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

May my thoughts, my words and actions reflect the Spirit that dwells within me. Amen

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

​We sincerely care about student safety, so any physical games involving the use of fake firearms/water guns/fake weapons/balloons/nerf toys, etc., are NOT permitted on campus or on the surrounding island. Students found with these items or engaging in these types or similar games may face school consequences. See Ms. Weeks with any questions.

​The DeLaSalle Cafe is going meatless again today as part of our Meatless Monday initiative. The GREEN Team estimates that our first Meatless Monday last week allowed us to reduce our carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 5,400 lbs this past week.  A pound of CO2 condensed to solid form would be about the size of an average ice cube and 5,400 ice cubes could nearly fill two classrooms from floor to ceiling.  That is a significant reduction in CO2!  Today’s meatless entree is cheese quesadillas with beans and corn. Other meatless options offered today include a Greek vegetable wrap and tossed salad.
