Calling all former Del Mar Heights students — share your memories of Dorothy Waite for celebration event

The Del Mar Heights School community is hosting a celebration of former Del Mar Heights teacher Dorothy Waite and is soliciting former students, coworkers and parents to write well wishes for her memory book.  Dorothy would enjoy a written (remember this is 4th grade writing test year) favorite memory and/or update  from her students.  Also being accepted and welcomed are current student photos, photos of you and Dorothy together or a photo from your time in Dorothy’s class. Parents are also welcome to contribute and to encourage their students to contribute.

Notes can be on any size paper 8.5 x 11” or smaller and can be e-mailed to or mailed to Kathy Zack, Del Mar Heights School,13555 Boquita Drive, Del Mar, 92014.

Please send in your contribution by May 20 so the book can be presented at the June 1 celebration event.

Beloved teacher Dorothy Waite started teaching in Del Mar in August 1994 and has touched countless students and parents’ lives with her intelligence, her witty humor and her enthusiasm for life and learning.  From early morning collections of recyclables for the San Diego Zoo Cans for Critters Programs to lunch-time direction of the Del Mar Heights Chorus to after-school operations of student performances, Dorothy Waite did it all.

Please save the date of June 1 at 2:30 p.m. for a tea held in Dorothy’s honor.
