This is my thirteenth year teaching at River Dell Elementary. I have taught fifth grade for all of those years. I currently teach science and math for fifth grade. Before moving to North Carolina, I attended Union University in Jackson, Tennessee. I was born in Nashville, TN and lived there until moving to teach here! My goal as a teacher is to instill a love of learning in students and engage their curiosity to learn more when outside the classroom setting.
In order for our teachers and staff to see as many of our students as possible, we are inviting all RDE students and families to come to RDE for a "Drive Thru Parade." This replaces the previously planned neighborhood parade. Our parade will take place Friday, March 27th from 4:00pm to 5:30pm. Please enter the carpool line and wave to your teachers and staff as you drive through. They will be positioned all along the carpool line with signs waiting to wave and shout, "Hello!"
Mr. Jewett will begin to record morning announcements on our Twitter page. He will do the pledge, call out birthdays, and share any other information each morning. If this is a way you would like your child to start their day, please visit our River Dell Elementary Twitter page to view that video.
There are resources for students at the following website- bit.ly/jcpshome. You can also access that page via a link on the Johnston County Schools website. Starting on Monday, March 30th, through that website you can select our school, River Dell Elementary, and access learning activities by grade level. Our county has planned the first 10 days of activities, and our teachers are planning activities starting with day 11 and going through May 15th. Our teachers are also reaching out to you and your students about office hours for your questions time to have virtual contact and help our students.
