New Chromebooks!!!!

THANK YOU

Mike, Brian and Everyone at Fellowship Home Loans!!!!!

Technology presents a major challenge for families who do not have the economic resources to support the new learning environment.  Some students are sharing one phone with siblings or sharing a kitchen table while they continue their education.  Seeing this first hand Mike & Brian challenged their employees to donate one Chromebook for each student at The De La Salle School which they would match.

  The response was overwhelming!  Not only did they donate Chromebooks they brought along three Smart-TV's for our classrooms.

Thank you everyone at Fellowship Home Loans!

    Ways to Give

    Click here to donate to The De La Salle School.

    For close to 20 years, The De La Salle School has provided economically disadvantaged young men with a Christian and human education in the Lasallian tradition.  We are a Catholic middle school, grades 5 through 8, and we are part of the San Miguel/Nativity Coalition of schools, a nationwide model.

    Your support helps our faculty and administration provide a truly transformative experience to our students, all of whom come from economically disadvantaged circumstances with many living in failing school districts.  Your support helps our students get accepted into and attend Catholic high schools, many the first in their families to graduate from high school, and go on to achieve a college education.  We cannot do this without your help.

    We are non-tuition drive, and more than 90% of our budget is from individual, corporate and foundation donations. 

    We are a IRS recognized 501c3 tax exempt charity, and your donation is fully tax deductible.  Please join with us in our mission: please make a donation to  support our scholarship fund. 

    To make a donation by check, please write the check out to The De La Salle School, and send it to the attention of William Gault, Executive Director, The De La Salle School, 87 Pine Street, Freeport, NY 11520.

  • Artist of the Week - Week of 10 May, 2021

    Congratulations to our Artist of the Week -- Anthony Ulloa, Grade 8

    For this lesson, students were introduced to the Mexican folk-art tradition and history of alebrijes. Alebrijes are whimsical, brightly painted sculptures, that depict imaginary animal-like creatures. Aside from these intense, bold colors, they are also illustrated with intricate patterns. Students will learn about the history and origin of Alebrijes, their creator, Pedro Linarez, as well as their lasting effect on Mexican culture. Students will take a personality quiz, which results in each student receiving three animals, from which they must use and combine to create their elebrihe. Students will experiment with creating various albrejie, through the use of thumbnail sketches. These sketches act as a guide, for when they move on to create their final project, through the means of drawing techniques. This lesson asks for students to self-reflect and apply their own prior knowledge of Mexico, in order to explore a new art form and its lasting effects in Mexican culture, since the 1940s.

    Students in 7th grade had to create a castle using two-point perspective. For this project, students had learned about three different castle view points, that can all be created through two-point perspective (worms eye view, street level view, and birds eye view). Students had then created their castle using their desired view point, and had to add details and a background.
