Mrs. Christine Avery
Hello, My name is Christine Avery. A little about me: I am in my 20th year of teaching music in public school, and beginning my 12th year at Dixon Road Elem. I received my B.A. in Music Education from Campbell University and my Masters in Music Education from ECU. (Go Camels and Pirates!!) I am married to my wonderful husband, (retired)Principal Michael Scott Avery. We have two daughters; Bethany a recent graduate of ECU in Graphic Design and Selah is a ninth grader at SSS in the IB program. Our pets are: Tigger and Luna our cats, and Platinum the albino gecko.
I love teaching music and watching the kids enjoy making music and exploring the world of music.
Welcome back to School!!! We miss you all!!
Every JCPS parent must fill out the Second Semester Choice form to choose either the Virtual Program OR face-to-face instruction for each of their students. The Second Semester Choice form is to be filled out for ALL students in grades PreK-12. If a child is going to participate in face-to-face instruction for the second semester, the parent will be asked to fill out transportation information for the student in the form. A form for each student should be completed by Nov. 30.
Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
