Salesianum impresses on both sides of ball in football opener at Concord

By

Dialog reporter

 

BRANDYWINE HUNDRED – Salesianum faced an early start in its season-opening football game Sept. 9 at Concord, but the hour didn’t seem to make a difference. The Sals came out and displayed a multi-pronged offense and a stout defense in a 34-6 win over the Raiders.

Sallies, ranked third in Division I by 302 Sports, set the tone on their first possession of the game. Jassiem Lynch returned the kickoff to the Salesianum 37-yard line, and the offense went to work under the guidance of senior quarterback Zach Gwynn. They marched down the field, converting a fourth down along the way. On a second-and-10 from the Raiders’ 37, Gwynn hit a leaping Logan Bushweller with a 34-yard pass, setting up a first and goal. Nick Merlino punched it in from two yards out for the 7-0 lead. Read more »

Special-education program grows, gives parents a Catholic school option

WILMINGTON — The last sentence of the mission statement for St. Anthony of Padua School says it is “committed to providing a Catholic education to those who desire it.” An initiative that started last year has allowed St. Anthony’s to welcome another group of students.

The school in Wilmington’s Little Italy hired a full-time special-education teacher last year, fulfilling one of the hopes of principal Judy White.

“It had been a wish for a long time. I’ve always wanted to have an inclusive school where we could take everyone,” she said. Read more »

Local talent fills principal’s role at Good Shepherd School

Pileggi started part-time at Perryville school, was given new responsibilities until she now leads school

PERRYVILLE, Md. — When Good Shepherd School found itself needing a new principal following this past school year, the search did not take them too far. The successor was sitting in an office next to the retiring Sharon Hodges – that is, when she wasn’t teaching health and physical education or instructing students in computers.

Jenifer Pileggi has been a “jill” of many trades at the small Cecil County, Md., school, starting nine years ago as a phys-ed teacher two days a week. She used her degree in health education to introduce that into the curriculum as well. The school asked her to add computers to her responsibilities a few years later, adding a third workday to her week. It wasn’t long before she assumed the assistant principal’s role, filling out her five-day week. Read more »
