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

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God.
-Romans 12:2

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

In today’s news…

DeLaSalle students will be able to purchase a permit to park their vehicle in the Nicollet Island Pavilion overflow lot during the school day through a partnership with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, which owns and manages the lot. Students interested in buying the permit must attend an informational meeting during their lunch hour on Wednesday to learn more about this pilot program. The meeting will be held in D207 (the creative side of the Thies Lab). The permit will cost $125 and is valid for the remainder of the school year. Permit sales will begin following the lunchtime informational meetings.

We cordially invite you to attend the Christmas Concert as students in the Bel Canto and A Cappella Choirs, Chamber Orchestra, Concert Band, and Symphonic Band perform during one of DeLaSalle’s most popular events. Doors to the Florance Center will open at 6:30pm.

We know that the Christmas concert is a hit with families. As we anticipate a large turnout for this year’s concert, additional free parking is available in the Nicollet Island Pavilion overflow parking lot, located just south of the Hennepin Avenue bridge. There will be no charge to park in the lot that evening and a DeLaSalle Event Parking sign will indicate the entry to the lot. A free shuttle will transport guests between the parking lot and the school.

DeLaSalle will again broadcast a livestream of the event, which will be available here.

DeLaSalle will celebrate Christmas with a liturgy and program tomorrow, following the first class period. Scripture, prayer, and song (and a visit from Santa) will help the Islander community reflect on the birth of Christ. DeLaSalle President Barry Lieske will also provide his annual Christmas reflection.

Mr. Homan (Teacher-A210) and Miles Camery (Artistic Director) are creating a creative writing “zine.” A zine is a low-budget, do-it-yourself type of publication perfect for creative writing.

We are seeking poems, short stories, creative essays, drawings, etc. Submission due date: December 19th

Here’s an example of one poem that has already been submitted:

the world turns
every blink,
don’t blink
stop time
get lost and find love
explore what you do not know
dissect what you do
intertwine while
tearing back the layers

Join us for an end of the semester LEAP Christmas Party! This Friday, Dec. 14th in the Theis Lab during all lunches. Cookies, hot cocoa, movie and more! Hope to see you there!
