Jeffrey Lemus

Greetings from Mr. Gault

I hope that your summer is proving enjoyable with family and friends.

As I mentioned, I have turned 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.   This week we would like to introduce you to Jeffrey Lemus.
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!

"I don't know where I would be"
My experience at The De La Salle School was a great experience. I enjoyed learning here because of the teachers. They taught us many interesting things. I enjoyed the trips and the fun times we had. I enjoyed the farm trip in 5th grade the best. I remember waking up in the early morning and getting excited to get working.
The De La Salle School has helped me connect more to God and understand how to live my life as Christian. I appreciate and thank all the teachers for preparing me to go to high school. I will be going to Kellenberg Memorial High School.
I like to think of The De La Salle School as my home away from home. I am grateful for the opportunities it has provided to me and my peers. It has provided a chance to learn, to be safe, and a chance to go to a great high school.  I am really thankful for attending The De La Salle School and I would like to thank all the teachers. I do not know where I would be if it was not for this school.  I will miss my school and will always remember what an amazing time I had at The De La Salle School.

Thank you everyone at The De La Salle School,
Jeffrey Lemus
We invite you so support Jeffrey 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.
