January 30, 2018 Wednesday Letter

Dear Parents,

And just like that, it’s the end of January! The second half of the school year is well under way and we are as busy as ever. Please remember to stay connected to school events and on top of your child’s progress via Edsby. This tool is so helpful!

On behalf of the entire De LaSalle family, I want to congratulate the Parent Community Association for raising $7,857 at the Family Fun Fest!! The funds will be used as planned for improving our campus accessibility, signage, and school image. This was an outstanding example of parent engagement that makes our school a better place to be! Well done!

All the best,
Lori Riti
