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

Lord, grant us simplicity of faith
and a generosity of service
that gives without counting cost.
A life overflowing with Grace
poured out from the One
who gave everything,
that we might show
the power of love
to a broken world,
and share the truth
from a living Word.
Lord, grant us simplicity of faith,
and a yearning to share it. Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

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 earlier received a course request worksheet that can help them plan their courses for next year. Watch a video here that explains how to use the course request worksheet.

We Are NOT…for sale, to be used, to be abused, to be controlled…

We are..Strong, independent, loved, children of God.

Our Social Justice Awareness Week this year will focus on the epidemic of Human Trafficking both locally and globally.  Many events and activities are planned for the week, which will take place starting Monday, February 26 through Friday, March 2. On Monday we will have a BLUE out at the girl’s basketball games.  Blue is the color for Human Trafficking awareness. The cheer team and student council are spearheading a few activities including a 50/50 raffle for Breaking Free. Make sure you are there for halftime and bring your friends and family.

On Monday, February 26 we kick off the week with a special assembly that includes prayer, short talks, music and a keynote address by Joy Friedman.  Joy is a Consulter, Motivational Speaker & Trainer on the topic of Human Trafficking.  Entering the “Life” at 15, she was able to break free when she was 37 and will share what makes teens vulnerable to trafficking and what they can do for self and others. Throughout the week we will have special classroom workshops and conclude the week with a celebratory event in the gym. Stay tuned.

Several staff members have agreed to have their beards shaved at the closing assembly on Friday if we as a school collectively raise $2,500 for Breaking Free.  Collections will take place during lunch periods Monday through Thursday. The collection will end at the end of 6th period on Thursday.  If we reach our goal be prepared to join in cheering on Bro. Ryan, Mr. Capecchi, Mr. Homan, Mr. Marrin, Mr. Newman, Mr. Pribyl and Mr. Wessman-Conroy as they go beard free for Breaking Free.

All of us at DeLaSalle appreciate the sacrifice that you make to send your children sons and daughters to our school. We know we must be good stewards.
