Annual Fund 2022-2023 - Donate online!
November 18, 2022
Dear DeSales Catholic School Friends,
As we celebrate over 72 years in Catholic Education on Chestnut Ridge Road, I reflect on all we have accomplished over the last few decades. I think of all the many lives changed for the better by being a part of the DeSales School Community, including my own. Our families, students, teachers, staff, and administration continually come together to keep our community strong, hopeful, and grateful.
This year we are proud of so many accomplishments due to the generosity of donors through our Annual Fund. I am delighted to share with you some of the many recent highlights and blessings of this past year.
• New renovated parking lot and improvements to the Main House.
• New LED SmartPanels in each classroom.
• Awarded over $80,000 in tuition assistance this last year.
• Added another preschool classroom: DeSales is now home to 72 preschool Knights!
DeSales was truly the start of something great for me. I am a proud graduate, parent of a DeSales 1st grader, son of two alumni and grandson of two alumni. I have great memories of my time at DeSales, teachers like Mr. Schuster (he is still here!), our 8th grade Boston Trip, classmates that were like family and some days I even miss wearing a uniform.
I ask that you please consider making a gift to DeSales. Your support of the Annual Fund continues to make it possible for us to advance our school’s mission and to provide our students with the Catholic education that sets DeSales apart.
We look forward to the future with excitement and appreciation.
Ryan Ennis, DCS ‘98, Board President
