Mrs. Alexa Knight
Hi! My name is Alexa Knight, and I am currently teaching 8th grade math and Math One. This is my second year at Meadow, and I am so excited to be a part of the Indian Family! :) This is my ninth year teaching and my seventh year in 8th grade. I also have my Middle School Science license, and I am AIG certified. I was born and raised in Benson, NC and I could not imagine myself living anywhere else. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from North Carolina State University in 2010. I am a true wolfpack fan who thoroughly enjoys attending games. You can also find me cheering on the Bears during football season and the Braves during baseball season!
I was married on April 6th, 2013 to my best friend & also NCSU alumni, Justin Knight who works in engineering. We have two amazing daughters, Annie and Claire. In my spare time, I enjoy going to the beach, fishing, hanging out with friends and family, and playing volleyball. Through all my life experiences, I realize more and more each day that I am precisely where I belong. I consider myself a math minded person because I spend nearly every waking moment thinking about math and relating it to real world. Most importantly, however, I love to share my passion about math and learning with my students. My students mean the world to me, and they are the true reason that I am who I am today!
Parents and Guardians As a means of supporting our families with using Lexia Reading at Home, an important tool our students use to help increase their reading capacity, the company is offering “FREE” webinars just for parents and guardians who are at home helping to fill in the gaps during times. In these webinars, Professional Learning Facilitators will instruct families of K-8 learners on how to: Get set up and started (your student should already have an account). Support children's learning at home. Track progress and extend learning.
We realize that some of you may not have internet and/or devices or may prefer paper copies, so we will be preparing instructional packets for our students. Families can pick up the packets on Friday, March 27th at 11:30am by the back of the cafeteria.
The stops listed below will help us serve families across Johnston County who need meals for their children. Like the school meal service sites, these delivery locations will offer a lunch and shelf-stable breakfast to children ages 18 and younger at no cost. These delivery locations will be available from 12:00 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. beginning March 20 until further notice.
Meadow School will be offering curbside grab and go pick up lunch service beginning on Wednesday, March 18 from 11:30 a.m to 1:30 p.m. Meals will be offered on weekdays until further notice at no cost. Any students under the age of 18 can receive a meal at any meal service location regardless of whether they attend Johnston County Public Schools. A parent or household member can come from the household to pick up the student meals.
At this time, all traditional high school graduations are still planned for May 29. Graduation ceremonies for Johnston County Early College Academy and Johnston County Career and Technical Leadership Academy will now take place on May 16th, rather than the original date of May 15th.
The Johnston County Board of Education will hold a budget work session on Tuesday, April 27. The meeting will begin at 5:00 p.m. and be held in the Evander Simpson Building in Smithfield.
