Principal's Perspective  |  November 3, 2022

Dear Parents & Guardians,

This year feels different! At least different from the past couple of years. At least for me. I am inspired by the daily buzz of academic preparation in our classrooms, the reminders of faith, service, and community through Lasallian Youth and other extracurricular activities, and the continual efforts to foster respect in everything we do. It is reassuring that we are doing all of this without the relentless urgency of the pandemic.


The City of D under the direction of Mr. Dowling organized a Halloween Blood Drive as part of our larger Lasallian commitment to giving back to our community.

First-Ever Dancing with D on November 19

Some of you may have heard that the Advancement Team has been working with a group of students to host our first ever dance-a-thon fundraiser. Funds will be raised throughout the entire month of November, but the "main event" of this campaign will take place as a dance, on the evening of Saturday, November 19th.

Ms. Lindsey Naughton is in search of parent volunteers. If you are able, there are three (3) shifts available. View your options and sign up here.

The night promises to be a great chance to interact with our students in a fun and casual setting, all while raising funds for our school.
