Mrs. Caren Thomas
Welcome to the WONDERFUL world of 3rd Grade!!!
The first day of school is August 29, 2022. We will have a chance to meet prior to the first day on August 23 from 5-7pm in Room 206. In the meantime, here is a little bit about me...
My name is Caren Thomas and I am so happy to be your child's teacher! This is my tenth year at MCES, but my second year as a Third Grade teacher. I am so excited to be team teaching with Ms. LaMunyon and Mrs. McClean. I will be your child's English Language Arts, whereas Ms. LaMunyon will teach your child Math, and Mrs. McClean will teach Science, Social Studies, and Writing. I am thrilled to begin this exciting adventure with all of my students.
I graduated from College of St. Elizabeth with a B.S. in Business Management and later pursued alternative licensure in Elementary Education at East Carolina University. I consider myself a lifelong learner because there is always new information or skills to discover!
My husband and I are originally from New Jersey, but moved to North Carolina in 2005. We live in Archer Lodge with our boys. Our oldest son, Jacob, who is 25, is a UNCW graduate. He now has a successful career in computer science and is living in Charlotte. We are so proud of him! We also have 13 year old identical twin boys, Justin and Breyden, that are heading into eight grade this year. They are our energetic, funny, smart, Mario and Luigi-loving boys!
I look forward to partnering with you to make this a successful year for your child. Together, we can make this an incredible learning experience.
A few of my favorite things:
Things to do: Beach, Reading, Movies, Making Family Memories
Color: Teal, Pink
Treats: Chocolate, Diet Coke
Restaurants: Carraba's, Fiesta Mexicana
Books: Love You Forever, Charlotte's Web
If at any time you need to contact me, my email is email@example.com.
My contact number is (919) 894-7161.
The best time to reach me is during my planning (9:10-9:55am)
At the November Regular Session Board of Education meeting, the Board voted unanimously to improve safety and security in Johnston County Public Schools by implementing state-of-the-art security systems in each of the district’s schools.
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.
