Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.

Lord, with a spirit of humility, let me do one good deed today and not tell anyone about it. Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us. Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

The DeLaSalle community has made a commitment this year to raise funds for a non-profit  called h20 for life. We will be partnered with a school in a developing country in need of water, filtration resources, and hygiene education. Katie Spotz – a national speaker – will share more information about the project during an all-school assembly after 1st hour on Monday.
Do you want to find a place where you and your friends can hang out, relax, or just play a few games while time passes you by during your lunch period? Then walk over to the Lasallian Ministry office for Game Day today during lunch! We have games for you to play or if you want or you can come with a few games of your own to introduce to others. See you today!
​All students are expected to wear the uniform according to the uniform policy. We will soon and periodically throughout the school year facilitate a uniform check. To avoid receiving uniform violations, here are some basic uniform reminders:

1. Shirts must be tucked in
2. Pants must be either khaki or black in color, made of cotton twill fabric with inset pockets. Pants may not be rolled at the ankles or be of any jean or skinny leg style.
3. A solid black or gray uniform sweatshirt with the DeLaSalle logo is the only sweatshirt permitted during the school day. Athletic or activity team sweatshirts are not acceptable uniform apparel during the school day.
4. Shoes, including laces and socks must be predominately black, brown, white, gray, or a mix of these colors.
​5. T-shirts worn under uniform shirts must be solid white, black, gray, or gold.
6. Skirt length must reach the top of the knee.

Please take time to review the complete uniform policy in our Student Parent Handbook. See Ms. Weeks with any questions.

​Students are encouraged to do their best to keep track of all personal belongings. Lost items should be brought to Ms. Weeks’ office and students may check for lost items there as well.
