Mrs. Dawn Pellegrino
I have always had a passion for teaching which is why I decided to follow my heart and make a career change. I graduated from East Carolina University in December of 2010. I joined Riverwood in 2011 and I have taught kindergarten and fourth grade. I was born and raised in New Jersey and relocated to North Carolina, and love it! I am married and have two stepsons and a daughter. In my spare time I enjoy spending quality time with family and friends, traveling, cooking and shopping. I am looking forward to a successful year!
Every JCPS parent must fill out the Second Semester Choice form to choose either the Virtual Program OR face-to-face instruction for each of their students. The Second Semester Choice form is to be filled out for ALL students in grades PreK-12. If a child is going to participate in face-to-face instruction for the second semester, the parent will be asked to fill out transportation information for the student in the form. A form for each student should be completed by Nov. 30.
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.
