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

O God, who chose Saint John Baptist de la Salle to educate young Christians, raise up, we pray, teachers in your Church ready to devote themselves wholeheartedly to the human and Christian formation of the young. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

In today’s news…

All seniors will meet with Mr. Benson during the first 20 minutes of their lunch period today. The meeting will cover end of year events and expectations and will take place in D117. Students should report immediately to the meeting and will have enough time after to eat their lunch.

Each month, a group of DeLaSalle parents and family members gather on campus to lift up our community in prayer. The Parents in Prayer group will meet for the last time this school year today, from 12:00-1:00pm in the creative side of the Thies Lab (D207). All parents, family members, friends, and alumni are welcome to participate. 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.

Elections for the 2019-20 Student Council Executive Board will happen Friday. Students will vote in their Social Studies classes; ninth graders who do not have Social Studies this semester will vote in their Phy Ed class. The Executive Board includes the Student Council President and Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Public Relations Officer.

Candidates had the opportunity to record a short video introducing themselves to you and Student Council encourages you to watch the videos before casting your vote. There is no video for President/Vice President as there is only one set of candidates on the ballot in that race.

This summer DeLaSalle will refresh the devices for its IslePad one-to-one program with the purchase of new iPads.  Based on feedback from students and faculty, the new devices will include a keyboard with a rugged case. As part of this transition, DeLaSalle is offering students the opportunity to purchase their current iPad Air for $100.00 from May 3rd through May 17th.  This purchase price includes the case and charger that is currently assigned to the student. Please find the iPad Purchase Form here.

Devices that are not purchased will need to be returned on the last day of classes. Charges will be incurred for any damage to the device or charger.

DeLaSalle will celebrate seniors and their postsecondary plans on National College Decision Day Wednesday, May 1. Seniors may wear a top representing their college or postsecondary decisions with the school uniform pant, shorts, or skirt. During lunches Wednesday, seniors may sign a Class of 2019 poster and enter a raffle to win a prize!

Starry Night Prom, a prom for people with disabilities and the largest student service project at DeLaSalle, will take place at the school the evening of Saturday, May 4. Students have been training and preparing for weeks for the 19th annual event. Parent chaperones are still needed to volunteer for full or half shifts between 5:30-10:00pm. Please contact Nicole Stecklein at 612-676-7608 if you can help. A special thank you to all who participated in a fundraiser for the event April 23 at the Chipotle on East Hennepin Avenue by DeLaSalle. The restaurant donated more than $400 to the event, or a third of the sales it generated from dinner that evening.

The Student Activities office invites students and families who participate in co-curricular and extracurricular activities at DeLaSalle to share their feedback via a program evaluation. Some of you may have already taken the survey this year. If you would be so kind to complete it once more, that would be greatly appreciated. This way we can make sure we have gathered all the necessary information in order to continue to provide quality activity programs at DeLaSalle.

Atlatl Society meets after school from 3:15 to 4:15, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Have fun and work on your primitive survival skills!
