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

God, as we prepare for our final exams, help us apply the knowledge we have learned all semester. Amen

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

Students, you will clean out your school locker this afternoon. There is 13 minutes built into the school schedule between 7th and 8th period to clean out your locker. Please recycle and trash any items you won’t take with you in the appropriate containers in the hallways. You must check in with a faculty or staff member after you have cleaned out your locker so we can record that information. See Ms. Weeks with any questions.

Final exams are scheduled tomorrow, Thursday, and Friday. Final exams will be held tomorrow in periods 1, 2, and 4. Buses tomorrow will leave at 12:15pm. Remember, you must be in school uniform and the DeLaSalle Cafe will only serve breakfast on exam days. Click here for more information about finals.

Have a summer job, play in a sports league, or want to hang out with your friends but don’t have a car? Ride the bus or light rail. For just $20, you can get a special Summer Student Pass that gives you unlimited rides on buses and light rail all summer long. The pass is valid daily from 5:00am-10:00pm from June 1-September 8. Click here for more information, including how to buy your pass.

Please note, DeLaSalle will be a participating school in this program. However, if you do not see the school’s name listed, please check back the next day as DeLaSalle sent Metro Transit its registration materials on Friday and we may not have been included in the registration system over the long holiday weekend.

There will be a cross country meeting today in Coach Pearson’s room (A202) at 8:00am for those interested in running this fall.  Email Coach Pearson if you have any questions or cannot make the meeting.
