Hello! I am so excited to be a Cardinal this year! I am a Johnston County native who has returned after a ten year detour through Maryland and Japan! I have served in many capacities in the past teaching PreK, Fourth, Kindergarten, and Third grade! I look forward to all of the things I will learn during my time in second grade. I am a UNCW graduate times two, once for my undergraduate studies and then again for my graduate degree! I am passionate about serving my students and their families. I believe in constant and clear communication. We WILL make it a great year together! Here's to an awesome school year! 

  • To begin the school year, August 17-September 4, a students schedule will be posted in our Google Classroom. Please have your student log in to their Google classroom account and find the Schedule tab for expected virtual classtimes.

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.

  • Updated Social Distancing Procedures

    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.
