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

God, may I keep my faith in You at the core of your life, serve others with all my heart, build unity through community, and be proud to be a LASALLIAN. Amen

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

Students are reminded that they must be in a supervised location after school – either with a teacher in a classroom, participating in a DeLaSalle activity, or in the Library or new Islander Commons area. Please note that hallways are closed after 6:00pm and that you may not access your locker after this time. Thank you for your cooperation.

Senior portraits need to be taken by October 23 to be included in the yearbook and the class composite that lines the halls of DeLaSalle. DeLaSalle has chosen David Bank Studios to prepare the class composite photo and to provide all senior portraits for the yearbook.

David Bank Studios will be on campus during lunches today to take head shots for free for seniors who wish to do them on campus. The photographer will be in the creative learning side of the Thies Technology Lab. Please remember to bring a change of clothes on that day for your photo in case you plan to dress up for Homecoming.

Please call 763.571.2265 or click here to have your photos taken at the studio. You may still choose a photographer of your liking for your senior package.
