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 Joshua Perez and Cristian Cantor..
Have a wonderful Summer and please pray for the Class of 2020 as they begin the next phase of their education journey.
Live Jesus in our hearts...FOREVER!

"I will miss The De La Salle School"
"I would like to thank the benefactors.
Without them we couldn't be here."
The De La Salle School has taught me a lot over the past four years. They showed me the importance of shaking people's hands and looking them in the eye when we talk to them. Thank you to all the teachers and those who have taught me and helped me learn and understand the topic in each subject we studied in. Thank you to Mr. Bencivenga who has helped me come out of my shell over the past four years and has kept me on the right track in school and in my personal life. Thank you to Mrs. Becker and Mr. Gault who were there for anything that we needed. They both are willing to help you in any way they can. I will miss The De La Salle School.
Thank you everyone,
When I think about my years at The De La Salle School, I would like to thank my parents who sent me to this school and to thank all my teachers. My teachers have made me the person I am today. Also I would like to thank the benefactors who inspire me to be a gentleman and help to run our school. Without them we couldn't be here. I would like to mention the teachers who have left that also impacted my life. Mrs. Boniello, Ms. Pagano, Mr. Lamberti, Mr. Vera and Brother Timothy. All the teachers have taken part in my life to make me the gentleman I am today.
Thank you all,
We invite you so support Joshua, Cristian and their classmates with a contribution to
The CARES Act, designed to help the nation recover from the pandemic, contains four important implications for charitable giving.
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.
Higher Deduction Limits - Individuals can deduct cash gifts to the extent of their entire adjusted gross income rather than the cap of 60%.
Increased Deduction Limits for Corporations - The contribution limit for cash donations has been increased to 25%.
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.
