Dear Mariemont Families and Students,

    Welcome new, and familiar families to Mariemont! It is my pleasure to introduce myself as your new principal of Mariemont Elementary School. I am extremely excited about joining such a wonderful community and school, and look forward to meeting you all hopefully at some point in the near future. I come to Mariemont by way of the San Juan Unified School District central office, where I was a Director for Elementary Education for six years. Prior to that I was a principal in San Juan for fourteen years and a teacher of general education and special education for ten years. I bring a unique perspective to Mariemont having had many different experiences in education. Education and life-long learning are my passion!  

    My philosophy of learning is that together we succeed. Parents, teachers, support staff, and administration all have an important role to encourage our children in becoming marvelous citizens. In today’s current situation, we will work together to ensure that everyone has a successful school year! 

    In closing, I wanted to first introduce myself as your new principal and to also let you know that I will be sending another message to you shortly regarding important information for the 2020-2021 school year. If you do not receive an email from me with this message, please contact myself or Ruth Worthen, secretary, ASAP so that we can update your information in our system in order for you to receive pertinent information as we begin the school year. Or, you can simply go onto the parent portal where you can make changes yourself.

    I look forward to working with you all!


    Cris Petroni

    Principal, Mariemont Elementary
