​For the past 23 years around Christmas, DeLaSalle has spiritually adopted several families through Sponsor a Family Minnesota and the Aliveness Project.  These families have benefited greatly from our generous spirit. Last year students and staff raised around $4,000.  Several teachers have graciously agreed to be the money collection point for each grade level.  Donate money in 9th and 10th grade Theology Classes or in 11th and 12th grade English Classes.  Money collection is daily and continues through December 2. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

​Anyone who would like to go Christmas shopping for our adoptive families, please sign up in the Lasallian Ministry office or send an e-mail to Ms. Hodapp.  We will shop after school on Friday, December 4 from 3:15-5:00pm. Christian Service hours WILL NOT be awarded for this event.

​Next Wednesday (November 18), Lasallian Ministry will kick off the first in a series of lunchtime discussions about current topics important to teens.  #LMLunchtalks will provide an opportunity, for all students who wish to participate, to engage in healthy dialogue and learning. Our first topic is teens and social media.  Mark your calendar and plan to bring your lunch to the Casanova room.

​Some students were reassigned to different advisers in the college counseling office while Mrs. McAdams was out for health reasons. Mrs. McAdams is now back to work full time. Those students who were reassigned may report to Mrs. McAdams again. Click here to see who your adviser is based on what grade you are in and what kind of advising you need.
