November 28, 2018 Wednesday Letter

Dear Parents & Guardians,

We are delighted to announce the arrival of Riley Ann Barrow!  She made her debut a little early, but Riley and Mrs. Barrow are home and doing great! On behalf of all the students and staff at De LaSalle, we congratulate the Barrow Family on their wonderful news ?.  Mrs. Barrow will be on family leave for several months.

We are also happy to welcome Ms. Lauren Pflieger to De LaSalle this week. Ms. Pflieger is taking over Dr. Moore’s classes. You can reach her at lpflieger@delasallefm.org.

Remember that our 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 provided very helpful advice for helping children grow and succeed.

As we approach the holiday season, you will find quite a few announcements regarding our traditional festivities. We welcome your support and participation!

All the best,

Lori Riti

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. Please contact Mrs. Haworth or the school office if you can volunteer.

 

7TH ANNUAL GINGERBREAD HOUSE PROJECT

A De LaSalle tradition continues! Each year, we turn the gym into a yummy, sweet, gingerbread house workshop for the entire student body. We would be very grateful for donations of “building supplies” for our houses. Please see the enclosed flyer for more information.

 

TRANSITION SURVEY

Parents of middle and high school students are invited to respond to the enclosed survey. We are interested in getting your input on topics to include in our next Transition Workshop for parents. We also welcome your feedback on the best dates to schedule the event.

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.
