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

God, steer my hand, direct my words, guide my thoughts in everything I think and say and do. Amen

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

 The GREEN Team is seeking environmental superstars (or just average Janes and Joes like the rest of us) to ​help make the world a more sustainable and vibrant place to live​. If you like working with others to eliminate hunger, protect and promote pollinators, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, address environmental racism, and/or​ advocate for clean energy policies th​e​n look no further!

Our first meeting will be Tuesday at 3:10PM in room B311 (and, if you miss that meeting, feel free to join us on any other Tuesday afternoon right after school in Mr. Banas’ room).

If you’re still not sure after all of that – we’re also a great option for those who enjoy occasional afternoon snacks, who are interested in field trips to cool places like aquaponics labs and bee labs, and/or who have great ideas on projects to make our school an even more fantastic place to be – now and in the future.  Bring your ideas and energy to GREEN Team!​
