Mrs. Vanessa Batts
Hello everybody! My name is Vanessa Batts and I am the Media Coordinator at CHES. I grew up in Johnston County and love being able to work in the community where I live. I am married and have one sweet fur-baby ~ a yellow lab named Jimbo. This will be my 11th year teaching and my 3rd year as the Media Coordinator. Before coming into the Media Center, I taught third grade for 8 years. I have always had a passion for reading and for teaching students to LOVE reading as well. Being in a room full of books everyday and showing students how much fun you can have while you read is my dream job. I can't wait to read and have fun with all of the students at CHES each day!
We are so thankful for our outpouring of support from our community during this time of need. Many people have called, emailed, and messaged looking for ways to volunteer or offer donations. In order to be able to organize this effort, we ask that anyone wishing to volunteer or supply donations fill out this brief support form.
At this time, all traditional high school graduations are still planned for May 29. Graduation ceremonies for Johnston County Early College Academy and Johnston County Career and Technical Leadership Academy will now take place on May 16th, rather than the original date of May 15th.
The April Johnston County Board of Education meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 7. The virtual meeting will begin at 4:00 p.m and will be conducted via Zoom To Comply With Social Distancing Orders. Members of the public make access the meeting via livestream.
