RUMFORD — After the successful implementation of a new blended learning program last year, Holy Savior School (prekindergarten through eighth grade) welcomes new staff members as the school continues to enhance its project-based, educational approach.

Michelle Ladd has been named as the school’s new head teacher and will focus on the fifth, sixth and seventh grades. Ladd, who is a member of Holy Savior Parish and previously served as a middle school teacher at Holy Savior School, most recently worked at Dirigo Middle School in Dixfield.

Paul Condello has been appointed as Holy Savior’s new elementary school teacher and will assist with technology implementation. He has experience teaching students of all ages and most recently was an ESL teacher, working with Chinese students through an online educational program.

Marianne Pelletier, principal of Saint Dominic Academy’s Lewiston campus, will assume the role of administrative liaison between the academy and Holy Savior, in addition to her current duties at Saint Dominic. Pelletier holds two master’s degrees, in special education and school administration, and has served as a public school and Catholic school principal, a special education teacher, a teacher for the blind and a director of a residential treatment center for emotionally disturbed children. In 2014, Pelletier received the Innovation in Catholic Education Award, presented by Today’s Catholic Teacher magazine. She has also served on the executive board of the National Catholic Educational Association.

In the second year of the program, the collaboration between Holy Savior and Saint Dominic Academy will increase as staff members at the academy will offer assistance with enrollment, communication, information technology and administrative duties.

Registration remains open for the 2017-2018 academic year with a student rate of $2,950 or a family rate of $7,400.
