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

“We must dig deeply in Christ. He is like a rich mine with many pockets containing treasures: however deep we dig we will never find their end or their limit. Indeed, in every pocket new seams of fresh riches are discovered on all sides.”

-St. John of the Cross

Through the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the intercession of Saint John, may we treasure the gifts of life which God have given us! Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

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

Come play Kin-ball 4 square in the LL Gray Gym the last 20 minutes of lunch. Stop by the supervisors table to pick up a pass. Limited to 36 people.

Hats off to all who participated in the DeLaSalle Christmas Concert on Wednesday night. The school livestreamed the performance and you can now watch the recorded version of it here.

That cup from Starbucks, Caribou, or the DeLaSalle cafeteria you’re left with after your morning coffee or hot chocolate? It needs to go in the trash.

The vast majority of coffee cups sold in the United States contain a thin plastic lining that keeps your drink warm and holds the cup together while you enjoy your beverage. Unfortunately, it cannot be recycled or composted, and must be thrown away when you’re done with it.

So, go GREEN by using a reusable cup or thermos for your warm drinks. Encourage your coffee, tea, and hot chocolate provider to invest in compostable cups. If you do use a non-compostable disposable cup, please throw it away in the trash when you’re done with it.

Thanks and all the best during Finals Week!
The GREEN Team

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

Science club will not meet until after winter break!

The DeLaSalle Parents in Prayer group will spend the lunch hour on Monday offering up prayers for the DeLaSalle community. The group will meet from 12:00-1:00pm in D207, the creative side of the Thies Lab. The group of De parents and family members gathers on campus once a month to lift up our community in prayer. All parents, family members, friends, and alumni are welcome to participate. We hope students, staff, families and friends at DeLaSalle will feel encouraged by the knowledge that people care about them, are excited for them and are PRAYING FOR THEM! You may submit prayer requests, which may remain anonymous, to prayer boxes located in the main office, Lasallian Ministry, or Theology classrooms.

Thank you to those who brought a photograph of their loved ones from home to contribute to our Ofrenda table. If you have not picked up your photo yet, please see Mr. Rogers in the Learning Center (D-105). Thank you!
