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

Lord, all through this day, let me touch the lives of others for good, whether through the word I speak, the prayer I speak, or the life I live. Amen

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

​Seniors and their families may now order graduation accessories from Jostens. Students received an order package during a meeting yesterday with a Jostens representative. Students who did not receive an information packet may pick one up from the Guidance office. Orders may be placed on Tuesday, October 13, when the representative returns and will be available during student lunches. Payment plans are available.

While the order form inside the packet students received included blank spaces to fill in cap and gown information, seniors should instead complete this Google form with their name, height, and weight.

Please visit the Jostens website for more information.

​WHY IS RESPECT LIFE MONTH IMPORTANT? It is a time to move away from the ways people disrespect life through war, pornography, poverty, abuse of the elderly, neglect of children, and abortion. At DeLaSalle, we focus on daily supplies for babies born to families in need.  Every donation you bring in to Lasallian Ministry or to Albers Atrium, whether big or small, will go to the Northside Total Life Care Center. Give a little … for the babies!

​Lasallian Ministry meets today from 7:30-8:20am in the Robert Casanova Room.  This week will include discussion and activities.  Hope you can make it, all are welcome. Snacks are provided.

​Do you want to find a place where you and your friends can hang out, relax, or just play a few games while time passes you by during your lunch period? Then come to Lasallian Ministry for Game Day today. See you there!

  • Students should provide an email address that is checked regularly when submitting an application.
  • Write down (and put in a safe place) any passwords you create.
