You will all recall the remarkable performance by Bernard Woma and the Saakumu Dance Troupe from Ghana on March 2nd. Bernard had been suffering with cancer but did not share that with us. We were informed on Friday that he passed away. Please keep Bernard, the dance troupe and all of his friends and family in your prayers. We were so blessed by his presence and that of his group. What an awesome experience for everyone in the school to dance together on the gym floor. May his soul rest in peace.

DeLaSalle will celebrate seniors and their postsecondary plans on National College Decision Day. On this day, seniors may be out of uniform if they are wearing apparel representing their college or postsecondary decisions.
