Welcome to Mr. Petrillo's Homepage!

Hello! My name is Mr. Petrillo and I am ecstatic to be your 8th Grade Physical Science teacher! Although I am teaching science, I enjoy MANY things outside of the classroom!


I enjoy being outdoors and staying active. I have been on many outdoor adventures including two trips to California, a trip to Arizona and various trips up and down the East Coast.  My favorite outdoor activities are hiking, camping, hammocking, and playing sports.  A close second preferred activity of mine would be watching the Dallas Cowboys beat the Philadelphia Eagles.


I have wanted to be a teacher ever since I was in middle school. I had multiple teachers who showed me the importance of education. I am so excited to help you understand the importance of learning.


I want to say thank you in advance for an awesome year and I look forward to meeting every single one of you!
