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

God, may we always be open to growing in our faith as new insights help us deepen our knowledge and love of You and Your Church. Amen

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

Join us today for the next #LMLunchTalk. Please bring your lunch to A219 (formerly the Robert Casanova Room). This week, we will do an activity to get to know each other and build trust within the group. If you would like to come to the talks this semester, we ask you to please attend this meeting.

DeLaSalle Theatre features its latest productions – the Ninth Grade Shorts and Winter One-Acts. Happening this Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm in the Florence Center. The Ninth Grade Shorts are a series of short plays featuring 9th grade students exclusively. Far Way is DeLaSalle’s entry in the Minnesota State High School League One-Act Play Competition. Tickets cost $7 for general admission, $5 for students, and free for De students with current school ID.

We will recognize our winter sports athletes at a Pepfest after 8th hour tomorrow. Will your class claim the spirit stick? Let us hear your battle cry!

The Coding Club meets after school today from 3:00-4:30pm in B201. Learn how to program in Python or in Android AppInventor.  See Mr Pearson if you have any questions.

Lasallian Ministry will gather tomorrow for our first meeting of the new semester.  All are welcome.  The meeting will be held in A219 (formerly the Robert Casanova Room) from 7:30-8:20am. Snacks will be provided.

Looking to avoid freezing in the cold outdoors? Then come warm up by playing Chess with your fellow Islanders instead. Chess Club meets again tomorrow after school until 5:00pm in A204 (note new room). Players of all skill levels are welcome, and if you just have to time to stop by and play one quick game, that’s fine. See Ms. Kocourek or Anders Jenson with any questions.

The Tabletop Games Club meets after school tomorrow in B307 and will play King of New York (with King of Tokyo as a backup if we have enough players). If you haven’t played these before, please watch this episode of Geek and Sundry’s Tabletop: King of Tokyo video for an introduction. King of New York is based on King of Tokyo, but has an expanded rules set. (Note: this is a YouTube link, so students will not be able to watch at school).

Will the principal be DeLaSalle’s King of New York?  Will he even show up to do battle?

Enjoy a hearty breakfast and help support the varsity cheer team as they travel to Florida for the UCA National Competition! The breakfast is Saturday from 8am-1pm at Cuzzy’s (507 Washington Ave. N., Minneapolis). Eggs, bacon, sausage, american fries, pancakes, and french toast – all for $10!

Congratulations to Islander girls’ basketball senior guard Aiza Wilson, who was named Player of the Week by Northstar Girls Hoops. Wilson has averaged 17 points per game for the Islanders this season, including a season-high 29 points earlier this month. She gained just shy of 50 percent of the 8,000 votes cast.

Congratulations to these students who earned a place on the honor roll for the first semester.
