Faculty Friday feat. Mrs. Fogarty
This week’s Faculty Friday features our veteran Kindergarten teacher Mrs. Chuck Fogarty. For over two decades, Mrs. Fogarty’s impact has extended far beyond the Kindergarten classroom. She keeps the Salesian spirit of CKS alive with her inexhaustible joy as she teaches not only academic lessons, but faith-filled life lessons. Find out what being the Queen Bee means to her, why she leads the most popular Easter Bonnet parade in town, and why she loves CKS!
