Dear Lasallians,

We’re in the homestretch! Summer is near, and so is the end of the school year. As you read this edition of the E-News, our Colleges and Universities have concluded their Commencement ceremonies, and our Secondary and Middle Schools are preparing for or completing their final exams (some have already graduated, too!). Our Youth and Family Ministries continue to provide care and education to the students entrusted to them, but even they will be switching over to summer schedules, full of safe and fun, on and off campus activities.

We encourage you to keep an eye on your e-mail throughout the summer months as we keep you up-to-date on the different activities happening throughout the District, with our E-News. Our San Miguel Middle Schools, with their extended summer programs will no doubt be producing photos and news, as well as our Lasallian Youth Assembly at Niagara University in Niagara, NY, and the Regional Summer Retreat for the Brothers at Lewis University in Romeoville, IL.

Stay tuned and check the District website often! Until then, best wishes to all our Lasallian students in their academics, and good luck to all our graduates on the next step of their Lasallian journey!

Over a century and a half ago, the spirit of LaSalle came to this burgeoning factory city on the Hudson. Founded by the Brothers of the Christian Schools, its purpose was to transform poor immigrant boys into moral, productive, honorable men. Its method was to teach mind, body and spirit, to give lessons in history and geometry, literature and physics, to coach teams and instill a sense of God’s presence in the lives of the young men entrusted into their care. Its ultimate goal–to turn young men’s eyes up from the grit of Troy, New York, the tenements and streets of mills, to seek eternity through a defined path and purpose on this earth.
