Ms. Karen Kenney
Hello! Welcome to First Grade! My name is Karen Kenney-Lassiter (aka Ms. Kenney). This is my 5th year in First Grade after many years teaching Kindergarten. How exciting it was to see the progression as students move from Kdg. to First grade! When not at school, I enjoy reading, hanging out with my family, and fostering dogs with a local rescue. I am looking forward to another great year and will do my best to make sure your child has a great year in first grade!
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.
The Johnston County Board of Education is now accepting applications for the Johnston County Community College Board of Trustee position. The deadline to apply for the vacancy is Friday, February 17, 2023.
We hope that you and your student have already noticed some of the exciting new food and meal opportunities we are offering in our cafeterias this school year. Our new options will include more fresh produce, vegetarian options, and opportunities for students to customize their meal choice. These new offerings will be available at both breakfast and lunch.
