October 17, 2018 Wednesday Letter

Dear Parents & Guardians,

It’s Spirit Week at De LaSalle!!  Kids enjoyed PJ Day on Tuesday and they’re looking forward to wearing their favorite sports, video game or TV show apparel on Wednesday and favorite band, musical or artist t-shirts on Thursday.  Friday is the big day when kids have the option to wear Spirit Shirts from prior years and/or deck themselves out in blue and yellow, our school colors. Accessories are welcome! This year’s Spirit Shirt will not be ready on time for Friday’s Pep Rally, unfortunately, but we will have another Spirit Day as soon as they arrive.  

De LaSalle Academy seniors are fundraising for their class trip and invite the entire community to attend Fun Night at Zoomers in Fort Myers, 5:00-8:00 PM on Friday, November 2. The cost is $10 and includes unlimited rides, go karts and mini golf. All De LaSalle families and friends are invited and just need to mention “De LaSalle Academy” when purchasing their ticket. Thanks to everyone for spreading the word!

All the best,

Lori Riti

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.
