It is with a heavy heart that I am reaching out to let you know of the passing of Mario DiChiara, the husband of Rita DiChiara who teaches English at Merrick Avenue Middle School and at the Meadowbrook Alternative Program and the brother-in-law of Anna DiCiara, who teaches Italian at Merrick Avenue. Here is a link to the GoFundMe page created in memory of Mario.
Please keep Rita and her family in your thoughts during these most difficult of times.
