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!

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.
