Greetings from Mr. Gault

Your donation keeps on giving!  Graduation does not end our ministry to the students of The De La Salle School.  We continue to offer educational support to all of our graduates through our Graduate Support Program with some financial assistance to those attending Catholic high schools.  We know our efforts are successful.  Our alumni have a 100% high school graduation rate and over 20 of our alumni currently attending high school have achieved a position on their school's honor roll.  Graduates of The De La Salle School currently attend the following high schools: Chaminade High School, Kellenberg Memorial High School, Holy Trinity Diocesan High School, Regis High School, Saint Anthony's High School and Saint Mary's High School.  Some of the students have enrolled in their district high schools: Freeport, Hempstead, Roosevelt and Uniondale.
All of the alumni are invited back for Study Hall on Tuesday evening from 5-8 PM, under the guidance of our Graduate Support Director, Mr. Kevin Rall.  Students are provided with an opportunity for mentoring, tutoring and group study.  Like all good Lasallians socialization is an important component of the program, so we make sure to provide them with a light supper and an opportunity for some recreation as well.
A new program instituted last year for our high school sophomores and juniors is the SAT prep course given by the Americana Student Center.  This 10-week course as well as the SAT test is fully funded by The De La Salle School with no cost to the students' families.  This is a program that we are very excited about as it opens up all kinds of opportunities and endless possibilities to the young men who are part of our De La Salle family. 
Colleges and Universities are now in the process of mailing out their acceptance letters to high school seniors.  Please keep in your prayers alumni from The De La Salle School who have applied to: Hofstra University, John Jay College, Manhattan College, Molloy College, New York Institute of Technology, Siena College, St. John's University, Steven's Institute of Technology and the University of Connecticut.

Our prayerful best wishes to all of you this Lenten season!

Prayerfully yours in the Spirit of Saint La Salle,
