Mrs. Joy Beaston
Hello! Welcome to my English class! My name is Joy Beaston and I teach English classes ranging from English I to English IV and also Creative Writing. I am a proud graduate of NCSU. This is my ninth year at Cleveland High School. Go Rams!
I am married to my wonderful husband, Cliff. I have three children--all married--and two precious grandbabies: Nolan and Presley. You'll probably hear me talk about them from time to time!
I love traveling, reading, gardening, and spending time with family and friends. I also REALLY love all things English! Yes, even grammar.
I look forward to working with you this semester! I have very high expectations, but we also manage to have a lot of fun.
My assignments and announcements will not be on this site but will instead be on Google Classroom. You will receive a code to join on the first day of class. Parents may also join.

The Johnston County Board of Education approved a calendar change for the JCPS school calendar at their March 9 meeting. The change moves the Wednesday, March 24, remote learning day to Friday, March 26 for all schools except for North Johnston High School, which will have remote learning days on March 24 and March 26.
At their August meeting, the Johnston County Board of Education voted 4-3 to make face coverings required indoors in all Johnston County Public Schools campuses and on all buses for students, staff, and guests. This updated mask requirement is effective immediately.
The online application for the Johnston County Public Schools Preschool Program is now available. Parents who are interested in the JCPS Preschool Program are encouraged to apply early, as availability is on a first come, first served basis. The application window closes on June 30th.
