Welcome to 5th grade in Room 17!

Welcome to 5th grade in Room 17 at Veterans Elementary School! I am Ms. Pellettera and I am excited to have the privilege to spend my fifth year in 5th grade with you. Before I became a teacher, I was a stay at home mom to my three children, a classroom volunteer, and a PTC board member here at Veterans Elementary. My children are 17, 14, and 12 years old and we also have an adorable 3 year old puppy named Elvis.
Students will be learning so much this year! In fifth grade, we study our nation's history, space, fractions, multiple genres of literature, and so much more. It will be a fun year of hard work, changes, and growth, but the activities we have the opportunity to participate in will enhance your learning, build character, and create fond memories. 
The most important thing you should know about Room 17 is that we are a team! Although students will spend many hours throughout the year with me, I believe that if students, families, and teachers work together, we can help every child achieve their 5th grade goals! If there are any questions or concerns you'd like me to address, I can be contacted at If you'd like to reach me by phone, please dial 387-7050, extension 7517.

Cheers to the 2019- 2020 school year!
