This Year-Opening Retreat of faculty and staff was conducted on June 15, 2012 at Grade 4 classroom with Pastor Benjie Gevera, School Chaplain facilitating the morning session.  The theme was “Learning to Interpret the Spiritual Sign” in connection with the DLA over-all theme for this year as ““DLA, Unleashing Our Potentials  and Using Them for God’s Glory”

 

DLA keeps same strong personnel force. DLA maintains the same school personnel force this school year with not lower than two years of service and a maximum of twenty years indicating a high morale and personnel retention which is a plus in any institution. Three members of the faculty were promoted to regular status after completing their three years probationary period.  They were Ms. Jocelyn Vedia, Ms. Genievieve Subion and Ms. Cynthia Macario. The three DLA teachers who are pursuing graduate studies in De La Salle University-Dasmariñas just completed their academic requirements and now preparing for their comprehensive exams to qualify them for thesis writing. There were some adjustments in the teaching assignments particularly in the primary level. Teacher Jingle Ancheta who is now the School Principal only handles English 4-6, Teacher Ana Marie Samuya was assigned as Grade 6 class adviser from Grade 4 with the same subject being taught.  Teacher Cynthia Macario took Grade 4 advisory and still the Guidance Councilor. The DLA School Personnel were consecrated on June 3, 2012 during worship service.  For the profile of faculty and staff for SY 2012-2013 listed according to Grade level advisorship from Nursery to Grade 6 and Administration, please check out the ‘DLA  Faculty and Staff’ tag.
