Ms. Katie Cannada
Welcome to First Grade! My name is Katie Cannada and this is my fifth year teaching. I graduated from the University of North Carolina Wilmington with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education in May 2015. I have lived in North Carolina my entire life. I'm a boy mom to Brayden (2.5 years) and Ryder (1 month)! In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, vacationing, shopping, reading, and decorating. I'm looking forward to a fun-filled year with my students!
2019-2020 Daily Schedule
8:50-9:00 Morning Meeting
As your child begins third grade, you will see a concentrated focus in ensuring students can read at or above grade level and is making progress in reading proficiency, so they 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 within the first 20 days of face to face instruction, October 26 - November 23, 2020
We know this is year will be different for everyone...students, families and staff, so we want to do all we can to keep you informed and answer any questions that you may have during this time.
Every JCPS parent must fill out the Second Semester Choice form to choose either the Virtual Program OR face-to-face instruction for each of their students. The Second Semester Choice form is to be filled out for ALL students in grades PreK-12. If a child is going to participate in face-to-face instruction for the second semester, the parent will be asked to fill out transportation information for the student in the form. A form for each student should be completed by Nov. 30.
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.
