Ms. Jessica Merrall

Hi! My name is Jessica Merrall and I am your child's second grade teacher! I graduated from the University of Cincinnati in Ohio. I began my teaching career in Houston, Texas in 1998. I moved to North Carolina in 2002. I have taught at Micro Pine Level, River Dell, and now Thanksgiving Elementary. I have taught 1st-4th grades. I am so excited to teach second grade again. I love teaching second grade because students are eager to learn something new every day!! I have a passion for learning something new everyday as well!!

I look forward to working with you and your student this year!!!!

    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.
