Lord Jesus, send us your Spirit so we may believe in your care for our health and well-being.  Amen.

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!

Applications are now available for driver’s education classes, which will be offered in April, June, and late July/early August. Classes are limited to the first 25 students who register with a $200 down payment. Click here for class dates and applications.
