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

Lord, bless all of those who make a DeLaSalle education possible for us and let us give thanks for their generosity. Amen

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

At DeLaSalle, we focus on daily supplies for babies born to families in need. Every donation you bring in to Lasallian Ministry or to Albers Atrium, whether big or small, will go to the Northside Total Life Care Center. Give a little … for the babies!
Congratulations to these 9th grade students who have been chosen by their peers to represent the Class of 2018 this year in Student Council:

  • Ben Steiner
  • Julia Eubanks
  • Maggie Kerwin
  • Jazmine Ngwu
  • Jacob Brouillard
  • Mara Halloran

It was a very close election all the way through, so much so that we will have six 9th grade class representatives this year due to a tie between two of the candidates. Student Council would like to thank all those who ran and participated in the process.
