I am filled with “bolting” energy and excitement to be part of the Stephen Foster School Community! My name is Claudia Castillo and I have the honor of being your principal. We are happy that you have chosen Bellflower Unified School District to educate your child or children. Our school has been a pillar of the community since 1962 located at 5223 E. Bigelow Street. We are proud to be a recipient of the 2020 California Distinguished School Award. Stephen Foster Elementary has and will continue to be a school that services children to meet both academic and social emotional needs. As principal of the school, it is important for me to connect with families and provide a welcoming environment for children to flourish. I am happy to serve in that capacity and will continue to make the necessary paradigm shifts to accomplish this task. I welcome you to the BOLTS family and look forward to seeing you on campus and building caring relation-ships with the children here at Stephen Foster. “Building Futures” will be our overarching goal and motivation at Stephen Foster Elementary School.
