Andersen open house Wednesday

By Marjorie Isaacson 

Andersen Elementary School, 1148 N. Honore St., has been reborn as the LaSalle II Magnet School.

The curriculum for students in kindergarten through third grade is modeled on the successful LaSalle Language Academy, 1734 N. Orleans in Old Town. LaSalle II will focus primarily on acquisition of a second language. Classes will be taught in Spanish and Mandarin Chinese.

Principal Suzanne Velasquez-Sheehy will be showing off the renovated building on Oct. 22 at an open house for the community. Tours times are 5-5:30 p.m. and 6-6:30 p.m., with a presentation at 5:30 p.m.

The school has a new computer lab and has received a $30,000 library grant. Neighborhood residents are already enjoying the new playground equipment installed this summer.

Admission to LaSalle II will be determined by lottery, with 50% of the spaces reserved for neighborhood residents. See for an online application.
