Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.
Lord, help me to rest awhile in the cooling shade of your presence. Slow down my restless heart and fill me with gentle compassion for all your people. Amen.
Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

The back-to-school email also includes important information about required school orientations for new and returning students. Families of returning students may sign up for an orientation on either Wednesday, August 9 or Wednesday, August 16. New Student Orientation for all ninth grade and new transfer students will be held on Thursday, August 17and new families are invited back to DeLaSalle for New Family Orientation the evening of August 17.
Please note: Families who choose the $50 Annual Protection Plan option for their child’s iPad will find the charge reflected on their TADS account to be paid within the upcoming month. (Most returning families made this choice when re-enrolling in February; families of new students are making that choice this month). Families who have already paid their tuition will have an additional invoice added to their account to make this payment. Families who choose the $405 Deposit Protection Plan option will need to bring in a check when their student picks up their iPad in August.
Before a student can participate in a sport, they must have a “current” physical submitted by August 1 (“current” is defined as signed by a licensed physician within the last three years.)

Students and parents/guardians are strongly encouraged to attend the Student Activities eligibility / fall athletic coaches meeting on Wednesday, August 9 at 6:30pm, following school orientation. The meeting will cover important DeLaSalle and state high school league eligibility policies. Coaches of fall athletic programs will hold team meetings after.
