Pelham Examiner

Delia Lavallee, Staff Reporter

Hi! My name is Delia Lavallee.  I am so excited to be a part of this. I will make sure to be very active on the Pelham Examiner. I have done the Hutchinson School newspaper for two years. I will be a seventh grader at Pelham Middle School. In my free time, I like to read, write and hang out with family and friends. I can't wait to start writing stories!
