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

Dear Jesus,
Teach us to recognize that as we walk with each other, You are present. Teach us to welcome not only the strangers in our midst but the gifts they bring as well: the invitation to conversion, communion, and solidarity. This is the help you have sent: we are not alone. We are together on the journey, and for this we give you thanks. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

In today’s news…

This week, our school community is commemorating our annual Social Justice Week.  Our theme this year is Immigration: Seeing God Through Every Person. The activities this week will explore our role in society and our call to treat all people with dignity and respect. The activities and programs planned this week are based on the principles of Catholic Social Teaching, and additional resources about this topic can be found on the website of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

We all come from many different walks of life, but each of us brings a dignified story to this community that is to be appreciated and respected. During lunches on Tuesday, students and staff are invited to share part of their story by marking off the country of their ancestors’ origin. We will see that while we are many parts, we form one strong community.

Lasallian Ministry is hosting an after school movie on Wednesday at 3:15PM in Room D117. We will be watching the movie Under the Same Moon, and all are welcome to attend. Beverages and popcorn will be provided by Student Council.

Students who are not involved in an after school activity should leave campus immediately after school on Thursday because DeLaSalle is hosting the Tri-Metro Conference Speech tournament. The B and D buildings will be off limits, and students will not be able to use those buildings or locations including D104, D117, the library, and the Thies Lab, which will close immediately after school. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

Grace Neighborhood Nursery School is looking for 3 to 4 high school students to volunteer at their silent auction on March 9th from 6:00- 10:00pm. The event is held at St. Mary’s in South Minneapolis. If interested, please contact Julia at

Congratulations to the 65 DeLaSalle students who, as individuals or groups, advanced 34 History Day projects to the regional competition March 18 at Augsburg College. Students presented their projects at an open house last week. History Day is an annual project in the 11th grade Social Studies curriculum that lets juniors become expert historians by researching a topic of their choice around a national theme, which this year is “Triumph and Tragedy in History.” Continue reading
Students may purchase a wristband for the privilege to dress out of uniform on Wednesday. Wristbands will be sold during lunches on Tuesday and before school on Wednesday. Students must follow the out of uniform guidelines in the Student-Parent Handbook. DeLaSalle shares a portion of out of uniform wristband sales proceeds with Mwangaza College, our twin school in Kenya.

On Thursday and Friday, during the last 20 minutes of lunch time students who stop by the supervisors table to pick up a pass may come to the gym to play badminton. It will be limited to 20 students per lunch period.
