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

For all those who have fallen victim to hatred and inhumanity, for those loved ones who are left behind to mourn, for the souls of those whose hearts are cold.
Help us bring Your peace to times of conflict and violence; in our homes, our communities, our nation and our world.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

Students can learn more about post secondary options when representatives from dozens of colleges and universities hold on-campus visits at DeLaSalle. Visits are typically held in the Guidance office (B102) and most last the whole class period. You can find which schools are visiting in both the source and on the “College Visits, College Fairs and Events” calendar, available on the School Calendar webpage. Students may sign up for visits in Naviance and must notify their teacher at least one day before the visit by showing the teacher your registration in Naviance. Students are responsible for any work they miss during the college rep visit. The Guidance office will give students passes back to class if the visit does not take the whole period.
