Greetings from Mr. Gault

Happy Independence Day!  I hope you and your loved ones had an opportunity to enjoy the holiday weekend.
As I mentioned, over the next few editions of our newsletter, I will turn the column over to our recent graduates from the Class of 2020.  Before they graduated, they wrote an essay about their time spent at The De La Salle School.  I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did.
Have a wonderful Summer and please pray for the Class of 2020 as they begin the next phase of their educational journey.
Live Jesus in our hearts...FOREVER!

"None of the teachers quit on me"
I went to public school from kindergarten to fourth grade and I have never experienced what I have at The De La Salle School in the public school.  At The De La Salle school we are like a family.  All the teachers chase you down to do your homework because they want you to pass. When I was in public school, if I didn't do my homework the teacher wouldn't chase me down to do it.  They would just ask me why I didn't do it. At The De La Salle School all the teachers help out each student even if they become very troublesome. I would like to thank the teachers from all the years because I know that it must have been difficult to teach me because I was the type of student who just wanted school to finish and do nothing.  None of the teachers quit on me and now I can attend my graduation and will go to Kellenberg next year.

Thank you everyone at The De La Salle School,
Jan-Marco Duron
We invite you so support Jan-Marco and his classmates with a contribution to

Tax Law Changes Affecting Charitable Gifts
The CARES Act, designed to help the nation recover from the pandemic, contains four important implications for charitable giving.

  1. New Charitable Donation Deduction for Non-Itemizers - Taxpayers taking the standard deduction can now claim up to $300 in cash donations as a charitable deduction.
  2. Higher Deduction Limits - Individuals can deduct cash gifts to the extent of their entire adjusted gross income rather than the cap of 60%.
  3. Increased Deduction Limits for Corporations - The contribution limit for cash donations has been increased to 25%.
  4. Required Minimum Distribution - For 2020, there is no mandatory distribution from retirement accounts allowing retirees to recover losses.  Once they do recover, retirement funds provide a tax-wise option for charitable giving.
Please feel free to share The Dispatch
 with family & friends.
