October 18, 4:00-8:00pm

October 19, 11:00am-7:00pm

Parent-Student-Teacher conferences allow parents, students, and teachers an opportunity to discuss a student’s academic progress near the mid-point in the semester. As students and parents can benefit by hearing the same commendations and recommendations from teachers, we strongly suggest students and parents attend conferences and participate in these conversations together.

Conferences are scheduled for Wednesday, October 18 from 4:00-8:00pm and on Thursday, October 19 from 11:00am-7:00pm. You do not need an appointment to hold a conference with a teacher. Instead, you can meet with your child’s teachers at your own pace and whenever they are available. Please respect that teachers have many parents who wish to meet with them and may limit your conference to 10-15 minutes.

Students will be dismissed on October 18 at 1:56pm and afternoon transportation routes will leave from DeLaSalle that day at 2:10pm. There are no classes on October 19 and 20. A reminder that there are also no classes on Monday, October 23 as DeLaSalle staff join colleagues from other Lasallian high schools in the Twin Cities (Benilde-St. Margaret’s, Cretin-Derham Hall, Holy Family, and Totino-Grace) for professional development with Dr. Marcia Chatelain, associate professor of history and African American studies at Georgetown University, who will speak about race and social justice.

Please note there is a home football game on Wednesday at 7:00pm. Free overflow parking is available in the Nicollet Island Pavilion overflow parking lot (on the south side of the Hennepin Avenue bridge). A shuttle will be available from the Nicollet Island Pavilion overflow parking lot, starting at 6:00pm.
