Mrs. Bridget Brown
Welcome to Mrs. (Barnes) Brown's Agriculture Class
I am Mrs. (Barnes) Brown and welcome to my class. Many of my former stuents and their older siblings know me as Miss Barnes, so I tell my students they can call me Mrs. Barnes or Mrs. Brown (whichever they are most comfortable with). I am a graduate from the University of Mount Olive and have a bachelors degree in Agriculture Education. I am originally from a small town in Wayne County and have been actively involved in agriculture for a long time. Agriculture and teaching are two of my biggest passions along with helping others. During high school I was a member and officer for the chapter FFA and in college I was a member of our collegiate FFA and was president of our collegiate Young Farmers and Ranchers through Farm Bureau. I will be out for maternity leave at the beginning of the school year, but no worries; I am leaving my students in the hands of our awesome support staff. We are excited to say that BMS now has an active FFA chapter. I will be posting upcoming dates and events on my FFA Google Classroom and on my class website. This is my fifth year teaching at BMS and as always I am super excited for the new year and my next set of students. Though we can't be in the building together, it's still going to be a GREAT year!
During the duration of at home learning, I will be offering office hours. During these hours I will be reaching out to students and parents to make sure students have what they need to complete activities and to assist in any way that I can. Also, during this time students and parents may reach out to me for assistance. Office hours are Monday-Tuesday and Thursday-Friday from 12:10-1:10. I also have my email linked to my phone so I will be checking it regularly and will reply back as soon as possible.
Starting Monday, August 17th, we will begin the school year virtually. During this time I will have daily live times I will be video chatting with my classes to go over new content I have posted on Google Classroom, new instruction, and/or answer questions. Below are the times I will be live. Please notice that A DAY students will have live time on Mondays and Tuesdays only and B DAY students will have live times on Thursdays and Fridays.

We are offering a new opportunity for our families this winter break. Parents are invited to sign up to receive holiday meal kits that will be distributed from all of our high school sites. Each meal kit will include seven days of packaged breakfast and lunch meals per child.
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.
