O God, who raised up Saint John of Capistrano to comfort your faithful people in tribulation, place us, we pray, under your safe protection and keep your Church in everlasting peace. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

During the month of November, Christians around the world remember their loved ones who have died.

For our All Saints Day liturgy, we are putting together an ofrenda table, a traditional Day of the Dead ritual, and invite all students, teachers, and staff to bring in a framed picture of a loved one who has passed away. After the liturgy, we will move the pictures to the 2nd floor trophy case in B building so we can remember our loved ones throughout November. We invite you to bring a framed picture of your loved one with a post-it note on the back with your name and your loved one’s name to Mr. Rogers in Room B215 or in the Lasallian Ministry office so we can remember our loved ones who have died. We prefer that your framed photo be wallet-sized, 4×6, or 5×7.

All students must have their keyboards on their iPads as much as possible. If you choose to take the keyboard off to use the device, you must put it back on when you put it in your cinch bag or carrying it from class to class.

All damaged devices that have come in are due to the keyboard not being on the device.

There is currently a bug in the Canvas Student app which prevents users from clearing items from their To-Do list. However, students are able to clear items from their To-Do list through a browser, like Safari. The changes in Safari will be reflected in the app.

This issue should be resolved in the next update to the Canvas Student app.

On Monday, October 28th, DeLaSalle will host its first Open House for prospective students and their parents.

Thank you for understanding this request and making plans now to go home immediately after school on the 28th.

Several DeLaSalle teams and athletes are competing in sections. Show your Islander spirit and cheer them on as they continue their playoff run. Find a sport-by-sport schedule here.

Winter sports are just around the corner! DeLaSalle students who wish to participate in a winter sport must register for the sport before it holds its first practice. Students received an email with a registration link and season start dates. As a reminder, DeLaSalle students must have a current physical (current within the last three years) and Minnesota State High School League eligibility statement on file with the Activities Office before they can participate in a sport. DeLaSalle offers winter sports in boys’ and girls’ basketball, JV competition cheer, boys’ and girls’ hockey, sideline cheer, boys’ swimming, and wrestling. Our hockey, wrestling, and swimming teams are co-op programs with other schools.
