Loren Pepe, principal of Killington Elementary School, is moving to Rutland Intermediate School this fall.
KILLINGTON - Educators generally tidy up their desks at the end of the school year, but this year, one local administrator will do somewhat more than that. Loren Pepe, principal of the Killington Elementary School, will step down after 23 years at KES to become one of two assistant principals at Rutland Intermediate School. "It just feels like it's the right time for me to make a change in my life," Pepe said. Pepe's own children went through the Rutland City schools, and she said this is a chance for her to give back to the community that educated them. She said she had been wanting to give back for a while now, and thought of possibly joining the city School Board. "It just didn't fit in with my schedule," she said. "I was worried it would take away from what was going on here at my school." So when the job opened in Rutland, she said it was a good sign for her to head in that direction. Pepe started out at KES as a special educator in 1991 and worked her way up to principal in 2005. She said her responsibilities at Rutland Intermediate won't be too far off from what she has been doing, just in a different space and at a new level. But of the 21 applicants for the assistant principal position, Pepe was the most qualified candidate for that challenge. And even though Pepe has been on the education scene since 1985, she continues to further her own education by taking graduate courses. "I think this will be a good way for me to learn," she said of her new job. But leaving the school that collects maple sap and incorporates skiing into the curriculum doesn't come without a touch of sadness. "I love my work here, and I will absolutely miss the people and the children," Pepe said. "Loren will be missed by the community, the teachers, staff and the parents at KES, but, most importantly, by the students who have been the recipients of her unconditional encouragement and support for over 20 years," Iannantuoni said. "Everyone wishes Mrs. Pepe well as she takes on the challenges of a new role," Iannantuoni said. "And we look forward to continuing the tradition of excellence that Mrs. Pepe has so steadfastly nurtured at our school."

Loren Pepe, principal of Killington Elementary, shared highlights about the school year.
"Our students find success, confidence and the ability to take risks," Pepe said. She pointed to results from the New England Common Assessment Program, or NECAP, which showed that 96 percent of students were proficient or better in reading and writing, compared with 70 percent statewide.
