Mrs. Melanie O'Dell

This school year has been like no other, with challenges none of us have ever experienced.  Despite the struggles and constant changes, we have endured and even succeeded.  I want to take a moment to thank the students and the parents that have worked so hard to meet and overcome the obstacles that have been placed in our 2020 journey.  I am so thankful for all of you and know that without your support from home, we would not be successful and our students would not achieve.  Over the next few weeks, I wish for peace, health, safety, and joy for each and every family.  I look forward to seeing all my students' bright smiling faces in our Google Meet on January 4th.  HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Remote Learning will start back on January 4th for all Johnston County Public School Children.

 

Please feel free to reach out to me if you need anything.  You can reach me by email, Class Dojo, Google Classroom, or by calling the school.
