St. Margaret School in Narberth, the regional Catholic elementary school for seven local surrounding parishes, will celebrate two of its veteran teachers this Friday, May 20 in an afternoon celebration at the school gymnasium.
Second grade teacher Dolores Lopresti has taught for 40 years at St. Margaret School and first grade teacher Jane Krause has devoted 35 of her 40 years in education at the school.
Also at St. Margaret’s this year, all the Reading Olympics teams achieved Blue Ribbons this year, the highest rating in the competition. Selected school band members participated in the Archdiocesan Honors Band and Festival Jazz Band, and the school’s band received a superior rating for its performance at a competition at Villanova University.
The boys’ JV basketball team won the regional CYO championship, as did the boys’ track team.
For nearly 100 years, St. Margaret School has been stimulating the minds of its students and cultivating the potential of every student. A number of graduates receive academic scholarships averaging over $300,000 annually.
