Graduate Support Program - 20/20 Club

20/20 Club

Ever hear the saying hindsight is 20/20?

We all have times in our life we can look back on and think I wish I could have done that differently. One of the most influential moments in many lives is the growth we experienced in high school.  If you were able to go back and change something about your high school life, would you do something different?  I think each of us would. 

The 20/20 club is a group of individuals who want to be the “glasses” for the graduates of The De La Salle School to guide them in seeing how bright their futures can be.  


Tidings From Brother Thomas

Dear Friends,

We have three young men named Daniel in our Class of 2017.  Towards the end of last year the Mother of one of them wrote to me: 


Dear Brother Thomas,


Thank you for an amazing school year.  Daniel always has nice things to say about his day at school.  It’s very comforting to know that your child not only loves his school but is also getting a great education.


With warm regards,


Such testimony makes it easy to get enthused about beginning another year at The De La Salle School!


Our thirteenth year got underway this past Monday when we welcomed 64 young men.  Included in that number are sixteen fifth graders.  Their eighth grade buddies are mobilized to ensure that our newest students get adjusted quickly and feel at home and are ready to work. 


Returning students only encountered one new face on our staff, this year’s full time volunteer, Mr. Alex Vera.  We are blessed that our dedicated team of professionals will benefit from the addition of this California native and alumnus of the College of the Holy Cross.  Mr. Vera is seen below, left, with some of the new students from the incoming Fifth grade class.


Four members of the faculty are themselves students, currently pursuing their master’s degrees.  The realty of their lives as students reminds them of the joy of learning and makes them acutely aware of a scholar’s need for a successful and timely completion of assignments.  The young men in these teachers’ De La Salle classrooms will probably be reminded frequently of how to be good students!

The De La Salle School

The De La Salle School is a scholarship Catholic Middle School for young men in grades 5 through 8.  Most of our students are immigrants or children of immigrants. We provide a quality education, and nurture each student's growth, spiritually, academically, socially and physically in collaboration with their parent(s) or guardian(s). We emphasize respect, responsibility, leadership and service, thereby preparing the young men to be caring citizens of the world.  

We share in the LaSallian heritage, and are rooted in 330 years of the De La Salle Christian Brothers tradition of education.  We are on the campus of Our Holy Redeemer Parish, in Freeport, N.Y.  Established in 2002, we are at capacity with 64 students, and have 104 graduates, who we continue to support through our Graduate Student Program.  

Our school depends entirely on the generosity of our benefactors.  We are enriched through the dedication of many caring volunteers and our staff.  To help in any way, please call the school at 516-379-8660, email us at DeLaSalleLI@hotmail.com, or to make a secure online donation, please click on the "Click Here to Make a Donation" button above, in this column.  To make a secure online donation for our Graduate Support Program's 20-20 campaign, please click on the "Click To Give" button in the left column.
