Mrs. Kerri Palmer
Hello! I'm Mrs. Palmer and I am passionate about teaching and learning! I'm a graduate of UNC-Greensboro and have been teaching since 1998. I have taught second through fifth grade and currently teach third.
My husband, Jeff, and I have two boys, Joseph (8th grade) and Ryan (5th grade), and a few furry critters at home. We love music, books, and spending time with our family. We are Carolina Panther and UNC fans all the way!
At their August meeting, the Johnston County Board of Education voted 4-3 to make face coverings required indoors in all Johnston County Public Schools campuses and on all buses for students, staff, and guests. This updated mask requirement is effective immediately.
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.
We are happy to report that buses and carpool are running more smoothly each day, and we want to say thank you for your patience. Please remember that K-2 car riders will begin to load at 3:50 and 3-5 car riders will begin to load at 4:00. It is very important for the safety of our students that all cars picking up students have an official RDE carpool tag.
We are very excited to welcome our 1st through 5th grade students and their families back to school at our Open House event tomorrow night, Thursday, August 19th. Students whose last names begin with the letters L-Z are scheduled to visit their classrooms and meet their teachers from 4:00-5:00pm. Students whose last names begin with the letters A-K are scheduled to visit their classrooms and meet their teachers from 5:30-6:30pm.
We are excited to welcome students back to our buildings full time beginning Monday, August 23. We look forward to a wonderful school year for all. Throughout the school year you will receive many important messages from our ConnectEd system. Tonight, I would like to share a few reminders with you about our Board of Education’s decision to require face coverings in our buildings.
Our yearbooks are finally here! Students that purchased a yearbook will receive it during orientation on August 19th. It will be in your child's classroom. Students attending Thanksgiving Elementary or Archer Lodge Middle will receive the yearbook at their current school.
