Mrs. Stephanie Pierce
Greetings All-Stars and welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! I am excited for our home-run year together. This is my fourth year at Polenta Elementary teaching the English side of the 3rd grade Dual Language Program. Originally from Pennsylvania, I attended Millersville University for my Bachelor's in Elementary Education, and later I attended Kutztown University for my Master's in Elementary Education. I taught for 5 years in Pennsylvania before moving to North Carolina. Using teamwork and good sportmanship, we will work hard to learn, grow, and be successful human beings. I look forward to meeting you and all the adventures we will experience together this year!
The daily schedule will be coming soon but there will be lots of learning happening this year!
The Johnston County Board of Education voted to return all Pre-K and EC-Self Contained students to Plan B, four days per week, beginning on Tuesday, Jan. 19. These students will participate in face-to-face instruction on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, with Wednesday serving as a remote learning day. All other students in grades K-12 will remain on Plan C until Monday, Feb. 1.
Due to Johnston County being designated a “red” county by the NCDHHS, as well as increased quarantines and COVID cases in the school district as reflected on our dashboard, the Johnston County Board of Education voted to have ALL students, including Pre-K and EC self contained, return to remote learning under Plan C, beginning Monday, December 14 through Friday, January 15. Unless the remote learning period is extended beyond January 15th, students will return to the plan that they chose on the Second Semester Choice form on Tuesday, January 19.
