Hi! My name is Dana Bottomley. This will be my 14th year teaching and my fourth year at Cleveland Middle School. I teach theatre arts and chorus. I have previously taught fourth grade (all subjects) and sixth grade math, language arts, and social studies. I love helping children answer the question, "When am I going to use this in my life?" I also love helping children discover the magic of the arts - working as a team, problem solving, and thinking on their feet! In my free time I enjoy going to the theatre, singing, and reading!

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.
