Parents! This year’s main fundraiser is Boosterthon! It’ll be a 9-day program where we kick off with a Pep Rally on August 25th, families will have time to get pledges for every lap your student runs, and then we’ll celebrate at the Fun Run on

Students will also experience an amazing character theme, Big World Recess! It’s a global fitness theme all about playing with character.  So please help our school by reaching out to sponsors.

Teacher of the Year- Kate Fogleman

Kate Fogleman is excited to serve as Lake Forest Teacher of the Year for the 2015-16 school year! She is beginning her fifth year of teaching the Developmental class and continues to enjoy working as a team with her wonderful assistants, Mrs. Alexander and Ms. Reid. She has a bachelor’s degree in special education and a master’s degree in early childhood special education, both from Clemson University, and she just completed her early childhood add-on certification. Mrs. Fogleman loves teaching, and her favorite part is watching students grow, mature, and gain independence and confidence in themselves and their ability to learn. She grew up in Greenville and still lives here with her husband Scott and their cat Georgie. In her free time, Mrs. Fogleman enjoys horseback riding, hiking, and relaxing with family.
