October 25, 2017 Wednesday Letter

Dear Parents & Guardians,

This week, your child’s report card for the first quarter is enclosed. Teachers and therapists are eager to meet with you during conferences this Thursday and Friday to provide additional information about your child’s progress and goals for the upcoming term, and to address any question or concerns you may have. Please keep in mind that conferences are 30 minutes in length. If additional time is needed, teachers will be happy to schedule another conference. Conferences at De LaSalle are required. Please inform administration if you cannot attend at your scheduled time, so we can arrange for a different time. Students who are new to De LaSalle this year are also receiving a copy of the 2017-18 Student Support Plan, which will be discussed at the conference.

One of the many things that sets De LaSalle apart from other schools is YOU, our parent partners! We are grateful for the time you spend supporting your child’s efforts at school and for your interest in community happenings at De LaSalle. You make a difference in the lives of every student at our school.

With gratitude,

Lori Riti
