Sister Anne Rita Mauck

Sister Anne Rita Mauck, Founder of The de Paul School, passed away on Monday, August 28 at Nazareth Home. Sister Anne Rita turned 90 just one month ago, and many of us attended that celebration of her birthday and legacy.
Sister Anne Rita Mauck, Founder
Sister founded The de Paul School in 1970. Approximately twelve additional de Paul Schools were subsequently started throughout the country, each inspired by Sister’s passion for teaching bright students with learning differences. As she would often say, “It’s not a learning disability… it’s a teaching disability!” Sister’s rich knowledge of pedagogy – the art of instruction – distinguished her as an acclaimed expert in our field.

Over the decades, Sister charged faculty and staff at her school to “always keep the child at the center of everything you do.” Sister, in loving memory and deep gratitude to you, we pledge to continue honoring that charge every single instructional day.

Rest in Peace, Dear Friend of Thousands!
-Tony Kemper, Head of School

Celebrating Birthdays At de Paul

We want each and every one of our students to feel celebrated and appreciated on their birthday. We encourage you to come join your student for lunch on that day, or to send in trinkets for your student to share with his/her team.

If you desire to share a dessert snack with your student's team, please adhere to the following guidelines:
  • Contact your student's teacher in advance. 2-3 days’ notice gives teachers adequate time to adjust lesson plans for the day.
  • Consider healthier alternatives (fruit-based, etc.).
  • Due to significant allergies, please do not send any products containing nuts, nut products, or chocolate. Please communicate the list of ingredients to the teacher ahead of time.
  • Please supply napkins, plates, and/or serving utensils if necessary.

The Science of Team 2

This school year, Ms. Gray can be found with Ms. Mehlbauer leading Team 2.

Team 2 learned about the scientific method this week. For their experiment, they used a pencil to tap mason jars filled with different amounts of water.

Not only did Team 2 learn how the amount of water affected the sound of the mason jars – they learned about asking questions, forming a hypothesis, making observations, and recording results.
