Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.
O Come, God of our Hope- We invite your Word into our hearts. May we be awake and alert to Your presence in our world, to Your hope for our world. Call us out of our apathy, out of our own selfish desires. Help us to live as people who strive to unite, rather than divide, to build up, rather than destroy, to spread light, rather than darkness. Make Your vision and hope for this world our own vision, and grant us the wisdom, courage and strength to work towards it. Amen
Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

Students may download iOS 12 over Christmas break. Make sure the iPad is backed up to iCloud before you update. Just a reminder the Tech Office recommends at least 3GB of free storage space on the iPads. If you do not have enough space to update, you should delete personal apps before any school provided apps that you may use.
Any student with a damaged iPad screen should turn it in the device by Thursday, December 20 so it can be sent out to be fixed over Christmas break.
That paper 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 paper 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 paper cup, please throw it away in the trash when you’re done with it. (Note: The clear plastic cups Starbucks and Caribou use for iced drinks are recyclable, just remove the straws and place in the recycling bin!)
Thanks and all the best during Finals Week!

You are invited to meet Hilary Abe from College Horizons. She will be visiting us on the island in January. College Horizons is an annual pre-college summer program for Native American, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian high school sophomores and juniors. Students work with college admissions officers, college counselors, essay specialists, and other educators in a six-day college admissions “crash course” focused on understanding the college admissions application process. Our rigorous workshops inspire students to find a college that will satisfy their needs for a fun, challenging and supportive environment. All are welcome! Come and learn about the program and how to apply. See attachment for more information.
