Principal's Message

A Message from our Principal

Welcome to Carlisle-Foster’s Grove Elementary School, where students grow to their fullest potential academically, socially, and emotionally.
Carlisle-Foster's Grove Elementary School Principal Cathy Garner and her family
At our school, we pride ourselves in maintaining high expectations while focusing on the individual needs of each student. We serve 440 students from Kindergarten through fourth grade. We have dedicated teachers who ensure our students benefit from engaging lessons that encourage our students to think critically and solve real-world problems. We are intentional and purposeful in inspiring life-long learners. We believe it is important to model respect, build relationships and foster a school culture where our students feel valued, loved and appreciated.

On a personal level, I have been married to David for over 30 years. We are getting ready to experience our first grandchild. My daughter, her husband and grandson live in Hendersonville, NC. I received my undergrad from Winthrop University and graduate degree from Converse College. When I am not at school, you will find me relaxing at our lake home and spending time with family and friends.

It is my priority to help provide students with the BEST education in an effective learning environment that enables ALL students to become successful members of our community. Be sure to read the Paw Print, the parent newsletter that goes home each Sunday night for updated information and events.

Yours in partnership,
Cathy Garner
