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

From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!

(Traditional Scottish prayer)

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

On today’s calendar…


All college visits take place in the Guidance office B102, unless otherwise noted. In order to meet with a college rep, you must register for the visit through your Naviance account and notify your teacher at least one day before the visit. You may show your teacher your iPad with the registration on Naviance as your pass. Remember, you are responsible for any work you miss during your visit with the college rep.  The Guidance office will give students passes back to class if the visit does not take the whole period.

IT’S OFFICIAL: We have Respect Life Month in October of each year. “The Church,” Pope Benedict said, “is called to proclaim the gift of life, to serve life, and to promote a culture of life.” So we remember all forms and all ages of life that God has given us.

RESPECT LIFE MONTH: FOR THE BABIES!  Last call for pacifiers, rattles, PJs, and especially formula (Similac). Show you care by making a donation of at least one item in our Drive for the Little Ones. Bring items to the Atrium all month.

DeLaSalle is excited to hold its second annual De Day of Giving on Thursday, November 2. We invite you to consider joining us in lifting up our great community and ensuring that all students continue to have the opportunity to experience an excellent education at DeLaSalle. Last year, we raised $112,000 in one day. This year, our goal is to again raise $100,000. Based on the generosity and continuity of our donors, we believe this goal is attainable.

All are welcome to attend our LEAP meeting this week. We will have a special guest speaker who works for Avenues for Homeless Youth, an agency that provides shelter and assistance for homeless teens.
