Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen
Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

As a school, we throw away over 400 metal spoons, 250 metal forks, and 75 plastic plates each year. That adds up to $550.00 worth of supplies annually, or $2,200.00 over four years. Those are costs that need to be covered by tuition or lunchroom fees. Furthermore, discarding these items in any of the waste bins poses problems for our waste-handling partners and our environment. So, save all of us some money and save the environment – place your reusable silverware, plates, and trays in the appropriate bins. And if you see silverware, plates, or trays in the waste bins, please reach in and relocate them to their proper bins, or notify a staff person to help.

“There is a new criminal mastermind in London during the summer of 1888, but the Queen isn’t worried. Her Majesty and the people of London rest easy because Sherlock Holmes is on the case. But don’t be fooled, he’s NOT the greatest detective. In fact, he can barely spell. It’s not Dr. Watson, either. He’s not much better. What Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson do have is a young housekeeper. Her name is Ms. Elizabeth Hudson, The World’s Greatest Detective.” Click here to purchase reserved tickets for a show.
