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

Lord, may we use this spring break to relax, catch up on sleep (and homework), and renew our relationships with family and friends. Amen

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

Tell us what you think….We invite students and parents who participated in an activity this winter to complete this program evaluation and share your feedback about your activity experience. Thank you.

Students, please do not walk along the railroad tracks at any time. Even if you do not see a train coming, this is very unsafe to do, and it is actually considered trespassing and against the law. See Ms. Weeks with any questions.

Students, please remember that you must complete and return an Anticipated Absence form if you know you will be away from school (e.g. a doctor’s appointment, family vacation, etc.). The Student-Parent Handbook says the form must be approved by the Dean of Students or Assistant Principal and turned in to the Main Office prior to the absence. It is also your responsibility to work with teachers to make up any work you may miss.
