I lift my heart to you, O Lord, to be strengthened for this day. Amen

Are you interested in sustainability projects like bio-diesel, Meatless Mondays, and designing urban green space?  How about activities like environmental advocacy or gardening?  If so, join the GREEN Team!  We are a student-led organization dedicated to creating a brighter, greener, more just community. Our first meeting is Tuesday at 3pm in B311 (Ms. Peterson’s and Mr. Banas’s room). Email Mr. Tim Lynch for more information or join us at our meetings; we always meet on Tuesdays after school. We look forward to seeing you there!

Did you know that, as part of our new building project, there are new hallways that connect the A and the B buildings? You can find these hallways near the Main Gym or through Albers Atrium. The hallways offer a quick, easy way to get from a class on the 1st floor of the A building, for example, to the 3rd floor of the B building.

Students and their families may apply for free and reduced lunch benefits. An English version of the application is available here. A Spanish version of the application is available here. You may return completed forms to Mrs. Pam Beckman in the DeLaSalle Cafe.

Students must apply for the lunch benefits each year, even if they qualified for the program in the previous school year. The deadline to apply is October 3.

A student or parent may deposit cash or check payment into a student’s cafeteria account in the Main Office at the school during normal business hours. If you are depositing money via check, please include the student’s last name and ID number in the check memo.

Families may also deposit electronically. Click here for more information and to get started.

Seniors who did not apply for a position as a retreat team leader have until Thursday, September 1 to do so. Please click here for the application. The training for those students who have been accepted as retreat team leaders will be held on Saturday, September 17 from 3:00-6:00pm.

DeLaSalle has implemented a new system as part of our new building project that will better manage access to and within the school. Please note that, if you arrive to school after 8:30am, you may enter the first set of doors to the main entrance in the Albers Atrium but must buzz in to enter the school. As a reminder, students are not permitted to prop or open doors for outside visitors during the school day.

Seniors – If you created a website for History Day last year and would like to save your website, you need to convert it from a NHD Weebly website to regular Weebly website.

To do this, sign in to your account on nhd.weebly.com.  You will see a “Convert” button – click on this button to save your website to the regular weebly site. That’s all you need to do!  After September 1, all websites that remain on the NHD Weebly site will be deleted!
