Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Wendy Thomas
Welcome to Powhatan Elementary School. My name is Wendy Thomas. This is my 21st year teaching Kindergarten in Johnston County. I graduated from Meredith College in 2000 with a degree in Early Childhood Development. (Go Angels!!) I am happily married to my high school sweet heart Dustin and have three awesome kids. Lee is a sophmore in college, Will is a sophmore in High School, and Skylar is in the 6th grade. I love spending time with my family, taking care of my cows, and reading. I am looking forward to a moo-velous year helping your child grow and learn!
North Carolina schools are required to administer ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 to all students identified as English Learners (ELs) in the spring of each year to determine their progress in learning English. Each student is tested in four areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. This assessment helps us monitor their English language development.
The Johnston County Board of Education is now accepting applications for the Johnston County Community College Board of Trustee position. The deadline to apply for the vacancy is Friday, February 17, 2023.
We hope that you and your student have already noticed some of the exciting new food and meal opportunities we are offering in our cafeterias this school year. Our new options will include more fresh produce, vegetarian options, and opportunities for students to customize their meal choice. These new offerings will be available at both breakfast and lunch.
