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

God in heaven hear my prayer, keep me in your loving care. Be my guide in all I do, bless all those who love me too. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

Our 21st annual Diversity Week is October 22-26. This week we will be celebrating and honoring the rich diversity that is present at DeLaSalle High School and in the world. It is our hope that the events and programs that are planned for the week will provide a springboard into a yearlong and life long appreciation of the beauty that exists in every aspect of diversity.

During the month of November, Christians around the world remember their loved ones who have died. For our All Saints Day liturgy, we are putting together an ofrenda table, a traditional Day of the Dead ritual, and invite all students, teachers, and staff to bring in a framed picture of a loved one who has passed away. After the liturgy, we will move the pictures to the 2nd floor trophy case in B building so we can remember our loved ones throughout November.

We invite you to bring a framed picture of your loved one with a post-it note on the back with your name and your loved one’s name to Mr. Rogers in the Learning Center (D-105) so we can remember our loved ones who have died. We prefer that your framed photo be wallet sized, 4×6, or 5×7.

All students need to clean out their athletic lockers (unless their fall sport is still in season for playoffs) by Friday, November 2. Students need to clean out their locker, even if they intend on participating in a winter sport.

On Monday, October 29, DeLaSalle hosts its first Open House for prospective students and their parents.  Many current students first visited De at an Open House in previous years.  Because we will need to set up for the Open House and clean the entire campus earlier in the afternoon, we ask that all students not involved in work service or a previously scheduled, after school activity please leave campus immediately after school on Monday.  The Library and D-104 will be closed at 3:15 p.m. on Monday.  The entire B building will be closed at 3:15 p.m. on Monday.  Thank you for understanding this request and making plans now to go home immediately after school on the 29th.
