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

God, we give thanks today for the many teachers and staff who work hard to provide us with a Catholic, Lasallian education. Amen

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

This summer, DeLaSalle will be refreshing the devices for its IslePad one-to-one program with the purchase of new iPad Air devices. As part of this transition, DeLaSalle is offering students the opportunity to purchase their current iPad 2 device for $100 from May 4-15. This purchase price includes the case and charger that is currently assigned to the student. Click here to find the iPad Purchase Form. Devices that are not purchased will need to be returned on the last day of classes. Charges will be incurred for any damage to the device or charger.

If you are interested in running for Student Council, you must attend an informational meeting during your lunch hour Friday in the Robert Casanova Room. The meeting is required in order to run for Student Council.

Periods 7 & 8 will be flipped this week which means you should go to your 8th hour class when you would normally go to your 7th hour class.

All students are reminded that they must have a pass to leave their lunch period, expect for using the nearby restrooms. Also, students are not permitted to leave lunch before the bell rings. Doing so is a distraction to classes in session, and school consequences may apply for students found in hallways without a pass. See Ms. Weeks with questions.

The last waste sort of the year is today after school. Students and staff will work together to sort about 20 bags of lunchroom waste. All are welcome for any amount of time you can contribute between 4-6pm. We have aprons and gloves and will take apart the bags to see how accurately we sort our recycling, trash and compost. Please let Ms. W-F or Mr. Grue know if you can help.

Seniors are required to attend a mandatory meeting with Mr. Benson tomorrow during lunch. The meeting will cover details of the last two weeks of school, as well as Baccalaureate and graduation information. The meeting will last 15 minutes. Please report directly to the Robert Casanova Room before getting your lunch.

Attention Starry Night Prom Committee Members:  Our final meeting is Thursday PROMPTLY at 7:45am in the Robert Casanova Room

On Saturday, we will host our 15th annual Starry Night prom for people with disabilities. More than 1,200 guests from the greater Twin Cities area will enjoy an evening of music, fun, and dancing.  Over 200 DeLaSalle students have been involved in the planning, preparation and training that is required for such an event.  This is entirely volunteer, no Christian Service hours are awarded for participation – so these students deserve to be applauded.  Due to the importance of the training and preparation, only those students who have participated on the committee are allowed to attend.

National College Decision Day is Friday, May 1.Seniors on Friday may wear a college t-shirt or sweatshirt, but must wear uniform pants or shorts. During lunches on that day, seniors are welcome to sign a board with their name and which school they are attending and get a treat.
