MILWAUKIE — La Salle Prep here welcomed more than 700 students back to classes this month. The school has enjoyed a healthy increase in enrollment over the past three years and has added experienced teachers and administrators to manage the needs of the growing community.

La Salle’s senior class welcomed the new school year with a sunrise prayer service Sept. 3 at the top of Rocky Butte in Portland. This event, which started last year, has become a Lasallian tradition, a way to begin the term in prayer and thanksgiving.

This past year, La Salle’s principal Tom Dudley announced his retirement. After 40 years in education, he decided it was time to pass the baton of institutional leadership to long-time La Salle educator and vice principal Andrew Kuffner.

“While we miss the leadership and camaraderie that marked Tom’s tenure, we are delighted that Andrew Kuffner will serve as La Salle’s tenth principal," says Denise Jones, La Salle Prep president. "He has been an inspiring educator and administrator at La Salle for more than 17 years and he brings integrity and compassion to his new role as principal.”

Jones and Kuffner kept busy over the summer hiring educators to meet the growing student body. As new faces settled in to the learn about the inclusive Lasallian model of education, workers were performing seismic upgrades to the theater, renovating the cafeteria courtyard, adding electronic keyless doors and installing a campus monitor and hospitality station.

New staff paused for a photo with Jones and Kuffner at the new greeter’s table at La Salle’s main entry. New La Salle staff include Jake Baertlein, Mario De Ieso, Glenn Elliott, Nicholas Hurt, Miles Kane, Jane Nitschke, Stacy Roeder, Amanda Schieber, Matthew Shedlock, Tracie Talerico, Kara Weiss, Maggie Writt, Seth Altshuler and Debbie Schuster.

“As we welcome new members to this community we recognize and trust that God is directing us," Kuffner told the group. "We have all been called, in one way or another, to this work and as such, we have been endowed with all that we need to be successful and productive. Let us move toward this school year with hope and trust in God’s providence and grace.”
