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

God, we pray for the grace to tear down walls that divide us and build bridges of understanding and unity. Amen

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

​We are getting ready to welcome many prospective students and families to our Open House on Monday night. So that we can clean and prepare our campus for our guests, we ask that all students who are not involved in an after school activity leave campus immediately after school on Monday. The Library & Technology Center will close at 3:15pm. Thank you for your cooperation.

Remember – all students, staff, and families may place prayers in prayer boxes located around campus (in the Main Office, Lasallian Ministry, and staff lounge). These prayers may be anonymous and may be offered for yourself or for the needs and joys you have seen in others.

On Monday at 8:30am, De Parents in Prayer will meet in the Florance Center. Sponsored by the Parent Association, this group of DeLaSalle parents and family members will gather on campus once a month to lift up our community in prayer. We hope you will feel encouraged by the knowledge that people care about you, are excited for you and are PRAYING FOR YOU! All parents, family members, friends, and alumni are welcome.

Questions? Contact Parent Association co-chair Jackie Schluter-Johnson or Peg Hodapp.

​Here is an upcoming opportunity for you to earn Christian Service hours:

  • Lasallian Ministry is sponsoring two opportunities on Wednesday, October 28 and Wednesday, November 4 immediately after school to assist elderly people with yard work and house chores.  The time is 3:15-5:15pm.  Please e-mail Ms. Hodapp if you are interested in either or both days.

​Do you like to go skiing in the winter? If you are interested in alpine skiing, please see Mr. Pribyl in the Student Activities office.

​Freshmen, mark your calendars for the night before Halloween for a 9th grade movie night. Join your friends for a showing of “Monster House” at 7:00pm in the LL Gray Gym. The movie should be done by 9:30pm. Student Council will provide free popcorn and Halloween candy. You may purchase pop and water. Admission is $2 (or only $1 if you also bring a canned good).

​Freshmen, you received new student IDs yesterday in your 1st hour class. You should throw the old ID away. You can use the ID in the Main Office if you arrive late. You can also scan or swipe it in the lunch line, eliminating the need to manually put in your number. And don’t forget, your ID gets in you for free to most regular season home games and theatre productions.

​How about getting everyone at your lunch table (or two) to pitch in a buck to give little one a lovable Lil Toy? Do it for the little kids who have so little. Bring items to Lasallian Ministry all month.
