Hi! I am so excited to be a part of the River Dell Family. We have a fun year ahead full of lots of new adventures. This will mark my nineteenth year of teaching. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington with a degree in Elementary Education. I believe that every child learns in his/her own way and has the opportunity to experience all of life’s adventures. My goal is to help your child reach his/her full potential and help instill a love for learning.
Welcome to Kindergarten and have great summer!
Looking forward to a GREAT year 2021-2022 school year!

Our district is launching a new portion of our website to further communicate bus delays and replacements with our families. We encourage those who have a student who utilizes our transportation to get to or from school to visit www.johnston.k12.nc.us/busdelays for updates on our school bus routes beginning Tuesday, January 18.
The Johnston County Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the 2022 Johnston County Public Schools salary schedule at their regularly scheduled Dec. 14 meeting.
Carpool has been running so smoothly in the mornings. We want to remind parents that you should not drop off students at the top of the bus driveway to walk down to school. You can walk from your home or take them through carpool line. We appreciate your cooperation with this as we try to keep everyone safe. We want to thank everyone who attended Heritage Day on Saturday. We had an amazing turn out, and we can't wait to do it again next year.
We are really excited about our staff/parent basketball game for this Friday, March 11th. We will be playing against Thanksgiving Elementary at Archer Lodge Middle School. Our women's team of parents and teachers will be playing at 6pm. Our men's team will be playing at 7pm. Admission is one non-perishable food item for our Backpack Buddies program. This is such a great opportunity to help our families in need.
Report cards went home today. Please make sure to go over these with your children, then sign and return the envelopes. Tomorrow night is Spirit Night at Culver's on Hwy 70 in Clayton, near CVS and Bojangles. Come enjoy some delicious dinner at Culver's from 5:00-8:00, and a portion of the proceeds comes back to the students here at RDE.
Happy New Year Racers! We look forward to seeing all students back in the building tomorrow, Wednesday, January 5th, to begin our 3rd quarter. Please remember that masks are still required in all Johnston County Public Schools for all students, staff, and visitors.
We hope that everyone had a restful and enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday with their families. We only have 15 days of school until our break in December and we want to encourage everyone to make these days count. There is a PTA meeting on Tuesday evening at 6:00 in the River Dell media center. We would like to encourage everyone to come out and hear about all of the great things that our PTA has been up to. Alone we can do so little, but together we can do so much!
