Experiential Learning

Greetings from Mr. Gault

At the beginning of this month, Mr. Donodeo our Health and Physical Education Teacher joined forces with Mrs. Burns our Science Teacher to educate our young men on the complexities of the circulatory system. Going from station to station set up in the gym, students learned how oxygen feeds the lungs and cleanses our blood to give us energy. These two creative teachers again joined forces later in the week to teach students how to calculate speed. While again setting up in our gym, students walked, ran, hopped and participated in other activities calculating how quickly they were able to accomplish the task. Experiential learning at its best here at The De La Salle School!
This week marks a one year milestone for The De La Salle School. Along with thousands of other educational institutions we had to plan alternative learning modes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. When the Governor first ordered schools closed back on 13 March 2020, we all thought that it was a cautionary move and that we would be back to our regular routine within a couple of weeks. That couple of weeks stretched into a full year that students were not able to attend class full time or were forced to have lessons taught to them virtually. Thanks to many generous benefactors we had the technology in place to teach remotely successfully finishing the 2019-2020 school year. As the 2020-2021 school year began we were able to bring students back to the building following a hybrid schedule.
This week we welcomed back several young men who have not physically been in class since March of 2020. It was wonderful to see them in person and not view them through a computer screen. We are all anxious to return to our regular school routine. On Monday, 22 March we will welcome all students back to the building full time and will no longer follow a hybrid model. We ask for your continued prayers for everyone's health and safety as The De La Salle School enters this next phase of providing a quality Catholic Education in the Lasallian tradition. We would like to thank Our Holy Redeemer Parish for the use of additional space, that allows us to follow the CDC protocols and social distancing guidelines.

Prayerfully in Saint LaSalle,
William L. Gault
