February 7, 2018 Wednesday Letter

Dear Parents,

Last Friday, the students enjoyed a fabulous Health Fair Day at De LaSalle. We are grateful to the many parent volunteers, community presenters, staff members, and organizer Bonnie Ross for making this a fun and informative day for our students. Students created their own smoothie recipes at the Fair and they asked us to share the recipes with you this week. Part of staying healthy is staying safe. Please take time to read the helpful tip sheets for parents and students on internet safety that are included in this week’s Wednesday Envelope.

Parents have been asking about Summer Camp at De LaSalle and we are thrilled to announce that Mr. Stoff and Mr. Huebler will be our Camp Directors again this year! Camp will run from June 4-29, with two 2-week sessions. More information will be sent home in the spring.

Our annual Talent Show, Spaghetti Dinner and Auction are coming soon! Please join us on March 15. We need your help with auction items to make this event a success. Please help us raise funds for tuition assistance so we can keep a De LaSalle education affordable for all our families. Please see the enclosed flyer for more information.

All the best,
Lori Riti
