Mrs. Lesley Pender
Hello! My name is Lesley Pender and I teach Reading Enrichment. I am married and have two sons, ages 12 years old and 2 years old. I graduated from NC State (Go Wolfpack!) and I am certified to teach Language Arts and Social Studies (Grades 6-9). I am also AIG certified, and I am the sponsor for the Beta Club chapter here at Riverwood Middle.
I am excited about this school year! Please feel free to contact me anytime.
At this time, all traditional high school graduations are still planned for May 29. Graduation ceremonies for Johnston County Early College Academy and Johnston County Career and Technical Leadership Academy will now take place on May 16th, rather than the original date of May 15th.
The Johnston County Board of Education will hold a budget work session on Tuesday, April 27. The meeting will begin at 5:00 p.m. and be held in the Evander Simpson Building in Smithfield.
