extracurricular activities are also offered to students.



For any girl interested in playing basketball this year at Foster Heights, there will be a parent meeting on Tuesday, Sept 9.  Please use the gym lobby doors when entering and leaving.  The meeting for 4th grade girls is at 6:00pm.  The 5th grade meeting will be at 6:45

WE WILL ALSO BE SEARCHING FOR COACHES THIS NIGHT. If we don’t have enough parents to volunteer as coaches, we may not be able to form teams.

If your daughter is interested in playing basketball, please make sure to attend this meeting.  

Please note: Insurance is a MUST for a player to participate! 

FYI: As soon as coaches and teams are formed, practice schedules will be given out.
