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!


Congratulations to the Islanders, who earned a 65-52 win over Fridley on Wednesday in the quarterfinal of the Class 3A state boys’ basketball tournament. #1 DeLaSalle faces #5 Monticello today at 12:00pm at Target Center.

There is no school today. 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.

Fan buses will shuttle fans to Target Center, leaving from DeLaSalle starting at 11:00am. Game tickets cost $14 for adults and $9 students. Fans may only purchase tickets at Target Center prior to the game.

The professional development originally planned as part of a late start on Tuesday, March 15 will instead be held today – and March 15 becomes a full day of classes, starting at 8:30am.

Good luck to the Islander girls’ basketball team as they face Como Park tonight at 7pm in the section final. The winner goes to the state tournament next week. The game is at St. Paul Washington Technology Magnet.

You have until 10am today to sign up for a fan bus to the game. Click here to sign up.

For fans who signed up for the fan bus, the bus will leave from the front of DeLaSalle at 6:00pm and return to De immediately after the game.

Psychologist, Dr. Jef Maynard, joins us for a conversation about adolescent mental health on Monday, March 14 at 6:30pm in A219. You may submit questions in advance to Ms. Stacey Carter. Questions can be kept confidential.

The late start originally planned for Tuesday, March 15 has been canceled. That’s because the professional development originally planned for March 15 will instead be held today – and March 15 will become a full day of classes, starting at 8:30am.
