Goodbye Note from Tessa

By Tessa D'Ippolito, Publisher June 14, 2024

I am sad to say that this Thursday (6/20/24) will be my last newsletter as your editor. I will miss the Macaroni KID world – my wonderful local sponsors who have supported Macaroni KID, and all of you!

Macaroni KID has blessed my family with so many wonderful opportunities and core memories. I will be forever grateful for the gifts that it brought to our lives. But great news, Barbara Evangelista is back as your acting publisher!  

I hope that you will continue to read and support Macaroni KID, share it with your friends, and tell your favorite local businesses about us. Our Macaroni KID editions are supported 100% by local businesses, and we wouldn’t be here without them.  If you would like to chat about content or sharing your business with readers, please email her at

Thank you so much for reading and supporting Macaroni KID. I will miss you but am excited to spend the next few months focused on taking care of my family, as well as myself. If you would like to connect with me, please send me an email, reach out on LinkedIn or send me a DM on Instagram.  

All the best,
