Mrs. Kathryn Hudson
Hi! My name is Kathryn Hudson and I am a kindergarten teacher at Meadow. I have been a teacher for 9 years. I have taught third grade for 3 years, fourth grade for 2 years, and kindergarten for 4 years. I graduated from Campbell University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, and I received my Master's Degree from Nova Southeastern University in Brain-Based Teaching and Learning with a concentration in reading and literacy. I am from Benson and have lived in the area my entire life. I am happily married to a Meadow alumni and we have 2 wonderful boys and 1 sweet girl! I love our special school, and I cherish the opportunity to teach kindergarteners in their first official year as a Meadow Indian! Kindergarten is a fun grade, and it is truly amazing to see how much students learn and grow from the beginning of school to the end of the year.

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. Packets will be labeled by grade-level and stored in a container. The packets will remain outside of the building by the cafeteria at all times. Packets can be picked up at anytime from the container after Friday at 11:30am. For those who have digital access at home, please visit our school website on Thursday and a link will be provided for you to access this information. The instructional packets and online resources provide optional supplemental learning for our students at this time. The instructional packet includes material that has been previously taught and serves as review. These materials are not intended to be core instruction.
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.
