SCHOOL SPOTLIGHT JANET LEBO Principal, River Dell Elementary
Janet has been very impressed with the level of support she has received in her first month from faculty and staff and can already tell that River Dell is a special school filled with people who love not only the students, but each other. For twenty-one years she has been blessed to be called to this great profession. Her commitment to the parents, students, and staff will be to put children first. “I want people who visit River Dell to walk away from our school with the knowledge that the children at this school are cared for and that we strive to help each child grow toward their own individual highest potential.”
Principal, East Clayton Elementary “I’m very excited to be the new Principal at East Clayton Elementary and am looking forward to working with Flowers Plantation families.” Jamie was an administrator for Johnston County for seven years and has recently become an official Johnston County resident. She comes to East Clayton most recently from Powhatan Elementary School and has two children, eight and ten years old, and a husband who works in Durham.
