Mrs. Cristy Adams
Welcome to 4th Grade!
I am the 4th grade Social Studies/Science teacher at Meadow School. I grew up in Benson, North Carolina and went to school at Benson Elementary, Benson Middle, and South Johnston High School. Upon graduation, I attended North Carolina State University and obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Human Resources. To obtain my teaching certification, I attended Campbell University. I have been teaching 4th grade for 17 years. The first five years were at Hobbton Elementary, then I went to Benson Elementary for 5 years. Before coming to Meadow School, I taught at Neuse Charter School for two years. I am married to Dell Adams and we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in October. We have one son, Rett, who is an upcoming 9th grader at South Johnston High School.
I love ladybugs and my favorite colors are red and black. I enjoy spending time with my family, volunteering my time in my community, and I love to read. I have longhorn cows and miniature donkeys at our farm, Rett's Creek. My classroom motto is "Be the light" because it is important for our lights to shine everyday.

Recently, the Johnston County Board of Elections notified our school system that our school will be used as a voting site for the upcoming primary on March 3, 2020. Therefore, our school will be closed on this day for students and will become an optional workday for staff. The district considered the option of making up this day, but determined this would present scheduling challenges for students, staff and parents. Additionally, the yearly instructional schedule has been calculated and our school will have more than the required 1025 instructional hours for the academic year. We apologize for any inconvenience this schedule change may cause and thank you for your understanding as this adjustment is made to our calendar.
Due to the increasing severity expected for this afternoon's weather, all Johnston County Public Schools will now dismiss one hour early. *Meadow will dismiss at 2:20! Students will receive their lunches prior to departure from school. Please make arrangements to pick up all after school care students by 2:50pm. Also, during carpool, we may be releasing fewer students at the time, depending on the severity of the weather, as safety is our top priority. Thank you and have a great day.
