Meet Mrs. Huddleston:
Welcome to First Grade! My father was in the Air Force and was stationed in Japan. That's where I was born on July 4. He was a teacher for many years and then a principal. He is now retired. My parents lived in the mountains for many years, but they have recently moved to Johnston County only 15 minutes from my house. When I was growing up, we lived many places, but my favorite was when we lived in Boone. I still love the NC mountains. I went to college at Appalachian State University. This is my 25th year at West Clayton and after 23 years in second grade I am excited to be back in first grade. I have been married for 29 years. We have a 24 year old son, Matthew. He recently graduated from NC State University with a degree in meteorology. He is the new weekend meteorologist for WWAY in Wilmington. We have two dogs named Lizzy and Freddy. They are a beagle/coonhound mix and are 3 years old. In my free time I love to read. My two favorite authors are Nicholas Sparks and Danielle Steel. I love to collect angels, snowmen, and flip-flops.

Mrs. Huddleston's Schedule: 2020-2021
For the past 15 years, Johnston County Public Schools has honored our local veterans with a special Veterans Day celebration program. The 2020 celebration will be held virtually on Wednesday, Nov. 11. The online program begins at 11 a.m., and a link to the program will be posted...
Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
As students in grades K-5 begin returning to school, the curbside locations for free meals will now be located at each middle and high school. The curbside meal locations at our elementary schools will end on Friday, Oct. 2 and will open at the middle and high schools on Monday, Oct. 5.
The Johnston County Board of Education approved a back to school plan at a special called session on Thursday, Sept. 25.
There are no upcoming events to display.
