• Welcome to a new school year!  I hope you had a wonderful summer and enjoyed spending quality time with your child.  I certainly did!  I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a bit about myself.  I am a mom of two, a 5 year old girl and a 7 year old boy.  I have been teaching for 17 years in all grades 1-5.  This is my 5th year at Pinnacle School #35 and I am thoroughly enjoying my time here getting to know all of the great families.

    I believe all children can succeed when supplied with the appropriate “tools” and skills.  There are several ways I will work to meet individual needs including progress monitoring, one on one and small group instruction, and independent work activities.  Students will be learning with a “hands on” approach and will be using critical thinking throughout the year to build necessary skills for success.

    Communication is very important to me and I am looking forward to developing working relationships with all of my families.  One way you can contact me is through my school phone at 271-4583 ext. 2050.  Leaving a message is best and I will always do my best to return your call in a timely manner.  Another effective way to communicate is through my email at tara.pellegrino@rcsdk12.org.   Please feel free to contact me regarding questions or concerns.  Do not hesitate as I hope to work closely with you regarding the success of your child.
