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

Lord, as we prepare for the coming of a new semester, make us ready, attentive and available to hear you. Thank You for the gift of being able to rise each day with the assurance that You walk through it with us. Thank You for the gifts of creativity and uniqueness, and the energy to put them to good use. May all that we are today, all that we try to do today, may all our encounters, reflections, even the frustrations and failings all be place in your hands. May the work we do and the way we do it, bring new hope, new life, and courage to all we come in contact with this semester. We thank you, Lord. Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

The second semester begins when classes resume today at 8:30am. DeLaSalle sent second semester schedules to students via their Islander Apps email on December 21 and again on January 4.

Please see the registrar, Shari Gallagher, with any requests to change a schedule. Students must follow their current schedule until they receive a new schedule.

The January meeting of the DeLaSalle Parent Association is a perennial favorite, when young Islander alumni join us for a special type of college planning panel for parents. We host our always informative panel discussion from the first-year student’s perspective. All parents are invited to join us and hear what De alums from the Class of 2018 would say helped with their college planning, decision and transition — and maybe a couple of things they wish they had known or done differently. Practical and understandable advice from one Islander to another is always helpful. Students are certainly welcome too. The meeting is Monday, January 7, starting at 6:30pm in the Schulze Lab (D104).

Learn about a career in Finance and Investment Banking after school at 3:30pm on Thursday, January 10 in the Thies Lab. Join the Investment Club in this conversation and take the opportunity to ask questions about college and career paths to this field.

DeLaSalle families may now begin to apply for financial aid for the 2019-20 school year through Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS). With the help of TADS’s financial analysis, DeLaSalle makes all financial aid decisions. Families who wish to be considered for financial aid for the 2019-20 school year must apply no later than Monday, February 25 (and preferably by Friday, February 15 in order to receive full consideration for many of the scholarship programs).

Permit sales continue for DeLaSalle students who wish to park their vehicle in the Nicollet Island Pavilion overflow lot during the school day. Students interested in buying the permit must meet with transportation director, Brooks Shelstad, before they can buy the $125 permit. The permit is valid for the remainder of the school year. Permits may be purchased via cash or check, payable to DeLaSalle High School.

Bozhoo and Háu to DeLaSalle families! Sophomores and juniors who are Native American, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian are invited to participate in College Horizons, an annual pre-college summer program that inspires students to find a college that will satisfy their needs for a fun, challenging and supportive environment. 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. Learn more when Hilary Abe from College Horizons visits DeLaSalle on Wednesday, January 9 for an evening information meeting. Please click here for more information and to register.
