November 2, 2016 Wednesday Letter

Dear Parents,


It has been a great week at De LaSalle! It’s nice to take a short break from working so hard on our studies to enjoy some seasonal fun. Check out our Facebook page for some awesome pics from our Halloween festivities. Please remember that while we pulled out all the stops with candy and treats on Monday, we ask that students keep candy at home following the holiday. We appreciate your help with this tempting prospect!


Enclosed with today’s Wednesday Envelope is a flyer for a fabulous event organized by the De LaSalle Academy Fund Development Committee. On December 3, we are proud to present “Great Songs for a Great Cause,” featuring local talent Mark Sanders, with cameo performances by several of the De LaSalle staff members, right here on our own stage. The evening of entertainment will include a delicious buffet dinner created by our own board member and restauranteur, Jerry Snyderman plus a cash bar. Dinner is at 6:00 PM and the show begins at 8:00. Tickets are $75 per person. To reserve seats, or for more information, contact James Robinson at 239-245-8212 or Please spread the word about this event to anyone who may be interested and if you or someone you know purchases tickets and mentions your child’s name, your child will receive a NUT Day Pass from Mr. Robinson.


Have a great week,

Mrs. Riti and Mrs. Barrow
