All DeLaSalle parents are invited to actively participate in the DeLaSalle Parent Association, which meets formally on the second Monday of every month throughout the school year and organizes several events to better connect parents with other parents for the benefit of the school and all students.   By virtue of your enrollment at DeLaSalle, you are already a member of the Association, and we welcome your involvement and help.

The first meeting of the year is Monday, September 12, from 6:30-8:00 pm, in Room D-104, the new Islander Commons space between the two entries.  A special invitation is extended to all parents who are new to DeLaSalle to join us on the 12th.  After introductions and a robust “DLS Trivia Contest,” (with valuable prizes awarded), the co-chairs will share the calendar of 2016-17 meetings, speakers and activities and field suggestions for topics important to parents.  More information will be available on the Parents-in-Prayer series as well.  The treats will be good.  The conversation will be better.  Questions are anticipated.  New ideas are always welcome.  We hope to see you on Monday night!

The Association sponsors a number of activities each year that benefit the school.  The first such activity occurs on Friday, September 23rd, when the Association will once again provide s’mores at the annual Homecoming Bonfire at De.  The Parent Association has managed this project since 2002 – and the Student Council (which plans and manages Homecoming Week) enthusiastically extends the invitation to the Parent Association to help once again.  We will share more details about “S’mores Mania” and have a sign-up list available when the Association meets on Monday night.

Parent Association co-chairs for 2016-17 are Luann Mishler, parent of Sam `18 and Emma `19, and Jackie Schluter-Johnson, parent of Otto `17 and Gabby `19.  The staff liaison is Mike O’Keefe, who also happens to be the parent of three De alums.  If you have any questions about the meeting on the 12th or “S’mores Mania” event on the 23rd, please contact Mike at mike.okeefe@delasalle.com.
