Prayer from the University of Notre Dame
Jesus, help us to always remember that you are Lord and Savior. You are the fulfillment of history’s yearning. At the close of this day, we pray that we, too, can “bring good news to the poor.” Guide us to walk with those in pain. And bring us the insight to let go of anything that keeps us captive. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us! 
Live Jesus in our Hearts – Forever!

If you are a current 9th, 10th, or 11th grader, you received two emails on February 7 with important information about how to request classes for the 2020-21 school year. One email featured a Course Request Worksheet that can help you in identifying which classes you may want to take. The other email included a link for you to actually request your classes.

You will have the chance to talk with your academic mentor about this on Thursday, but we also suggest you talk with your parents and your current teachers as you decide which classes to take.

Please submit your course requests by Friday, February 21.

A collaborative student-group focused on making the college application process easier. We will meet every Wednesday after school from 3:15-4:30 PM in the Guidance Office.

The college application process is long and complex. College Connections seeks to make this empowering and collaborative, rather than unhealthy and competitive. In partnership with ADI Ambassadors, Asian students will have the opportunity of accessing national resources for scholarships, free summer programs, and college networking.

DeLaSalle has enjoyed its prime location on Nicollet Island for more than a century. We are blessed to share this vibrant neighborhood with residents and businesses and, just like you do where you live, we work to always be a good neighbor. This is especially important in light of the limited parking on and near our campus.

Thank you for observing all posted parking signs in the neighborhood.

As a reminder, students who have purchased a parking permit may park in the school parking lot or in the nearby Nicollet Island Pavilion overflow parking lot. Students may not park in the 2-hour parking spaces on the north side of Nicollet Island, which are monitored by traffic control agents with the City of Minneapolis, who regularly patrol and issue citations to violators. Students who do not have a parking permit may ride the school bus, carpool with another student, or use public transportation to arrive at DeLaSalle.
