Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.
God, may we be living water to others. Amen

Catholic Schools Week
This year, for Catholic Schools Week, we honor the commitment to the H2O for Life initiative that we started last fall with the visit of Katie Spotz and an initial collection. We are supporting a project to build a well for a school in Nicaragua. Our goal is to raise $2,000; so far, we have raised $1,033. Here is how you can help:
You can find 4 collection jars – one for each grade – on the staff table during lunches. You are encouraged to bring in donations (cash, change, checks) throughout the week. The goal is to collect the LEAST amount of money for your class by putting your donations into another class’s jar. The class with the LEAST amount collected by Friday will win an out of uniform day in February.
If we, as a school community, collect $2,000 or more, we will receive another late start day before the end of the school year. Don’t forget to bring in your donations!!!
Out of Uniform
Today’s out of uniform theme is Pajama Day. Come to school looking like you just rolled out of bed! You may wear bathrobes, slippers, and even carry a blanket or a favorite stuffed animal.
Tomorrow’s out of uniform day is Ugly Sweater Day. Nothing says “hello winter” like an old, ugly sweater. The older and uglier, the better.
Come to the Main Gym right after school today to cheer on as the junior boys take on the senior boys in the Powderpuff volleyball game.
Go Snow Tubing at Theodore Wirth
Put on your snow pants and tube down some fun hills with your friends! Buses depart DLS at 3:45pm and return at 6:45pm. All attendees must ride buses. Sign up for the event during lunches today in the Florance Center. Tickets are $6 and will be sold at the event.
Annual Blood Drive
Students who are 16 and older can now sign up in the Main Office to donate blood Friday. All sign ups must be completed by Wednesday at 3pm. Students age 16 must have a signed permission form on file from their parents in order to be eligible to donate blood. All students 16+ must meet the height and weight requirements. Students under the age of 16 are not eligible to donate. Please see Ms. Weeks with questions.
Only 2.5% of earth’s water is freshwater.
Of the liquid surface fresh water, 87% is contained in lakes, 11% in swamps, and only 2% in rivers. Small quantities of water also exist in the atmosphere and in living beings.
Now you know…
Vanessa Voller, ’12 will also be present to share some information about another summer opportunity for students through the Amigos de las America’s program.
In the morning, learn more about this issue and how to speak to your legislator in an effective way. Then you will meet with your state senator and representative to talk to them about this issue and any other issues that are important to you. After a free lunch, you can participate in a youth-only, youth-led meeting with Governor Dayton to speak to him directly about the issues that matter to us as young people. This is a great opportunity that doesn’t come around often!
