May 13th Newsletter- Founder's Week full of lots of events!

Happy Founder's Weekend

Somehow it's already Founder's Weekend, what a fast semester it's been! This is a weekend of celebration and feast here at Del honouring St John de La Salle and what he created. 

This week we had a parent's night, the official opening of the Rocco L. Martino Innovation Centre and of course today our Founder's Day festivities. It was an important week of celebration. 

As we head into the weekend and the official Founder's Day on Sunday, it's also an important weekend of giving for the school. If you'd like to help us ensure that all of our students can continue to receive a Lasallian Education, click the link below!

Happy Founder's Weekend everyone!

Founder's Day!

Founder's Day 2022 was a success! Following an outstanding mass on St John Baptist De La Salle and why we celebrate May 15th each year, students and staff battled it out on the soccer pitch!

The Students took the game 4-1 and after got ice cream and pizza. It was a beautiful day and a nice reminder to all of why Del is special. Happy Founder's Weekend Everyone!

The Rocco L. Martino Innovation Centre Grand Opening

Last night after months of hard work the school finally was able to officially unveil the Rocco L. Martino Innovation Centre. The weather was perfect, the food exceptional and speeches that really spoke to what this building is going to be all about!

All three events are in the auditorium, starting at 7:00pm, admission is free. Students will be dropped off before the concert and picked up in the same location after the concert. (Please check Schoology for drop off/pick up times and locations, along with any additional instructions)

Science Fair Sign Up

The Grade 7 students have been working extremely hard on their projects and are very excited to share their scientific research. 

The Science Fair will be held on May 26th from 9-11am, and we are in need of parent volunteers to act as judges. This volunteer opportunity is open to anyone in the DEL community, and you do not need to have a child in Grade 7 to participate.

For parents who have children in Grade 5 and 6, this is a great way to learn about the Science Fair project your child will be completing in Grade 7. For more information and a link to sign-up:
