Hello! My name is Meredith Appelt. This is my first year as a member of the staff at St. Rita Catholic School. I am the 5th and 6th grade aide. The previous two years I was a substitute at St. Rita. I have two kids at the school. My son is in the 8th grade (where did the time go?), and my daughter is in the 3rd grade. I live in the neighborhood with my husband, Robert, our kids, dog and four chickens.
