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

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself,
and God our Father, who loved us
and by his grace gave us
eternal encouragement and good hope,
encourage your hearts and strengthen you in
every good deed and word.

Thessalonians 2:16-17

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

Any DeLaSalle student is invited to participate on the committee that organizes Starry Night Prom by attending the mandatory meetings. The event is a prom for people in the greater community living with disabilities and will be held here at DeLaSalle on Saturday, May 6. Please sign up to participate using this link and mark your calendars for the first training session during lunches on Thursday.

The meeting on Thursday will take place in Room D104 during all lunches. Bring your lunch directly to the room at the beginning of your lunch period.

On Friday, students will meet with their academic mentor one last time this semester to discuss their academic progress.

Once again this Thursday, students will have the opportunity to volunteer at Sharing and Caring Hands. You need to be able to miss the last 25 minutes of your 8th period class AND email Miss Barry your intent. We will be back to school by 3:50pm. Please see Miss Barry with questions.

On Friday, the school community will gather for a Pepfest to recognize spring sports athletes.

The Child Learning Center at Mt. Olivet Lutheran Church (in Plymouth) is in need of volunteers to watch the kids from 5:00-8:00 PM on April 26th. They will provide pizza for dinner. The main job would be supervising and playing with the kids, serving them dinner, and putting a movie on for them to watch. Please contact Laura at, if you are interested.

Tickets are 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).
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.

For new students (and new students with older siblings), families will receive an email between April 1-15 with a link to access a tuition agreement. The agreement will reflect any financial aid grants and/or merit scholarships for the upcoming year. Families are asked to respond to our Business Office by following the instructions in the email and on the agreement, selecting a payment option, banking information and electronically signing your acceptance of your agreement. We request a response from all families by Saturday, April 21, as all payment plans for 2018-19 begin in May.  If you are a new family to DeLaSalle and do not receive an email by the 15th, please contact Ron Rice at 612-676-7601.

For returning students (without an additional child to be added to the tuition account), and as part of our continuous enrollment process, you will receive an email showing a summary of tuition and financial aid grants and/or merit scholarships. TADS will use the same banking or credit card information provided by families for their 2017-18 agreement. Additionally,TADS will use the same basic payment plan arrangement that families chose for the 2017-18 school year as the payment plan for the 2018-19 school year. If families need to change any banking or credit card information, their payment plan, or have any other questions, please contact Ron Rice at 612-676-7601 by April 21 to make those changes for the 2018-19 school year.

Tuition agreements will only be sent to families that have completed the registration and, if necessary, the financial aid application process for 2018-19.  Emails will not be sent to families that have not completed the required processes.
