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

Heavenly Father, thank you for making each of us unique, created in every vast facet of your image. Thank you for all of the things we can learn from each other, our similarities and our differences. Allow us to see the special talents in everyone around us, especially those hidden behind behaviors we don’t understand or diagnoses which make us apprehensive. Help us to move beyond stereotypes and preconceived notions to nurture the true spirit of all in our midst. Provide us with the resources needed to discover how we can each give back to you and our community, in our own creative and extraordinary ways. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

Social Justice Awareness Week is organized by Lasallian MInistry. Our focus for the week is on Catholic Social Teachings. We have many informative and thought provoking activities in store for the DeLaSalle Community this week. Please check out the signs around the building for more information and get involved.

  • Author Jonathan Friesen is our keynote for the week and will be speaking today in our assembly after 1st hour. He will also have copies of all of his books that will be sold during lunch periods today for $10 (cash or check made payable to DeLaSalle) Click here for a list of his books. Mr. Friesen will also be speaking to all 12th grade students in English classes.
  • Our collection for the Walk for a Cure for Juvenile Arthritis is happening through Friday in your first period classes.  Everyone who donates at least one dollar will have their name posted on a ribbon and be eligible for some prizes during lunches on Friday.

Students are invited to apply now for one of these upcoming Lasallian Ministry-sponsored service immersion opportunities. Click the link to see more about and apply for the experience:

Come to Game Day during lunches today in Lasallian Ministry! Lasallian Ministry DOES NOT meet this week due to Social Justice Week.

We will meet today to take on the Forbidden Island! In this cooperative game, players work together to beat the game rather than trying to defeat the other players. Watch Wil Wheaton’s TableTop episode for Forbidden Island for a quick rules intro. New players are always welcome. See Mr. Newman for more information.

Calling all chess players and wannabe chess players: Do you know that Chess Club takes place every Tuesday in A208? Next week, Tuesday, February 21, is special as we will begin a chess tournament that day. All skill levels and grade levels are welcome to come and participate! Show us how good you are! (Or, come and improve your skills.) Questions? See Ms. Kocourek

Beginning this week, the boys’ and girls’ locker rooms will be switching to new hours. The locker rooms will remain open to students from 5:20-8:25am and from 3:00-4:00pm. Please plan accordingly when using the athletic locker room. If you need to enter the locker room outside of the hours listed please see Mr. Lemon, Ms. Gillund or your coach for access.

The DeLaSalle Alumni Association Legacy/Farrell Scholarship is offered to juniors who have had at least one relative graduate from DeLaSalle. If you are granted the scholarship, it will be credited toward your tuition bill during your senior year at De! The deadline to apply is 4:00pm tomorrow. All juniors have received a link to the scholarship in their Islander Student Apps e-mail account. If you have any questions, please contact Alumni Relations Coordinator, Jessica Luckett.

Thanks to all who brought a canned good to the Winterfest dance. Thanks to your contributions, DeLaSalle was able to donate 73 pounds of food!
