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

Lord God, as this election approaches, we ask for minds and hearts that are open to hearing the voice of leaders who will bring us closer to Your Kingdom. Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

Tonight, we welcome prospective students and families to DeLaSalle for our fall Open House. Please leave campus immediately after school so that we can clean the campus for our guests. Thank you!

Tomorrow is a 2-hour late start. That means classes will begin two hours later than normal, at 10:30am instead of 8:30am. Morning transportation routes also run two hours later than usual.

Once a student arrives on campus, he/she may not leave the school building except with permission or for an event such as a scheduled school activity. Loitering in the gyms, locker rooms, school parking lot, fields, Founder’s Park, or on Nicollet Island is not allowed.  A student who exhibits uncooperative behavior before or after school loses the privilege of remaining on school grounds before or after school and parent(s) will be contacted. In severe cases, the student may also lose the privilege of participating in after-school activities.

To ensure a positive and uniform appearance of all DeLaSalle students, items of apparel must be in accordance with the guidelines provided in the Student-Parent handbook and are subject to administrative approval.

  • T-shirts worn under uniform shirts must be solid white, black, gray, or gold. They must be free from any graphics or lettering and may not hang out from outer garment at hemline or sleeve
  • Students may not wear a long-sleeved shirt under a short-sleeved uniform shirt.
  • For warmth, students may only wear a uniform sweater or uniform sweatshirt.
  • Hats, scarves and other head coverings are not permitted during the school day

All activity lockers need to be cleaned out no later than next Wednesday morning. Clean out your locker, and lock your locker with the lock provided for you. Failure to do so properly may result in loss of locker room privileges. If you do not clean out your locker by Nov. 9, your belongings will be removed and donated.

How do we know that God exists? Is it just a matter of faith, or is it reasonable to believe in a Creator? Being that a small but growing minority of Americans (almost 1 in 10) do not believe in God at all, now is a good time to rediscover how solid our belief in God truly is. Learn about how even our innate desire for God gives us proof. Come to Lasallian Ministry during lunch hours on Mondays (today, Nov. 14, Nov. 21) to enjoy a free cookie, a brief video clip, and some good discussion with Fr. Joe.

Around Christmas, for the past 24 years, DeLaSalle has spiritually adopted several families through Sponsor a Family Minnesota and the Aliveness Project.  These families have benefited greatly from our generous spirit. Last year the students and staff brought in around $4,000.  Several teachers have graciously agreed to be the money collection point for each grade level.  Donate money in 9th and 10th grade Theology Classes or 11th and 12th grade English Classes.  Money collection is daily and begins on Wednesday, November 9 and runs through Thursday, December 1.   Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Lasallian Ministry meets this Thursday from 7:30-8:20am in D117. Our topic of discussion this week is on equity in schools.  All are welcome. Don’t forget you get a raffle ticket for every time you participate in a Lasallian Ministry sponsored event and a drawing will be held at our Christmas Party in December.

Lasallian Ministry has coordinated with the Household and Outside Maintenance for Elderly (HOME) program, a Christian Service opportunity. The HOME program allows for volunteers to come to homes of the elderly to rake leaves / sweep their yards. This event is scheduled for Saturday November 19, from 9am-12pm. Transportation will be provided from DeLaSalle to the homes that we are assigned. We have room to take up to 10 students. If you are interested and want more information please email Ms. Ortiz no later than November 15th.
