No food, drink or gum is allowed during all school assemblies. Liturgical theologian and composer Fr. Michael Joncas will celebrate the Mass.

Lifetouch photographers took school pictures yesterday. Picture proofs should arrive in a couple of weeks. Picture Retake Day is Friday, October 2. Parents who wish to order picture packages may do so through the Lifetouch website. Please refer to DeLaSalle’s Picture Day ID MI195041Y0.

Auditions for the fall plays – “Where the Wild Things Are” and “The Once and Future King” = will be Tuesday and Wednesday from 3:15-5:30pm in the Band Room. You don’t need to come to both days, just choose which day you prefer. Call backs will be Thursday, as needed.

You don’t need to prepare, you’ll be auditioning with provided materials. All experience levels are encouraged to audition. We’re looking for performers of all kinds: dancers, singers, musicians.

A note on both shows: Where the Wild Things Are is a ensemble created show and will be created by the students cast. The production will be performed October 22-24 at the Phoenix Theatre in Uptown Minneapolis.

The Once and Future King, the story of King Arthur, will be in the round and involved stage combat. The performance is scheduled November 13-14 and 19-21.
