Mrs. Amy Kontir
After five years as an English Language Arts teacher at Archer Lodge Middle School, I am excited to be the Teaching and Learning Coach at Corinth Holders Elementary School starting August 2017.
Originally from New Jersey, my family moved to Clayton in 2012 after living in Philadelphia and Dallas. My husband and I have three children, twin boys who will be juniors at Corinth Holders High School and a daughter who will begin college in the fall at the University of South Carolina. We love to travel and I'm working on stepping foot in each of the 50 states (12 to go!) and on each continent (3 left!).
Teaching is one of my many passions. I'm also an avid reader and language lover as well as yoga enthusiast.
A special called session of Johnston County Board of Education has been called for Thursday, July 29 at 5:00 p.m. in the Evander Simpson Building in Smithfield. The open session portions of the meeting and all announcements will be accessible to the public via the livestream available online.
The deadline is quickly approaching for Johnston County Public Schools families who need transportation for their students during the 2021-2022 school year.

Students who will begin school on August 23rd have until August 2nd to request transportation. This date is for all other JCPS Schools on the traditional school calendar.
While face masks are still required in all of our indoor facilities, students, staff, and guests of our campuses are no longer required to wear a face covering when outdoors. Students and staff may continue to wear masks when participating in recess or outdoor activities if they choose to do so.
The online application for the Johnston County Public Schools Preschool Program is now available. Parents who are interested in the JCPS Preschool Program are encouraged to apply early, as availability is on a first come, first served basis. The application window closes on June 30th.
