Mrs. Pate

Mrs. Pate:  

I am a native of Wayne County.  In 2015, I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education.  I have been a Tar Heel all my life and love cheering for the Heels!  This is my sixth year teaching at GKE.  I taught kindergarten for four years, and this will be my second year in second grade!

I love watching baseball, and I especially enjoy watching the Tar Heels play!   I also love to spend time with family and friends, cook, and read.  In November 2016 I married my wonderful husband, Adam.  Together we have a daughter, Lainey.  Lainey and I love to the baseball games together!

  • 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.

    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.
