Your friendly empathetic ear has been a comfort and strength to me personally and to our family during the difficult times we faced this past year.  Love, The Drucker and Solano Family:)💕☀️💐🙌🏾

Ms. Conroy

It is my pleasure to acknowledge the talent and expertise through your active participation in successful running of LaSalle Academy school. You have made a difference through your dedication and continued support of our students. Your ideas, input, and enthusiasm were most appreciated in helping us make valuable improvements to the school as a whole. I met you when my son was in 10th grade when you came back as the principal of LaSalle, you nicely explained to Abiola his graduation requirements and how to go about his credits. He was in a class above his grade at the time but after your explanation, you made him feel comfortable to continue in the school I can’t thank you enough. I am so proud of Abiola for the education he has received at LaSalle Academy today and knowing well that his future will be great 👍 Thank you again.

I appreciate the strong, supportive, stable and safe return you implemented for our son’s return to school after his major surgery. You made sure to check in with us to make sure you could provide for all his needs. We are grateful for all your help, attention and compassion.

Love, The Drucker and Solano Family🙌🏾💗🤩

Hi, Ms. Mo! Thank you for guiding me all throughout my 4 years of high school. Under your guidance I was able to mature and become the person I am today. You pushed me to do my best! You made many sacrifices and you do them happily and with a big smile. You stayed after school to help me when I struggle. We had many wonderful conversations together where you gave me tons of advice. You fully devote yourself to your students, the Lasallian community, and The Asian American Club. Thanks to you, I was able to have many connections and good memories at La Salle and even afterschool in the Asian American Club. You made sure that students like myself felt loved and cared for. Salamat po Ms. Mo!

I appreciate you very much for teaching my son our faith.

Thank you for being a great teacher. You always go above and beyond. When you teach a subject there is never any uncertainty in the way you teach it. You always nail it. Thank you for all your help.

He’s funny, he’s near our age group and from the same kind of ethnic background so he understands us. He’s open to discussing any topics and down-to-earth about it, meaning he’s understanding. Also whenever we make a mistake he lets us off the hook, of course while reminding us to do better. The way he teaches is great, not directly reading off the board, and speaking to us with an understanding of knowledge he fully grasps. It’s honestly an overall fun time when he teaches, I’m not stressed, bored, tired, instead I’m actually excited. Thank you Mr.Peña!

Mr. Perez

Thank you for teaching our son, Landon, the gift of understanding and speaking of another language. Your Hard work and Dedication are much appreciated.

Thank you for being so kind and going above and beyond to help the young men that attend your classes. You are very considerate, understanding and patient.

Hello Ms. Ritziu! Math is a subject that I struggle with. However, despite COVID, you were able to help me with all my questions and difficulties in math. I am glad that I am able to have you as a homeroom teacher as well. Thanks to your uplifting and positive outlook, each morning, before class starts, is always a good morning!

Thank you, Mariano truly enjoyed math class. It’s a subject that he has a good grasp on so it can be very easy for him to lose interest, when the coursework seems to “simple”. And I am happy to say you made it engaging for him to continue with the love of math. Again, I say Thank You!

Mrs. Romanosky

Thank you for not only preparing my son for academics but also for life. You have boosted up his confidence and made him a better human being.

Thank you for teaching us and letting us read bible stories and interesting books that I have never read before. Thank you for your hard work you put in everyday for us. I hope you have many good days to come.

Mr. Stark

My future is brighter and clearer because of all you’ve done for me. Thank you for being such a supportive teacher.

Ms. Toney

I never thought I was going to be able to write for the school newspaper, but thanks to you I did! You gave me confidence in my abilities to write. You taught me many social skills and how to be professional. I am extremely grateful that you pushed me to write for the school newspaper because through it, I was able to learn many valuable skills that I will be able to use as I continue my career.

Ms. Toney you get “BIG Props” as we use to say in my day! English / literature class has never been top priority on Mariano’s “go-to” subject list. But you made it interesting and engaged and supported him in ways I’ve never seen before. With your support Mariano was able to publish his poetry. It was a very proud moment for the family. Thank You! We really appreciate the work you did/do with him.

Mr. Washington

Thank you for encouraging my son to reach high in his education! You’ve been such a blessing.
