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

Lord, I trust in Your unfailing love, in Your promises. I give this day and all that it holds to You. May I walk in Your goodness, knowing Your gentle hand will guide me, and keep me.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

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.

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.

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.
