Mrs. Mandy Bowden
Welcome Back to a new school year! I am excited to be your computer lab teacher again this year.
My name is Mandy Bowden and this will be my 22nd year at McGee's Elementary. I am married and have 2 beautiful daughters and one awesome Granddaughter. I have been a Teacher Assistant (TA) in numerous grade levels but Kindergarten is by far my favorite. I have also been the Director of After School Care for the past 8 years. January 2020 I took over the Computer Lab and WebMaster responsibilities at McGee's. It has been a challenging journey especially with COVID-19 impacting the end of 2019-2020 school year. In 2020 I took on yet another challenge. I designed our school yearbook. I enjoyed this new task and l am looking forward to continueing to improve and make our school's yearbook one of the best. I LOVE anything Snowman and Weinie Dogs (Daschund). I love to read and play card games with my family. I have 2 dogs, a Daschund named Peanut and a Black Lab/Weimer Mix named Minnie.
On June 16th I had replacement surgery on my left knee. I am doing great and am back to walking without my cane. YEA!!! I am looking forward to a new school year and hopefully (keep your fingers crossed) things will be back to normal.
Stay safe and healthy.

Johnston County Public Schools is always striving to provide students and families with exemplary service. In most cases, school bus transportation is essential for many students to access a quality education. In order to meet our daily goal, it is necessary to implement change that enhances and improves our overall operation. As we prepare for the 2022-2023 school year, JCPS Transportation Services and School Nutrition will be hosting a Summer Information Fair at each high school.
Our district is launching a new portion of our website to further communicate bus delays and replacements with our families. We encourage those who have a student who utilizes our transportation to get to or from school to visit www.johnston.k12.nc.us/busdelays for updates on our school bus routes beginning Tuesday, January 18.
The Johnston County Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the 2022 Johnston County Public Schools salary schedule at their regularly scheduled Dec. 14 meeting.
