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

God, may we welcome with smiles and open arms those who desire a DeLaSalle education at our Open House tonight. Amen

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

All college visits take place in the Guidance office, unless otherwise noted. In order to meet with a college rep, you must register for the visit through your Naviance account and notify your teacher at least one day before the visit. You may show your teacher your iPad with the registration on Naviance as your pass. Remember, you are responsible for any work you miss during your visit with the college rep.

​Tonight, we host many prospective students and families to our Open House. 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 today. The Library & Technology Center will close at 3:15pm. Thank you for your cooperation.

​Tomorrow will be an online learning day. You do not need to physically report to school but you should check Canvas, as teachers will share their activity by 9am. You can expect 20-30 minutes of activity for each class. Teachers will be available at various times throughout the day to respond to questions. This online learning day helps us practice how learning will occur should DeLaSalle have to implement an alternative school day in the winter due to inclement weather.

​A special thank you to the entire DeLaSalle community for your participation in Diversity Week. At our next Lasallian Ministry meeting – this Thursday – we will have a special appreciation breakfast and activity, Please come to the Robert Casanova Room from 7:30-8:20am. All are welcome

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.

This morning 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.
