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

God who dispels all darkness,
Come to be with us, in each one of our situations;
Come to live among us, live with us and in us;
Come to fill the distance that divides and separates us;
Come to reconcile us with You and with one another.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

There will be no loaner iPads available on Friday, December 21.

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.

Take a study break with Lasallian Ministry! Join us Wednesday, Thursday and Friday during lunch periods (4th, 5th and 6th hour) for “Just Dance” and a chance to unwind after finals. Check in with lunch room supervisors before heading over. Hope to see you there!

Students that are not in after school activities should plan on heading home after final assessments Wednesday-Friday. Students in after school activities should report directly to the library. After school supervisors will have limited hours on these days and there may be times when the school will be closing early. Please plan ahead!

All lost and found items will be donated over the Christmas break. If you are missing anything please come to the Deans’ Office before or after school to check the lost and found. You can also email the deans at to see if your lost item is there.

Many outside groups use DeLaSalle during the extended Christmas break. Please make sure you are securing your locker and personal items with your lock before leaving school on Friday, December, 21.

That plastic-lined paper Coffee Cup? Toss it in the Trash, Please!

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!
The GREEN Team
