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…

Parent-Student-Teacher conferences allow parents, students, and teachers an opportunity to discuss a student’s academic progress. As students and parents can benefit by hearing the same commendations and recommendations from teachers, we strongly suggest students and parents attend conferences and participate in these conversations together. Please note: Classes on March 8 will dismiss at 12:52pm and afternoon transportation routes will leave DeLaSalle at 1:15pm. There are no classes on March 9.

Good luck to the #2 seed DeLaSalle girls’ basketball team, as they face top-seeded Mahtomedi in the section final on Thursday at 7pm. The winner goes to the state tournament next week. The game is at East Ridge High School and DeLaSalle will operate a fan bus to and from the game. To sign up for the bus, click here. You must sign up by 1:00pm Today.

Great! Now that we have your attention… Student Council will be hosting Town Hall meetings during lunch periods on Tuesday, March 13th in Ms. Megan’s art room (B110)! Come to hear about Student Council’s agenda, voice your thoughts and feelings about Student Council and what they should do, and to get a FREE COOKIE AND TO CUT IN FRONT OF THE LUNCH LINE.

Here at DeLaSalle, we typically produce 1/4lb of waste per student each day just in the lunchroom. And, on average, Americans produce over 4lbs of trash each day overall (that is 1,460 lbs of trash per year per person). Much of that waste can be diverted from incinerators and landfills (both of which pose environmental challenges to a safe, healthy, and sustainable world). Reusing, recycling, and composting is key.

  • Reuse – water bottles, silverware, plates, and trays.
  • Recycle – milk cartons, plastic and glass bottles, juice and cereal cartons, and cardboard boxes.
  • Compost – all food waste, used napkins, paper plates, compostable forks and spoons, and pizza boxes. DeLaSalle also uses compostable salad containers and dressing containers. Some of our clear cups are also compostable. Check the bottom of items to see if it says “compostable.”

Thank you for making our world a more sustainable, just, and vibrant place! Green planets need students going green!
