October 12, 2016 Wednesday Letter

Dear Parents,

As you know, De LaSalle Academy’s Parent Community Association is hosting its annual Casino Night Fundraiser on Saturday, October 22 at 6:30 PM.  This is a super fun event with proceeds directly supporting our students through the purchase of hands on science equipment. In order for the event to be a success, we need your help. Please spread the word to friends and family who would enjoy a night of fun, while supporting the school. We also need more sponsors and your help would be very much appreciated in that area as well. The event is also an opportunity to earn volunteer hours. Help is needed at 3:00 on October 21 for set up, then on the day of the event at 5:00 we need servers and cashiers, plus a cleanup crew at 9:00. Please contact Bonnie Ross regarding volunteering, bross@delasallefm.org .

Enclosed with this week’s Wednesday Envelope is your appointment form for 1st Quarter Parent-Teacher Conferences. Please check the appointment time and return the BOTTOM portion of the form to confirm that you can attend at the scheduled time. Please remember that conferences are required as a condition of attendance at De LaSalle and we truly value this time to discuss your child’s progress and goals.

Have a great week,

Mrs. Riti and Mrs. Barrow
