There are no classes today as staff will participate in an all-day professional development. Another all-day professional development is scheduled on Tuesday, April 18, which extends the Easter break by one day.

Students, you will meet with your academic mentor on Friday after first period. The meeting is s chance to review the first semester and check in on how the second semester is going. Please bring coursework to work on while you are not meeting individually with your mentor.

DeLaSalle students perform “Hamlet”, the school’s entry in the Minnesota State High School League’s Competition One-Act play. Shakespeare’s tragedy is presented in a brisk one act capturing the intrigue, plotting and revenge.

De Parents in Prayer, a Parent Association-sponsored group, meets in the Florance Center Monday from 8:30-9:30am. The group gathers monthly to lift up the school community in prayer. Students, staff, and families may place prayer requests in prayer boxes in the Lasallian Ministry office, Main Office, and Theology classrooms. Requests may remain anonymous.

The Ski Club plans to go skiing Friday at the Hyland Hills Ski Area. A bus will leave from DeLaSalle after school at approximately 3:30pm and return around 8:00 pm. In order to attend each student will need to sign up using this Google form, and obtain a liability waiver form from the Student Activities office and return the form with a signature from one’s parents to the Student Activities office. Each student is responsible for their own lift ticket and any other equipment necessary. Each student is allowed to bring their own gear which can be stored in the Student Activities office, or they are able to rent gear at the ski hill. A lift ticket is $19, ski or snowboard rentals is $17, and a helmet is $8. Please see Adam Pribyl in the Student Activities office with any questions.

DeLaSalle and 301 on Main have reached an agreement that will allow students to park in the event center’s parking lot during school days. The parking lot is located at 301 NE Main Street. Students must purchase a parking permit in order to park in the lot. Permits cost $110 and are sold in the Business Office.

These supplemental permits are specifically numbered and assigned to the buyer and are for the parking lot at 301 on Main ONLY. These permits are NOT valid in any of the DeLaSalle parking areas during the school day. Students MUST remove their vehicle from the 301 on Main parking lot by 5:00pm each day or risk being towed by building management.

DeLaSalle will provide shuttle bus service each day between the 301 on Main parking lot and the school. The morning shuttle will leave the parking lot at approximately 8:15am. The afternoon shuttle will leave from the front of DeLaSalle at 3:15pm.
