As the summer progresses and we are gearing up for another school year, I would like to announce that M. Jean-Claude Diatta will be replacing Mme Houfaidi as Oak principal and Mme Werner will be stepping in as Vice-Principal. M. Diatta joined Académie Lafayette 20 years ago as an elementary school teacher. He has been Vice-Principal and Curriculum Director the last 5 years. He earned an Education Specialist degree in Urban Leadership from the University of Central Missouri. Dorothée Werner has been teaching at Académie Lafayette for 8 years. She has just completed a Master's Degree in School Leadership from Baker University.
The school reopening task force is continuing its work: teachers were surveyed this week to gage how they feel and so the school can support them to be fully prepared for whatever model is adopted. Please mark your calendars for the parent town hall on Tuesday, July 14th, 6-7pm on our FB page ( https://www.facebook.com/LafayetteKC/ ). You can submit your questions ahead of time here.
Have a safe and fun 4th of July!
Head of School
