Dear Parents & Guardians,

The De LaSalle Board of Directors and Fund Development Committee is planning its annual gala fundraiser, Beacon of Hope, for April 7, 2019. This event targets the greater Southwest Florida community in an effort to grow support for the school. Revenue from the event directly supports De LaSalle’s vitally important tuition assistance program. The success of the event allows De LaSalle to redirect budgeted funds to areas that benefit all De LaSalle students. We don’t necessarily expect De LaSalle families to participate in the event, as the tickets and sponsorships are somewhat pricey. But we do want to share the information with you for other reasons. First, if you are interested in sponsoring or attending the event, you now have the information you will need. Second, if you know of a relative, friend, business or child service provider who may be interested in supporting the event, please pass the information along. Finally, we want to keep you in the loop with all events and efforts that are important to the school. We are grateful to the Board and members of the Fund Development Committee for their hard work and dedication to this truly worthy cause!        

Because we are thankful to be recipients of the community’s support, we want to instill in the children the importance of giving back, even in small ways. Beginning now through November 30, De LaSalle’s Student Government is sponsoring a donation drive to benefit the Peace River Wildlife Center. Any donations, small or large, will gratefully be accepted. Please see the enclosed flyer for the Center’s wish list.                                                                                                                                                                                                       

All the best and Happy Halloween!

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.
