The administration, faculty and staff of The De La Salle School completed Catholic Schools Week by joining with our colleagues from similar Lasallian schools in Providence, RI, Philadelphia, PA, and Washington, DC for a two-day conference in Tinton Falls, NJ. Our schools are referred to in the Lasallian world as San Miguel schools. We assembled for times of prayer, heard presentations from very distinguished Lasallian presenters, shared best practices with one another and were reminded of some of the key teachings of St. John Baptist De La Salle as it related to the needs of our students attending our schools today. We gathered as a community of Lasallians who are committed to the education of the young in the tradition of Saint John Baptist de La Salle. In the 300 years since the death of Saint La Salle the charism and mission of all Lasallians has continued to be one of unwavering commitment to all youth, particularly those who may face some economic hardships. The theme of this year's conference was "Great Things Are Possible." It was an amazing educational and spiritual experience for all engaged here at The De La Salle School.
Mid-term examinations are completed, second quarter grades and report cards have been distributed, and Parent/Teacher conferences realized a ninety-nine percent family participation. The first semester of the 2019-2020 academic year is history, and the student body can look back at their accomplishments and achievements with tremendous pride. Sixty percent of the student population secured a position on the schools Honor Roll. The eighth-grade class were true leaders with seventy percent achieving a position on the Honor Roll. All of our eighth-grade students were accepted into a Catholic high school of their choice. These young men have worked very hard in order to achieve their goals and are extremely proud of their accomplishments. As we venture forward into the new semester, our De La Salle gentlemen have articulated their hopes and dreams as they set new goals for the next phase of their education.
We are now recruiting our next class, our nineteenth. If you know a young man, currently in the fourth grade, who could benefit from a Catholic school education and whose family thought they could never afford such an option please share our story and encourage them to contact the school for further information and or an application.
