Passing of Brother Robert Carnaghi, Winter sports, and Prom-Graduation Dates set

March 4, 2021

Dear Pilot Families, 


As you may have heard by now, Brother Bob Carnaghi, FSC passed away on Tuesday night. Brother was 90 years young and was not only the former President of DeLaSalle, but a missionary, teacher, administrator, and Assistant Provincial. Brother was a true son of St. LaSalle who put service to all above all else. I am sure that the Lord welcomed him into eternal life with open arms. Funeral info pending.

Winter Sports continues! Congratulations to all of our teams who are doing so well! For a calendar of events:

Due to the State guidelines, we are only allowed to have parents attend the events, if and when this policy changes we will let you know. Schedules have been updated, with the rescheduling of different sporting events.

Seniors - Sunday, May 16  is the scheduled date for the Senior Prom.  The Prom will be held at Zuccaro’s Banquets & Catering. Address: 46601 Gratiot Avenue, Chesterfield, MI 48051. The tickets will go on sale starting Monday, April 19-Friday April 30 for $100 a couple. Tickets will not be available after April 30 because a count has to be turned into the hall. After April 30, no refunds will be issued. Tickets can be purchased at the Business Office or through your Facts Account. Doors will open at 4:00 p.m.  A family-style dinner will be served promptly at 5:00 p.m.. and the dance will end at 8:00 p.m. If you have any further questions please contact Mrs. Michol. 

The Raffle Drive continues, we thank you for your generosity and support to DeLaSalle. If you need more tickets or information please call the Advancement Office, 586-541-6221, the drawing is March 16.

If you have not yet completed and signed your son’s course request form for the 2021-2022 school year, it needs to be returned to school by Monday, March 8. Additionally, if your son is requesting an AP course that form also needs to be completed and returned by March 8 if you have not already done so.

As the weather begins to get warmer, we will be adjusting our dress code to adjust back to our regular dress code, with the DLS Polo being required to be worn daily. March 22 which is the beginning of the 4th quarter will be the startup date back to our regular school dress code. As of March 22, no hoodies or sweatshirts will be allowed to be worn in class. All jackets, sweatshirts and hoodies will be kept in the boys lockers.

A reminder that if a junior or senior arrives after 8:00 am, the rear doors of the school will be locked, and they will need to enter through the front of the building. This is for security purposes, please take note.

These first few weeks of Lent have been a challenge for all, with either Covid issues, family or friends passing away, and the winter weather. Let us pray that as this Lent challenges us in many ways, that we may carry our cross as humbly as our Lord!
