Mrs. Melissa Jacobson

Welcome to Ms. Jacobson's 7th Grade Social Studies class.

 

A little bit about me

I grew up in the Garner area and graduated from Garner High (GMHS, at the time). I went to UNC for undergrad and earned by Bachelor of Arts in Geography, with minors in History and Sustainability Studies. After undergrad, I attended NCSU and earned my Master of Arts in Teaching. I am certified to teach Middle Grades and High School Social Studies. I have a passion for history, world cultures, and the impacts humans have on their environment. I also have a passion for travel. So far, I have had the privilege of traveling abroad to New Zealand, France, and (most recently) Italy and Greece.

  • Updated COVID-19 Quarantine Guidance

    There have been significant changes to the Strong Schools NC toolkit that affects the quarantine procedures our staff and students must follow if they are exposed to a positive case of COVID-19. Any student or staff member who is currently quarantined due to an exposure of a positive COVID-19 case may return to school or work tomorrow, unless the close contact is a housemate. We are able to make this adjustment because our district requires masks for all students, staff, and guests.

  • JCPS to Utilize New Website for Bus Updates

    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.

  • ACCESS testing for English Language Learners

    North Carolina schools are required to administer ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 to all students identified as English Learners (ELs) in the spring of each year to determine their progress in learning English. Each student is tested in four areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. This assessment helps us monitor their English language development.

  • Updated COVID-19 Quarantine Guidance

    Our district is continuing to follow the guidance and recommendations from the Johnston County Public Health Department, the CDC, and the Strong Schools NC Toolkit, and we will now adhere to a 5 day quarantine period for students or staff members who tests positive for COVID-19. This is a change from the previous 10 day quarantine time.
