On June 23rd, a full day of activities to wrap up the 2015-16 school at LaSalle was held. Below are a few photos from the presentation of school awards, graduates wearing their caps and gowns to parade through the entire agency’s facilities and grounds to the applause of all staff and students – even receiving a standing ovation from when they politely interrupted a meeting of the Albany Regional Office of Children and Family Services (ARO OCFS) in the Hanner Center for Excellence and Lasallian Mission. A cookout and afternoon packed with physical activities and challenging games followed. Formal graduation exercises are on June 24th at 5:00 p.m. in the Hanner Center at LaSalle.
