Mrs. Jeannette Parrish
Can you believe that summer is almost over and it's just about time to return to school? Hopefully, this year will be a lot more normal! I hope that you have had a restful and relaxing summer. I want to share just a few reminders for upcoming events. Meet the teacher will be held on Thursday evening, August 19th, from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. As you arrive be sure to take note of our new school sign if you have not seen it yet. It's awesome! School supply lists are located on the school web page by grade level. Please pay close attention to notebook sizes as the indicated size will be needed. I can't wait to see everyone at "Meet the Teacher" and students again on the first day of school which will be August 23rd! Enjoy the remainder of your break.

Homework for the Week:
Students will have homework Monday through Thursday nights. Students are responsible for entering their homework into their daily planner. Please review these planners nightly and sign as this lets us know that you are aware of assignments, deadlines, upcoming events and use the planner to communicate with the teacher. Thanks so much for your continued assistance and support.
As your child begins third grade, you will see a concentrated focus in ensuring students can read at or above grade level and are making progress in reading proficiency. The goal is to ensure all third grade students can read, comprehend, integrate, and apply complex texts needed for secondary education and career success. As part of the Read to Achieve law (G.S. §115C-83.1) passed by the General Assembly in 2012, your child will take the Beginning-of-Grade 3 (BOG3) Reading Test to establish a baseline measure of beginning third-grade reading skills. This test will be administered on September 7, 2021.
Parents, If you have not received your login for the Parent Portal, PLEASE update your child's records with a current email address. You will need to send a note with your child to have your email address updated. Please include your name, your child's name, and your current email address on the note. Mrs. Williams will then be able to update your records and activate your PowerSchool Parent Portal login.
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.
