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

O God, Who by the preaching and teaching of Saint John Chrysostom
has given us an example of courage in the face of persecution and political corruption,
grant that we who honor his life and ministry may also imitate
his example of fidelity to wisdom, truth, justice, and beauty,
through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

An e-mail has been sent to all students inquiring about what activities you may be interested in. We are asking for all students to go into their e-mail and select any and all activities you may be interested in.

Act now, as the deadline to complete the form is Friday, September 21.

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.

Students, are you looking for ways to earn Christian Service hours? This resource provides some opportunities organized by DeLaSalle teachers and staff. You can check back periodically to see as service opportunities are added. Don’t forget, you can always contact Mr. Hallman if you need help finding other possible service opportunities.
