Ms. Amy Oppenheim
Hello my name is Amy Oppenheim, and this is my fifth year teaching Preschool at Powhatan Elementary. Over the years I have been in many different grade levels and have found my calling in preschool. For the last 14 years I have been working with children ages 3-5 that have amazing talents and gifts. Originally, I am from Michigan and went to Eastern Michigan University. Later I got my masters from Marygrove College in Detroit. I have lived in North Carolina for the last 16 years and have a very inventive, creative, and outgoing son named Cameron.
As we anticipate a return to a normal school year in 2021-2022, with our students participating in face-to-face instruction five days a week, we are offering an exciting new opportunity for families. In the fall of 2021 we will open a new school, the JCPS Virtual Academy, for any student interested in grades K-12.
While face masks are still required in all of our indoor facilities, students, staff, and guests of our campuses are no longer required to wear a face covering when outdoors. Students and staff may continue to wear masks when participating in recess or outdoor activities if they choose to do so.
The online application for the Johnston County Public Schools Preschool Program is now available. Parents who are interested in the JCPS Preschool Program are encouraged to apply early, as availability is on a first come, first served basis. The application window closes on June 30th.
Johnston County Public Schools has updated its plan to mark senior milestones, including prom and graduation while adhering to guidance from the Johnston County Public Health Department and the CDC in regards to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
