April 2, 2014 Wednesday Letter

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the first week of April! You will notice that the name at the bottom of this letter is a bit different. I am happy to share with my De LaSalle Academy family that I was married on March 30th. It will take a while for me to adjust to a new name, and I’m sure that will be the case for everyone else, too. I’ll certainly answer to either name J.

There is another change at De LaSalle this week. Taking over Ms. Kalka’s classes is Mrs. Betsy Child. Mrs. Child has twenty-four years of teaching experience and she brings a wealth of knowledge regarding child development and educational methodology. In addition, she will share with De LaSalle Academy her great heart and passion for children and her strong belief in the potential within every child. Thank you for giving Mrs. Child a friendly De LaSalle welcome!

Have a beautiful week!

Mrs. Lori Riti
