Mrs. Petagno's Message
It is an honor and a privilege to serve as the Principal of Cranberry Pines Elementary School. After almost nine years serving as a Supervisor of Instruction in the Medford Township Public Schools, I am thrilled to now be at Cranberry Pines and be a part of this amazing community of students, families, and staff.
In my over 20 years in education, I have taught grades K-6, been an instructional coach, and was a supervisor of instruction. Whether in the classroom as a teacher or in a role where I have supported classroom instruction, my focus has always been on the students. I look forward to continuing to build bonds with the students and staff at Cranberry Pines to support them in reaching their potential and in being the best they can be.
My mission as Principal of Cranberry Pines is to build a culture of kindness and respect. I live by the words of Theodore Roosevelt, "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care". It is my goal to ensure that each and every student and staff member knows that I care about them and their well-being and I believe they can succeed.
Please know that I am always available to address concerns and welcome any ideas you may have to improve the student experience at Cranberry Pines.
