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

Jesus, in these last few days leading up to Easter, as I recall your passion and death, let me remember that, above all, I am called to feed your sheep. You have given me a model of how to live; may I strive to be all that you created me for, spreading the love of God and the truth of our Catholic faith wherever I am able. You are the way, the truth, and the life. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

In today’s news…

We will gather for a Holy Thursday prayer service after first hour today in the Florance Center. Please come prepared with an open heart and mind as we hear students and staff reflect on this season of Lent and our journey into Easter.

Want to work on your cardio a bit? Join Bro Ryan on his morning jog around the island. Thursday’s at 7:15am. Wear weather appropriate clothes, and meet by the buses on Grove Street starting this Thursday. ALL are welcome, Students, Faculty, Staff. Hope to see you there this week!

The yearbook committee is looking for photos of students at Super Bowl events around the cities. Please submit your photos to yearbook@delasalle.com.
Do you have awesome plans for break? The Broadcast Journalism class is looking for short video clips of students enjoying Spring Break. Whether you are going on vacation or relaxing at home or exploring the Twin Cities, we want your stories! Submit a short clip (between 10 and 30 seconds) by following the instructions in this form. Please also make sure your videos are taken horizontally. Winners will be featured in the Weekly De.
Do you have Boxtops for education stacking up at your house? Bring them to Brother Ryan! Each Semester Brother Ryan collects boxtops to donate to San Miguel Middle School in the Back of the Yards neighborhood of Chicago. San Miguel is a sister school of DeLaSalle that is not afforded the same resources as DeLaSalle. Box Tops help to bridge that gap.

Tickets are now on sale for the April 28 Junior/Senior Prom. The theme for this year’s Prom is “Big Lights, Big City-Hollywood” and you can gain “red carpet” access for $75 before April 18. Ticket sales close at 11:59pm on April 25. You can also purchase tickets from Ms. Smith in the Business Office with cash or check payment (please make checks payable to DeLaSalle High School, with “Prom” listed in the check memo).

DLS students, who are interested in participating in Starry Night Prom, please sign up here. Mandatory meetings will begin after spring break and the prom is on Saturday, May 5th.

DeLaSalle families have the chance this spring to host an exchange student from a Catholic school in Argentina. The 16- and 17-year-old students attend Colegia Santo Domingo en la Sierra, a bilingual Catholic school about three hours from Buenos Aires, and will be in the Twin Cities from April 15-June 3. Hosting an exchange student gives your family a unique opportunity to build a special connection, explore new customs, and share American culture. If you are interested in hosting, please email Brad Casey, Global Advantage Program coordinator.

DeLaSalle will email 2018-19 tuition agreements between April 1-15. The agreements will reflect any financial aid grants and/or merit scholarships a student may receive next year. All parents and guardians are asked to respond to our Business Office by following the instructions on the agreement, selecting a payment option, and electronically signing your acceptance. We request a response from all families by Saturday, April 21, as all payment plans for 2018-19 begin in May.

Returning Families: Please Respond to the Transportation Requests & iPad Insurance Plan for 2018-19. Thank you to the many DeLaSalle families who have completed the final step in the continuing enrollment for 2018-19 by returning transportation requests and selecting an iPad insurance plan for next year. Thank you for promptly responding to that request once you receive it.

DeLaSalle students in Advanced Placement (AP) classes will take AP exams in May. The exam offers students the opportunity to earn college credit prior to stepping on a college campus. Remember to verify that classes are accepted during the college enrollment process.

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.
