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

Be with me, oh Holy Spirit, to fill me with the energy and positivity and comfort that only you can bring. Amen

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

On Saturday, we will host our 16th annual Starry Night prom for people with disabilities. More than 1,400 guests from all over the greater Twin Cities area will be enjoying an evening of music, fun, and dancing.  Over 200 DeLaSalle students have been involved in the planning, preparation and training that is required for such an event.  This is entirely volunteer, no Christian Service hours are awarded for participation – so these students deserve to be applauded.  Due to the importance of the training and preparation, only those students who have participated on the committee are allowed to attend.

Do you like parties? Then why not come to Chess Club’s end of the year party, have a treat, play some chess, and watch your fellow Islanders receive awards! Chess Club will meet after school today until 5:00pm in A204 for one last time this school year. Please note that we are meeting until 5:00pm to celebrate the spectacular season. Players of all skill levels are welcome, and if you just have time to stop by and play one quick game that’s fine. See Ms. Kocourek or Anders Jenson with any questions.

Girls’ basketball will have a meeting in the gym from 3:15-3:30pm today. Come learn about spring and summer workouts.

Tomorrow marks the final Scrabble Club meeting of 2016. All are welcome to play after school in Mrs. Sullivan’s room, A206.

Students who want to run for Student Council Executive Board must turn in their application to Mr. Zavitz by 3pm tomorrow. Applications for Student Council class representative are now available in the Main Office and are due Friday, May 13.

Dig out your loose change! Student Council is having a “penny war” between grade levels this week. The funds will go to disaster aid for the earthquake in Ecuador. There will be one jar for each grade level, in which you can put money during lunches. The goal is to put money into the jars of other grades. The grade with the least amount of money in their jar wins ice cream at next Friday’s bonfire.

Next Monday is the last time this school year that DeLaSalle will volunteer at Sharing & Caring Hands. Students who want to help serve the afternoon meal after school on May 9 should e-mail Miss Barry. There’s only room for eight students.

Please be aware that guidance office staff are helping proctor AP exams this week and next. Students, you should check with your teacher before going to the guidance office – and you should only go to the guidance office if you have an emotional need, an appointment, or need help with college advising.
