director's welcome

To the Families of Datzyk School,

I have been in close contact with all of our teachers and know that they are looking forward to the start of this new academic year. I trust that you, and your children, will make many new friends here at DMS. 

Although Datzyk has changed in various ways during the last half century, the mission has remained the same: to educate the whole child, and to guide children along the unique paths of their educational journeys. We have important concepts and ideas to relay in each of the core subject areas, but carefully allow ourselves to be directed by the evolving interests of the students in our classrooms. Because of our willingness to be guided by the children’s  interests, we explore the concepts and ideas in a unique way each academic year.

I am pleased to announce that we have added two new members to the DMS staff. Mrs. Amber Moralis will be assisting in the toddler’s classroom, and Miss Marielle Seche will be taking the place of Mrs. Cherie Messick in the four year olds’ classroom. After ten years of dedication to DMS, Mrs. Messick is embarking on a new adventure in her home state of Maryland. She will always be a part of the DMS family, and we are already looking forward to her first visit!

Should you have a desire to contact me or the office, please feel free to do so either by calling 610-395-6344, or by sending an email to, or

Thank you for your continued support, and for your decision to allow the Datzyk Montessori School the privilege of educating your children. 

Warmest Regards,

Linda R. Turrisi, Director
