Off to a Great Start!
DeLaSalle teachers, staff, and coaches and moderators are excited to welcome students back-to-school for the 2015-16 school year. This begins our 116th year on Nicollet Island and we are again a bigger school, drawing some 750 students from more than 110 different grade schools. We thank you for your commitment to partner with us at DeLaSalle this year.
We renew our pledge to be even better in all that we do, certainly as teachers and learners, but even more importantly, as people called to serve each other and make God present in our world. That starts with a commitment to the 2015-16 school prayer theme as chosen by president, Barry Lieske: “How good it is when God’s people live in unity.” This theme guides us in all we do – from the first day of practices to staff orientation sessions to the first day of school. It will be woven into student programs throughout the year.
Families can find back-to-school information on varying topics here. If you cannot find the information you are looking for here, please call the Main Office at 612.676.7600 for direct assistance.
