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

Psychologist, Dr. Jef Maynard, joins us for a conversation about adolescent mental health. Please join us tonight at 6:30pm in A219.

The late start originally planned for tomorrow has been canceled. That’s because the professional development originally planned for March 15 was held last Thursday. That means classes tomorrow start at 8:30am.

Student Council is sponsoring an Out of Uniform Day on Wednesday. You must buy and wear a wristband to be out of uniform. You can buy wristbands for $1 during lunches today and tomorrow or for $2 before school on Wednesday.

#LMLunchTalk during all lunch periods on Wednesday, March 16.  Note:  The meetings have been moved to the Lasallian Ministry office so, plan to bring your lunch to the office. All are welcome. Topic TBA

In case you missed it, Hennepin County lit the Lowry Avenue bridge in black and gold last night in honor of the Islanders’ win. You can find an album of pictures on the DeLaSalle Facebook page.
