Office of the Principal
It is difficult to believe, but we are only two weeks from the end of our fall semester and the upcoming Christmas holidays!

There are several upcoming December events to take note of.

Our band will perform its annual Winter Concert this Wednesday, December 9th, at 6:30 pm in our cafeteria. All our welcome and encouraged to attend this performance. Mr. Duncan Pray, our band director, will lead the band through its performance.

Final Grade Reminders and Return to School
Please be reminded that final grades are not due from teachers until the first week of January. Students return to school for a full day of school on Tuesday, January 5th.
Please be reminded that personal meetings with faculty and administration need to be arranged by appointment. No administrator or faculty member is mandated to take a meeting from a parent or guardian that has not been pre-arranged. Thank you for your cooperation with this policy.
Boys’ and girls’ soccer teams, the wrestling team, and the boys’ and girls’ basketball teams have begun their seasons and are representing De La Salle quite well! Please come out and support the Cavs as they take to the field and the floor!
As always, we thank you for entrusting your children to us, and we look forward to a blessed and peaceful Christmas holiday. Take care, and may God bless you and yours.
Paul Kelly, ‘83
