Mrs. Heather Sutton
I have been an educator in the public school system since 1993, and have worked at Meadow Elementary for over 20 years. Most of my experience has been in grades 3 & 4 in the area of Language Arts. READING is my hobby and my passion! I enjoy coaching our Battle of the Books team and have been honored to work with teams that have placed third, second, first, and won regional competition. We made history in 2018 by scoring over 300 points in a double tie breaker round! My goal for any child is to make them a better reader, but also help them know that reading can be FUN! My favorite authors are Roald Dahl, Dr. Seuss, Judy Blume, and Margaret Peterson Haddix. Other things I enjoy are my family, my pets, visiting the mountains and Outer Banks of NC, collecting NC pottery, and eating CHOCOLATE. When I'm not at school I spend my time at home in Newton Grove with my husband, twin girls, two dogs, and a cat. The easiest way to contact me is through school email-I check it several times a day and once in the evening after school. firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
Attention parents of 4-year-olds: Are you interested in your child attending a free preschool program? The NC PreK program is designed to provide 4-year-old children with positive early learning experiences that support their development and prepare them for Kindergarten.
High school students and middle school students enrolled in high school courses will be given an option on how their grade appears on their transcript. Students should complete the form for their school to make their choice.
