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

God, teach us to be generous with the gifts You have given us. Amen

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


The Islander boys’ basketball team plays Fridley today in the quarterfinal of the state boys’ basketball tournament. The game is at 10:00am at Williams Arena.

There is no school today; however, teachers will be available by appointment between 8:00-9:00am and 1:30-4:00pm.

Morning transportation routes will operate on a normal schedule today, meaning students may take the bus to school to board fan buses. Fan buses to the game will leave De starting at 9am and return from Williams Arena after the game. Afternoon transportation routes will leave from DeLaSalle at 12:40pm for students who need a ride home after the game.

You may pre-buy tickets for the game from 8:00-8:45am today in Albers Atrium or at the Williams Arena ticket windows. Tickets cost $14 for adults and $9 for students.

If the Islanders win today, there would be no school tomorrow. Thursday’s semifinal game is at 12:00pm at the Target Center. Although there would be no school Thursday, morning transportation routes will run 2 hours later than normal for those students who need a ride to school to board fan buses. Afternoon transportation routes on Thursday will leave DeLaSalle as normal, at 3:10pm.

The professional development originally planned as part of a late start on Tuesday, March 15 would instead be held on Thursday, March 10 – and March 15 would become a full day of classes.

Today is the last day to sign up for a fan bus to the girls’ basketball section championship tomorrow at 7:00pm against Como Park. The game is at St. Paul Washington Technology Magnet. To ride the bus, you must sign up here by the end of the day today. The fan bus will leave from the front of DeLaSalle on Thursday at 6:00pm and return to De immediately after the game.

The Art Club will NOT meet today. Have fun at the game!

Fr. Joe Kuharski will be back on campus in the chapel to hear confessions again on Monday, March 14 during all lunch periods.  If you did not have an opportunity to go to confession last week and would like to come, please plan to stop over to Lasallian Ministry during your lunch.

A non-profit wants to help junior and senior girls with difficult family or financial circumstances attend Prom by giving them a gown or dress and accessories at no charge. To be eligible, you must be in a financial or family situation such that you would not be able to go to prom unless you received a dress from Operation Glass Slipper. You must get a referral from an adult outside of your family (e.g. a teacher, counselor, clergy member, etc.). Referral forms are available in the DeLaSalle counseling office.
