Cogliano Reunion at Pandola Education Center

The Reverend Oreste Pandola Learning Center was so proud to host a very special day for the Cogliano Family of Severa Park, Maryland.

After taking Bocce lessons at our Center last spring, Mrs. Janet and Mr. Joe though it would be a very unique way to have a reunion, celebrate their Italian heritage and culture, and enjoy delicious food. After consulting with family members from various states, Mrs. Janet contacted us to begin plans for a date in the fall. On Saturday, September 22, twelve family members arrived at our Center ready to participate in a great experience.

Teams were devised, instruction initiated, and play began on the courts for the first two hours. Lunch was delivered by Mr. Joseph Gardella of Joe Benny's of our Little Italy Community, and it was thoroughly enjoyed by our team members. After resting, eating, relaxing with family members, play resumed. After several games, the family members express thanks and appreciation for a fantastic day.

This day would not have been possible without the dedicated support of our staff and volunteers. Appreciation must be given to Mr. P. J. O'Neil for substituting as instructor for this day. He conducted amazing lessons. Our regular volunteer teachers, Fran Blattermann and Frank Corazza were unable to participate. Fran did help with opening the office and providing assistance. Special "Grazie" to the heart of our Center, Tony Walmsley for his hard work and service throughout the day and the entire school sessions.

Dear Students and Friends of the Pandola Learning Center,

On September 4, 2018, the school was notified of a change in dates of events planned for the St. Leo's School Hall during October and September. These changes will greatly impact our schedule of classes and school functions for the fall session. Please note the following changes:

  • The new date of the. St. Leo's Annual Ravioli dinner is Sunday, November 4, 2018.
  • The delicious ravioli will be made on the new dates of Oct. 6 and 13 in our school hall.
  • Date for making the scrumptious meatballs is Saturday, November 3, 2018.

Since it has been our tradition to close the school the week before the dinner, classes will not be held the week of OCT. 28 --November 3. Please check the classes and changes in the new dates for various classes scheduled during the first two weeks of November. Sessions will resume the week of November 5, 2018. A new flyer will be printed to reflect this information. We deeply regret any inconvenience.

The Annual Ravioli Dinner is a vital fundraiser for our church. Plan to help make the ravioli and meatballs. Please attend and support it.

Looking forward to exciting and interesting classes.

Rosalie Ranieri, Principal
