Hi! :) My name is Laura Beth Skoczylas. I have been teaching for 9 years and this is my 4th year teaching at MES. Although I have only been teaching at Meadow for 4 years, I am acutally a Meadow Alumni. GO INDIANS! I graduated from East Carolina University with a degree in Elementary Education with a certification in K-12 Reading.
I was born and raised in the Meadow community and I currently reside in Meadow with my husband, Jake, and my 2 boys, Finley & Grainger. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, fishing with my husband and enjoying my 2 boys.
I look forward to meeting each and everyone of my students at Meadow School. Meadow is such a wonderful place to be and a wonderful place to grow and learn.

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.
