First Grade Teacher

Mrs. Lauren Kempf

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! This will be my 6th year teaching First Grade at Polenta Elementary. I attended Dowling College on Long Island, NY for both my Bachelor's Degree and my Master's Degree in Secondary Education. When I moved to North Carolina 13 years ago, I completed my Praxis exam to become certified in Elementary Education. I look forward to getting to know and working with your child this year!

  • Updated Social Distancing Procedures

    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.
