The Loudoun County School Board last week appointed Michael Pellegrino as the first principal of Waxpool Elementary.
Waxpool Elementary, now under construction, will become Loudoun County’s 59th public elementary school when it opens for the 2019-20 school year.
Pellegrino has served as the principal of Evergreen Mill Elementary since 2011. He was Loudoun County’s Principal of the Year in 2016. Prior to his service at Evergreen Mill, Pellegrino served as the principal of Lucketts Elementary (2007-11) and as an assistant principal at Ball’s Bluff Elementary (2003-2007) and Meadowland Elementary (2000-2001).
Pellegrino holds a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from East Stroudsburg University and a master’s degree in education from Shenandoah University.
