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

God, we pray in thanksgiving for the mothers in our lives. We are grateful for the many sacrifices they made and make on our behalf. We pray that you bless and honor them each day. Amen

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

DeLaSalle invites students enrolled in the Class of 2022 and their parents to join us for a Welcome Party on Saturday, May 12. Students will dance to a DJ, participate in Mardi Gras games and group activities where they will meet new kids, or just enjoy the atmosphere of your new school. Admission is free – and we’ll have pizza and pop for everybody. By the end of the night, you’ll have a lot of new friends! Parents, we don’t want you to miss out on the fun either. While your child is having fun meeting his or her new classmates, you can meet other parents during the “Meet and Greet with Treats” for parents of the Class of 2022. Current parents and some graduating seniors will serve as hosts and share good conversation about DeLaSalle from a parent’s or student’s view. This event is hosted by the DeLaSalle Parent Association and has been extremely valuable for new parents to DeLaSalle. Please watch your email inbox for a party invitation and more details.
