8-29-18 Wednesday Letter

Dear Parents & Guardians,

Our Parent Community Association (PCA) leadership team is enclosing a letter to parents and guardians regarding our next PCA meeting on September 25 at 6:30 PM in the gym. We welcome your topic suggestions and questions! Thank you to PCA officers Amy Blankenship, Brenda Cope, Cheryl Davidson, Heather Dutescu, and Kelly Leidig for helping us strengthen our community connection!

The PCA has a solid track record for funding campus projects and providing a wonderful level of support for the school. The first of these events is Cow Pie Bingo at our Family FunFest on September 22. This simple event is so popular and an easy way to raise money, so please sell your tickets and turn in the proceeds and stubs by September 17. Then come out to the FunFest to see the cow in action and have a great afternoon of other activities with our school community! 😊

All the best,

Lori Riti

NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

DATE CHANGE — MEETING FOR SENIORS & THEIR PARENTS / GUARDIANS

A required meeting will be held on September 6 at 6:30 PM in the gym (previously scheduled on Sept. 4). We will be providing seniors with important information regarding senior privileges, the senior trip, graduation, senior portraits, transition, and other general information.

 

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY

As part of our continuing effort to improve the safety protocols on our campus, we are looking for volunteers who can sew new vision panel covers for our classroom doors that open to the outside walkway. These are small glass panels that must be covered during a school lockdown. They are color coded to alert law enforcement personnel to the status of those inside the room. The school will provide the simple design and all the materials. We just need volunteers who can sew with access to a sewing machine. Please contact Mrs. Riti at Lriti@delasallefm.org if you can help.

 

FAMILY FUN FEST!!!

Please join us on Saturday, September 22 from 11:00-3:00 for this wonderful opportunity to connect with other De LaSalle families, build community, and have a blast! The Parent Community Association Family Fun Fest Committee has an awesome day planned with inflatable attractions, games and contests, face painting, music, and free food and drinks. But, the highlight of the day might just be the Cow Pie Bingo extravaganza! The cost for the event is only $2.00 per person, so bring the whole family! PLEASE TURN IN YOUR RSVP SO THE EVENT COMMITTEE CAN FINALIZE PLANS 😊.

 

COW PIE BINGO TICKETS – Ticket $$ is due on SEPTEMBER 17

This is one of the best fundraising traditions at De LaSalle! Who doesn’t love Cow Pie Bingo? Earlier this month, we sent an informational flyer and 20 tickets for you to sell at $5 each. Please help the Parent Community Association reach its fundraising goals by selling your tickets. The cow will provide us with a winner at the Family Fun Fest on September 22. Please return all stubs, funds, (and unsold tickets ☹) to school by September 17.
