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

Lord Jesus, please continue to seek and rescue us whenever we are lost. Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

On today’s calendar…



In today’s news…

Thank you for helping to share the good news about DeLaSalle with your family and friends this Christmas season. What an exciting time for De! We invite prospective students and their families to join us at our winter Open House to learn more about DeLaSalle’s mission and vision and hear from teachers in each department about our college preparatory curriculum. You can also learn about our Catholic, Lasallian heritage, student activities, financial aid, and more.

On Wednesday, January 16, DeLaSalle hosts its first Open House for prospective students and their parents.  Many current students first visited De at an Open House in previous years.  Because we will need to set up for the Open House and clean the entire campus earlier in the afternoon, we ask that all students not involved in work service or a previously scheduled, after school activity please leave campus immediately after school on Wednesday.  The Library, D-104, and the entire B building will be closed at 3:15 p.m on Wednesday. Thank you for understanding this request and making plans now to go home immediately after school on the 16th.

DeLaSalle will hold an online learning day on Thursday, January 17 for students as faculty and staff also participate in professional development. Students will not report to school for classes, but will complete their assignments and coursework online. Faculty will publish their class assignments by 9:00am and will be available at times throughout the day to remotely work with students.

The ENTIRE membership of our chapter of National Honor Society will meet a few times this semester, and our first meeting is Wednesday, January 16. To accommodate our members’ schedules, the officers and moderators will be conducting several meeting times throughout the day.

Every member must attend one of the following meeting times:

  • 7:45-8:15 a.m., Theis Creative
  • All lunch periods, Theis Creative
  • 3:15-3:45 p.m. , Room B211

A reminder that students in Dr. Zimmerman’s Life Skills group will meet during all lunches today in Ms. Megan’s room (B110).

DeLaSalle Theatre is looking to add a few more cast members to the spring musical, Newsies!

Come on out January 24th, at 3pm in room D117. We will dance, sing and read from provided sides. We’re looking to fill 5 roles, 3 guys and 2 gals. 2 roles are speaking roles only, no signing or dancing required. All students, regardless of experience and skill levels, are encouraged to audition.

If you have questions, please email Mr. Buffington at
