February 1, 2017 Wednesday Letter

Dear Parents,

We are working hard to keep parents informed and in the loop regarding happenings at school. We know there will be glitches on occasion and appreciate your patience when we miss an update. Please know you can always call the school office for clarification if the information you need is not in the Wednesday Letter or on our website. That being said, there are quite a few announcements in this week’s letter. De LaSalle is one busy place!!

I would like to take the opportunity to thank the members of the Winterfest Committee and all of those who volunteered to make this such a wonderful day for everyone! By all accounts, a great time was had by everyone that attended. Congrats to the Rozzi Family, who won the Cow Pie Bingo. A financial report for the event will be provided next week. 

All the best,

Mrs. Riti and Mrs. Barrow
