Dear Pilot Family,
Week 1 is coming to a completion, and I hope that your son is enjoying his experience at De La Salle!
Just a reminder that if you are calling your son out of school for an appointment, we page students at the beginning or the end of the period so that we do not interrupt the class; please plan accordingly.
Parking passes should be hanging from your son’s rearview mirror. We will be placing stickers on cars without a pass beginning next week. If your son wishes to purchase a parking pass, please have him come to the main office. Please remind your son about driving slowly and carefully in the parking lot; we have had a few minor fender benders early in the school year.
A full listing of our Athletics schedule can be found at: www.https://delasallecollegiate.bigteams.com/ Our sports teams are under way. We wish all of our athletes and coaches the best in their seasons. Please consider attending and/or volunteering at our games; the Pilot family shows great sportsmanship and spirit!
A reminder that our First All School Mass is September 10, at 9:30 am, at the St. John Baptiste De La Salle Field. Boys will need to be in their liturgy dress shirts with the school tie. Our regular weekly morning Wednesday masses at 7:05 am in the school chapel will begin on September 8! Fr. Gambala from St. Malachy’s is our usual celebrant.
On Wednesday, September 1, the entire 9th-grade class will attend a retreat at St. Faustina’s. The 10th-grade class will attend a retreat on September 8, also at St. Faustina’s. The cost is $10 for both the freshmen and sophomores and will be added to your FACTS tuition account to cover lunch that day. The boys are to be in full school dress code.
Wednesday, September 8, from 6:00-8:00 pm is our Back to School Night. Parents can walk through their son’s schedule, ask teachers questions, and get acquainted with the school. Class periods are 10 minutes each, and parents will run through their son’s Day 1 schedule. Check your Infinite Campus account for your son’s schedule. More detailed information will be coming next week, or if you have specific questions, contact Mr. Dean at firstname.lastname@example.org or 586-541-6208.
Thursday, September 30 is our Annual Favorite Teacher breakfast; teachers will be invited by the current freshmen to attend. More information is forthcoming.
Senior parents….the college application process has begun! Make an appointment to see your counselor ASAP. Underclassmen, it is a good practice to also stop by the counseling office to touch base.
A reminder that there is No School next Friday, September 3, and Monday, September 6, due to the Labor Day Holiday! May you have a Blessed and rest-filled weekend.
Please read the rest of the Pilot Pride Newsletter. It is filled with valuable information with details!
Live Jesus In Our Hearts!
