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

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful and kindle in them the fire of Your love. Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

On today’s calendar…



In today’s news…

Our Christmas Basket Drive has officially begun! This year we will be adding gifts for homeless youth through Sharing and Caring Hands and the YMCA Youth Intervention Services. Last year the students and staff brought in over $4,000 and we hope to beat that number this year.

We invite students and staff to contribute in 9th and 10th grade Theology Classes and 11th and 12th grade English Classes. Money collection is daily and begins today and runs through Friday, November 30. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Anyone who would like to go Christmas Shopping for our adoptive families as part of our Christmas Basket Drive, please sign up here you must be logged into your google apps account.
We will shop after school on Friday, November 30 from 3:15-5:30 p.m. Christian Service hours WILL NOT be awarded for this event.

Due to the recent nationwide recall on romaine lettuce, the DeLaSalle Cafe will not sell romaine lettuce salads until further notice.

Boys’ swimming and diving start today – with tryouts Monday-Friday from 4:00-6:00pm at the swimming pool at St. Anthony.

For the most updated version of tryouts and practices, please see the DeLaSalle Athletic Website.

Students will meet with their academic mentor following first period to discuss how they are doing in their classes as we approach the final weeks of the first semester.

Students may purchase a wristband for the privilege to dress out of uniform. Wristbands will be sold during lunches before the out of uniform day and before school that morning. Students must follow the out of uniform guidelines in the Student-Parent Handbook.

Each season, the Student Activities office asks DeLaSalle families to take about five minutes and provide feedback for our athletic and activity programs. This valuable information will help administrators, coaches, and moderators continue to create excellent programming and positive experiences for all. Click here for the survey.

All students and staff are invited to join Lasallian Ministry for Mass every Tuesday at 3:15pm in the chapel in Christian Brothers Hall, located near the Lasallian Ministry office.

End your day on a strong note by taking time to reflect and pray with your fellow community members.
