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

Hope believes that the best is yet to come.

It is HE Whom we proclaim.

To all ninth grade and new families to DeLaSalle for the 2017-18 school year:  You will see something different on your December TADS invoice.  When you paid a registration fee last spring or summer, your registration fee was not added to your tuition agreement for the 2017-18 school year.  This charge as well as payment are being added to your current tuition agreement so at tax return time you will have an accurate account of tuition paid to DeLaSalle in the calendar year of 2017.  One of the features in TADS is you can log in and download a report for tuition paid in a specific school year.  If you have any questions, please contact Ron Rice at 612-676-7601 or at ron.rice@delasalle.com.
