Mrs. Kelly Fish
I have taught for 19 years and have spent my entire career at Cooper. I began in first grade where I taught for 17 years. I looped up to 2nd grade and stayed there for 2 years. This year I am looping up to 3rd with many of my 2nd grade virtual students from last school year. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from UNC-Chapel Hill (with a Math & Science concentration) and a Master's Degree in Reading Education from ECU. I have been married for 18 years and have 2 children that also attend(ed) Cooper (Bella-6th grade & Gabe-4th grade). I grew up in Rochester, NY and moved to NC after graduating high school. North Carolina is definitely my forever home and the beach is my happy place!
I hope everyone had a GREAT summer! We are going to have such an AWESOME third grade year! I would like to give a very warm welcome to all my students...

We are sharing information with our families about the Targeted Support & Improvement State Level guidance for schools who have underperformed on state-wide assessments during the past few years. Of course, last year we did not have End-of-Grade testing in North Carolina due to COVID-19 school closures.

Johnston County Public Schools is always striving to provide students and families with exemplary service. In most cases, school bus transportation is essential for many students to access a quality education. In order to meet our daily goal, it is necessary to implement change that enhances and improves our overall operation. As we prepare for the 2022-2023 school year, JCPS Transportation Services and School Nutrition will be hosting a Summer Information Fair at each high school.
Our district is launching a new portion of our website to further communicate bus delays and replacements with our families. We encourage those who have a student who utilizes our transportation to get to or from school to visit www.johnston.k12.nc.us/busdelays for updates on our school bus routes beginning Tuesday, January 18.
The Johnston County Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the 2022 Johnston County Public Schools salary schedule at their regularly scheduled Dec. 14 meeting.
