William "Tony" Jones
Our new school year has begun! And we would like to say, "Welcome to the Jungle." We have an exciting year planned for the children and for the parents. I am originally from Smithfield, NC but moved away after high school. I traveled around, lived in a few places, but eventually I came back home to be closer to family. This is my 2nd year teaching at Powhatan Elementary School and my 15th year working with children. I graduated from The University of Mount Olive with a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education with a birth thru Kindergarten license. I just finished my Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education with a concentration in Special Education. I would like everyone to remember that our door is always open and we welcome all parents to join us in class whenever possible!
As we anticipate a return to a normal school year in 2021-2022, with our students participating in face-to-face instruction five days a week, we are offering an exciting new opportunity for families. In the fall of 2021 we will open a new school, the JCPS Virtual Academy, for any student interested in grades K-12.
While face masks are still required in all of our indoor facilities, students, staff, and guests of our campuses are no longer required to wear a face covering when outdoors. Students and staff may continue to wear masks when participating in recess or outdoor activities if they choose to do so.
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.
Johnston County Public Schools has updated its plan to mark senior milestones, including prom and graduation while adhering to guidance from the Johnston County Public Health Department and the CDC in regards to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
