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

O Lord, grant us the spirit of fortitude, so that guided by the example of the martyr St. Sebastian, we may learn to bear witness to the Christian Faith and patiently support the sufferings of life. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

On today’s calendar…



In today’s news…

DeLaSalle will be closed and there are no classes in observance of the Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday on Monday, January 21. Islanders will celebrate the life and legacy of Reverend King with an all-school prayer service on the morning of Tuesday, January 22.

On Wednesday, January 23, students may purchase a wristband for the privilege to dress out of uniform. Wristbands will be sold during lunches before the out of uniform day and before school that morning. Students must follow the out of uniform guidelines in the Student-Parent Handbook.
