Welcome to Kindergarten!

My name is Tara Petrino and this is my fourth year teaching kindergarten at St. Ann Academy.  I look forward to spending the school year with your children.  Their excitement for learning is contagious - I learn something along with them each day!

Our classroom aide, Marisella Rivera, and I are dedicated to creating an environment where children feel respected, cared for, and are appropriately challenged each day.

Please check out my "Useful Links" page which includes a link to VIRTUS Online.  In order to volunteer at school or attend some school events (including our Thanksgiving Feast), parents must attend the "Protecting God's Children" training offered by VIRTUS.  The site allows viewers to see and register for upcoming sessions in our area.  Please do not delay in your completion of this program!
