Wednesday, September 11, 2019
Dear God, we remember before you today those whose lives were lost in the catastrophic events of September 11, 2001, and for all those whom we love but no longer see. We give thanks to you for the selfless courage of those brave souls who ran into burning buildings and who labored in the rubble; may their courage be to us a witness of what is possible when we are guided by love and dedication to our fellow human beings. We also remember and pray for those who died on this day and for their grieving families and communities. We ask this in your name, Amen.
Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

DeLaSalle’s college counselors will visit classrooms this week to meet with seniors and share information on what they should be doing now as part of their college and career planning. This information will help 12th grade students know what steps to take no matter where they are in the post-high school planning process. This is an individual process as unique as each child in the Class of 2020. All seniors should make an appointment with their college advisor to get personalized advice and continue moving forward with this process.
Get prepared with this presentation for students and parents/guardians on the many options for paying for college. Take away tools for navigating the new FAFSA; applying to colleges, researching scholarships, grants and loan options; all in a way that makes sense for your family.
