Ms. Heather Chitwood
Welcome to Ms. Chitwood's 1st-grade class!
I am so excited to work with you and your child! It’s going to be a year full of fun, learning, and lots of adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us! I thought you might like to know a little bit about me.
This is my fifth year teaching at McGee’s Crossroads Elementary School and my eleventh year of elementary teaching. I attended Cape Fear High School and received my Masters in Elementary Education in 2012. I have two teenage daughters, my oldest is in the AVID program at SSS and my youngest is attending the virtual academy this year. I also have a dog, Autumn and a cat, Charlie.
My hope is to instill a love for learning in my students. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. It is so important to keep communication open between us. I look forward to a great year together!
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.
