December Recap

La Salle Academy has had a successful and festive month of December! Scroll down to see what we’ve been up to…

On the 3rd we participated in #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving powered by social media and digital outreach. It brought our La Salle Academy community together to raise nearly $7,000. These donations will be used to provide our students with field trips and assembles that enrich their education.

Students and their families celebrated the Advent season with their sponsors at our Annual Lasallian Student Sponsorship Dinner. Thank you to all the benefactors in that category who provide our students with the gift of a Lasallian Catholic college-preparatory education. Click here to view more photos from the event.

A group of our students visited the New York Stock Exchange and received an inside look at the trading floor from La Salle Academy alumnus, Michael Capolino ’91.

 A private reception in the Joseph F. D’Angelo ’48 Literacy Center co-hosted by my friend, Joan MacNaughton, welcomed many guests to La Salle for their first visit to our school. Click here to view more photos from the event.

Every year prior to Christmas, the Parents Association collects toys for children in need. Last week, parents, students and alumni wrapped the gifts which will be donated to DeWitt Head Start.

On Friday, December 20th we celebrated our annual Christmas Liturgy and assembly. Young men in chorus and band performed Christmas songs and students in the drama club performed a skit. We also heard from the NYPD Band and a special guest pianist, Katya Grineva, who will be playing at Carnegie Hall on December 27th.

I am grateful for your association with us in fulfilling the mission of La Salle Academy. I wish you, and those special to you, a joyous Christmas and a blessed 2020!
