Mrs. Christie Thompson
I consider it a privilege to be your child's teacher this year. I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. My husband and I are originally from WV. We moved to the Clayton area in 2000 right after getting married. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Fairmont State University located in WV. I have been teaching for over 20 years. Young children are like little sponges when it comes to learning and I love being a part of that learning process for them. I believe in making learning fun and relevant to the lives of the children.
I have two wonderful children of my own. My daughter, Kelcey, is in tenth grade this year at Clayton High. My son, Cameron, is in sixth grade at Riverwood Middle.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and helping make wonderful memories for my children. I like to read, walk, and watch movies! I am a Christian and trust and believe in God's leading and guiding in my life. I am blessed to have this opportunity to care for, teach, and love your child for 180 days of the year!
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.
