Welcome Back & Supply List - 6th Grade

  • Dear 6th Grade Parents/Guardians:

    We are so excited that you are on Team Infinity with us this coming school year! We are looking forward to working with all of you to make this first year of middle school a great experience.  


    We are providing each student with basic school supplies this year, which includes: binder, folders, pencils, colored pencils, pencil pouches, drawstring ADL Bags, and planners. We will have shared supplies available in the classrooms such as markers, glue, highlighters, headphones, and basic calculators.



    We hope that you enjoy your last few days of summer vacation.  If you have any questions, concerns, or things you would like us to know before the start of the school year,  please feel free to reach out through the emails listed below.


    See you soon!

  • My name is Beth Kinney, and I am the humanities teacher on Team Infinity.  Humanities incorporates language arts and social studies.  Our social studies focus for this year is world geography.  I live in Essex with my husband, Alan, three children, Anna, John, and Brandon, and our dog, Scout.  I spend most of my time outside of school supporting my children in their various sporting activities, and I also enjoy reading, crafts, and puzzles.

    My name is Danielle Petralia and I am looking forward to being your math and science teacher this year on Team Infinity. I live in Richmond with my husband, Paul, two daughters, Emma and Julia and our yellow lab, Tucker. In my free time, I love to explore the outdoors with family, friends. Hiking, kayaking, snowshoeing and swimming are some of my favorite activities. I also enjoy photography and hope to start a photography club at ADL. 

    My name is Lindsey Orr, and I am the 6th grade Learning Specialist at ADL. This is my 8th year teaching, and my 3rd year at ADL. I support all students in and out of the general education classroom, and I love watching students succeed!

I also enjoy cooking and spending time outside.
