Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.
Grant me this day, O God, the heart of a child,
Pure and transparent as a spring;
A simple heart, which never harbors sorrows;
A heart glorious in self-giving,
tender in compassion;
A heart faithful and generous,
which will never forget any good
or bear a grudge for any evil. Amen
Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

In today’s news…
DeLaSalle this year has implemented a continuous enrollment model, which other schools are also now doing. Continuous Enrollment streamlines the re-enrollment process and eliminates the need for sending a repetitive re-registration form and a new tuition agreement to families each year. With almost all students re-enrolling at DeLaSalle year over year, the process of completing multiple forms ends up being unnecessary. Those few families that may be considering withdrawing their child for 2018-19 are encouraged to contact Vice President for Enrollment, Mike O’Keefe, at 612-676-7679. Mike manages the process, but quite often, individual concerns for a particular student or family are addressed with enough advance notice.
Students received an email with a link to register for courses as well as a course request worksheet via email that will help them identify which required courses they must take and what elective courses are available. Watch a video here that explains how to use the course request worksheet.
Students and parents may consult the 2018-19 curriculum guide here to view graduation requirements and course descriptions by academic department. We’re excited to announce several new courses, including two offerings in AP computer programming, an Honors Theology course, a science course taught in collaboration with a Lasallian high school in Spain, and Explore-Impact, a practicum opportunity for college-bound seniors. Students are encouraged to discuss course requests with their parents, college adviser, and academic mentor. Academic mentor meetings are scheduled for Friday, February 16.
