Tomorrow’s out of uniform day is Islander spirit day. Show off that Islander pride! Students may wear any DeLaSalle apparel, black and gold/yellow, or Hawaiian shirts and shorts. Get into the Islander Spirit!
Prayer Service Today
We will gather for a prayer service after 1st hour to celebrate Catholic Schools Week and to promote our partnership with H2O For Life. We welcome Deacon Mickey Friesen as our presider. Lasallian Ministry will not gather on this day due to the liturgy.
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. We had a slow start during lunches yesterday and early results show the class in the lead to win an out of uniform day is 11th grade (the class in last place is 10th grade). Crack open your piggy banks, ask your grandma for a check, hit up your boss.
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!!!
If you signed up to donate blood tomorrow, enjoy a free breakfast at school before the blood drive. Students who signed up may use their pass to the blood drive to get into Mr. Zavitz’s room, B205, tomorrow starting at 7:45am for bagels and cream cheese. Thank you to those who are participating.
Sadie Hawkins Dance Saturday
Whip out those flannel T-shirts, cowgirl boots, cowboy hats, and jeans. It’s time for a good ol’ fashioned country-western get-together! This Saturday from 7:30-10:30pm. Tickets cost $7 or $6 with a canned good. Mosey on down to the Florance Center for a fun night of dancing. Now remember, girls, it’s your turn to ask the guys to the dance (or just come with your friends). Have fun!
- When washing hands, turn off the water while you lather.
- Time your shower, try to keep it under five minutes.
- Turn off the water while you brush your teeth.
- Use cold water in your washing machine and only run full loads
- Use a reusable water bottle!
- Put plastic bottles filled with sand in your toilet tank to decrease the water volume you are flushing.
- Only run your dishwasher when it’s full.
- Invest in a rain barrel.
- Every time you flush the toilet 5-7 gallons of water is used. Only flush when necessary and don’t use the toilet as a trash can by putting kleenex, small trash in it.
- Don’t buy bottled water
The daily recommended intake of water is 8 cups, although it can be found in most foods, not just liquid water!
The average American uses 80-100 gallons of water per day (mostly from toilet flushing)!
