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

Lord, may Saint Angela Merici commend us to Your mercy;
may her charity and wisdom help us
to be faithful to Your teaching
and to follow it in our lives.
We ask this in Jesus’ name.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

On today’s calendar…

Hey Freshman! Kickoff Winterfest Week with an after school activity that involves service and fun! We will make sandwiches for people living at Sharing and Caring Hands. We will play games and eat pizza afterwards. The fun begins Monday, January 28 at 3:30 in the Schulze Learning Lab, D104. Bring your friends and hang out with the Islander Welcome Crew members, Mr. Sczepanski, Ms. Barry, Mr. Lemon and Ms. Gillund. We’ll be done around 6:00pm.

Students should update their iPads to the newest version of iOS, 12.1.3. This must be done at home, the update is blocked at school. If the student iPad does not have enough storage to download the update, students should delete personal apps/photos to make sufficient room for the update.

DeLaSalle students and families can still apply for free and reduced lunch benefits, even though the federal government is partially shut down. Please complete and return this Application for Educational Benefits to Pam Beckman in the DeLaSalle Cafe. La forma es disponible aqui en espanol.

We hope students, staff, families and friends at DeLaSalle will feel encouraged by the knowledge that people care about them, are excited for them and are PRAYING FOR THEM! You may submit prayer requests, which may remain anonymous, to prayer boxes located in the main office, Lasallian Ministry, or Theology classrooms.
