November 14, 2018 Wednesday Letter

Dear Parents & Guardians,

We will not have a Wednesday Letter next week due to the holiday. On behalf of all the staff at De LaSalle Academy, I want to express how grateful we are for our school families and wish you a Happy Thanksgiving! Wherever the holiday takes you, we hope you have safe travels and enjoy time with friends and family.                                                                                                                                                                                                    

All the best,

Lori Riti

NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

2018 BOOK FAIR IS COMING!

The 2018 Book Fair will be on campus in the gym from December 10-14. Mrs. Haworth has graciously volunteered to coordinate the fair again this year and she is looking for volunteers to help with setting up, decorating, assisting shoppers, cashier checkout and packing up at the end. The fair is open to students in the mornings that week from

8:30 -11:00 and it will also be open before and after our holiday play the evening of December 13. This is a fun volunteering opportunity for parents with clearance who enjoy being on campus with the students.

 

DELASALLE ON NBC-2 NEWS!

Recently, Sean Martinelli from NBC-2 visited our campus to cover a story on the new “Hope Scholarship” offered by the State of Florida to students in public school who have documentation of being bullied at school. This new scholarship is one of three that are administered on behalf of the State of Florida through Step Up for Students. The scholarship just went into effect in October. Florida public school students may use one qualifying State scholarship at a participating private school. Thank you to Shayla and her mom for sharing their story with NBC-2 viewers! You can view the story at

PARENT COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION – PARENT FOCUS GROUP

The first Focus Group will take place on Thursday, December 6, 5:30-7:00 in the gym. Mrs. Vickie Gelardi will present on the topic of nutrition for your child. Those who have participated in this presentation in the past have reported that it is excellent and that it provided very helpful advice for helping children grow and succeed.

 

QUARTER AUCTION

The De LaSalle Players Performing Arts Club will hold its annual Quarter Auction Fundraiser on Saturday, November 17 at 12:30 in the gym. This is a super fun, fast-paced auction where you can turn those quarters (and dollars) into great winnings. Please come, participate and help our Performing Arts Club.

 

MORE FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITIES

 

LOCAL LINX COUPON BOOKS ARE HERE!

This annual PCA fundraiser is perfect because those who buy the coupon book make back their $20 investment by using the wide range of coupons for dining and entertainment in SW Florida, including over $150 in free offers! We are asking each family to sell at least one coupon book, but of course we will be thrilled if you request more books from Mr. Robinson at jrobinson@delasallefm.org.

 

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION

This is a year-long fundraiser that is super easy! Each General Mills product with the Box Top symbol is worth 10 cents and the money adds up quickly when so many families participate. Please cut and attach your Box Tops to the enclosed sheet and turn it in to the school office.

If you shop on Amazon, then consider shopping instead on AmazonSmile whenever possible. When you log onto www.smile.amazon.com and select De LaSalle Academy of Fort Myers as your charity of choice, De LaSalle receives a .5% of the purchase price for eligible items.
