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.

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.
