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

God of Wisdom,
I thank you for the knowledge gained
and the learning experiences of the semester.
I come to you and ask you to illuminate my mind and heart.

Let your Holy Spirit be with me as I prepare for exams,
guiding my studies and giving me insight
so that I can perform to the best of my ability.

Grant me the strength to handle the pressure of these days,
the confidence to feel secure in my knowledge,
and the ability to keep a proper perspective through it all.

Help me to keep in mind what is truly important,
even as I focus my time and energy on these exams.

Finally, may I sense your peace
in knowing that I applied myself to the challenges of this day.

I ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

  2. Students may not wear a long-sleeved shirt under a short-sleeved uniform shirt.
  3. Coats and jackets, gloves, scarves, and any other outdoor attire is not permitted during the school day. This applies to DeLaSalle spirit and team apparel unless otherwise directed by staff. Items must be kept in the student’s locker.
  4. Pants, shirts, shorts and skirts should not be rolled at the cuff, sleeve or waist. Skirts should reach the top of the knee – no more than 2” above the knee.
  5. Shoes, including laces, and socks must be predominately black, brown, white, gray, or a mix of these colors. Additionally, students should be aware of food and drink expectations:
  6. Unless special permission is granted, food and drink may not be brought into classrooms; however, individual teachers may permit water in clear bottles in the classroom.

As the end of the semester approaches please take time to check the Lost and Found in the Dean’s Office B-209 for your missing personal items. All unclaimed items will be donated at the end of the semester.
