Coach Thorpe

         My name is Anthony Thorpe and I have been teaching in Johnston County for the last 11 years.  I spent 6 years at Polenta Elementary and transferred to Benson Elementary in January 2015.  I've lived in several different places growing up including Indianapolis IN, Savannah GA, Morehead KY, Smyrna DE, and most recently Garner NC. 

 

         I graduated from Morehead State University with my Bachelors in Health and Physical Education.  I am certified to teach grades K-12 and am also certified in CPR.

  • Complete the Second Semester Choice Form

    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.

  • 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.
