Thank yous, Rice Collection, Brother Andrejko visit, and Dads' Club Meeting

September 10, 2021

Dear Pilot Family,                                   

We would like to thank Bishop Fisher for leading us in our All School Mass this morning that was held in our stadium! Special thanks to the CBA, Dads Club and our athletes for the setting up and take down to ensure our festive celebration. This weekend the stadium will be utilized by St. Lawrence’s football teams, our DeLaSalle soccer teams, and the Eastside Eagles. On Saturday, a reception will be held in the school for our Hall of Fame, a busy time at DeLaSalle.

Many thanks to our teachers and the many parents who attended Back to School Night! A great evening simply to put faces on a name and to receive some insight concerning your son’s class schedule.

Beginning Monday, in conjunction with our sports teams playing Brother Rice, Campus Ministry will have our annual Rice collection for the soup kitchens and food banks. Boxes will be available across from the chapel for the collection of rice. In the past, we have been able to donate over 6,000 lbs of Rice! Your generosity and support are greatly appreciated!

Next week, Brother Michael Andrejko, FSC  will be visiting the Senior Theology classes to discuss vocations to the Christian Brothers! Please discuss this with your son, your encouragement gives support to serve the Church as a Religious Brother.

Our 9th and 10th graders have had their retreats at St. Faustina Parish, many thanks to Mr. John Berlin, Fr. Bogdan, and our faculty for coordinating the day! Juniors and Seniors will have the opportunity to attend Kairos in November. Please encourage your son to take part in this spiritual retreat.

A full listing of our Athletics schedule can be found HERE!  Our Sports teams are underway. We wish all of our athletes and coaches the best of luck in their season. Please consider attending and/or volunteering at our games; the Pilot family shows great sportsmanship and spirit! As you are probably aware, our teams are all doing well and add to a great spirit at the Collegiate.

Elite Driving School will again offer segment 1 and segment 2 at DeLaSalle, more information in next week’s note, as we gather information.

The Dads' Club will meet on Monday, September 27 at 7 pm in the cafeteria! Calling all Dads!! Please consider joining this service group!

A calendar note, there is a Faculty Meeting scheduled for Thursday, September 23! Students will be dismissed at 1:15 pm, teachers will meet until 2:45 pm!

Thursday, September 30 is our Annual Favorite Teacher breakfast; our current freshmen will invite their teachers from elementary or middle school 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.

Live Jesus In Our Hearts!
