Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.
Spring is a metaphor for change. Some changes we eagerly await, and some we abhor. Some changes we plan and others arrive uninvited. To all these changes we ask the gift of Your perspective beckoning us to expectation, hope, and rebirth.
May the sunlight and the rain be reminders that You are at work renewing the earth. As a God of renewal, You are ever at work in our lives, too.
Open our eyes and lives to the needed changes in our lives this Spring. Awaken us to new life and perspective, for we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

In today’s news…
DeLaSalle charges a fee for each AP exam that is used to offset the cost imposed by the College Board. This year, the charge is $46 per test. Families who qualify for free and reduced lunch benefits will not be charged. Like last year, DeLaSalle will collect this charge through each family’s TADS account. Students who will take one or two AP exams will have the charges added to the April invoice; those who will take three or more exams will have the charges added to the April and May invoices (splitting the total cost evenly). This change will automate the process and split up the cost for families. If you have questions on the charges, or need to make separate arrangements, please call Ron Rice in the Business Office at 612.676.7601
*Because tuition contracts end in April for the 2017-18 school year, the AP exam fee will be added to the 2018-19 tuition charge for non-seniors, and will be the only charge on the tuition account in May for seniors who take three or more exams.
**For those that don’t have a tuition payment due in April, DeLaSalle will add an April invoice to your TADS account.
MACRS will be holding its first meeting of the 2018 season on Wednesday, during 4th, 5th, and 6th lunches. This season, we will be reading The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. Meetings will be held on Thursdays during lunch (you may eat during the game). This season’s moderators include Mr. Zavitz, Mr. Casey, Mr. Banas, and Mr. Homan. All interested boys should sign up on the Activities Office sign-up sheet or see Mr. Zavitz in B301.
Competitors receive a free book and a pizza party at the end of the season in May. For those already signed up, more information will follow by email later this week.
