Mr. Brandon Nishnick
I am excited to start my 2nd year at Polenta Elementary as your student's 5th grade teacher! Last year, I was honored to receive the Outstanding Beginning Teacher of the Year Award at Polenta Elementary. Previously I spent 13 years in accounting, and I decided to make a career switch in order to make an impact on my students. My parents were both teachers, so I am no stranger to public education inside and outside of the classroom. My mother taught elementary school, while my father taught middle school. I am married and have two girls who are in elementary school as well. I look forward in working with you and your student!

We are offering a new opportunity for our families this winter break. Parents are invited to sign up to receive holiday meal kits that will be distributed from all of our high school sites. Each meal kit will include seven days of packaged breakfast and lunch meals per child.
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.
