Trust in the LORD and do good,
that you may dwell in the land and be fed in security.
Take delight in the LORD,
and he will grant you your heart’s requests.

Amen

In the news…

Today, we will have our second WIN (What I Need) time during 6th period. Here is what you need to know:

  • Students in the Blue and Gold Cohorts (who are learning remotely) should stay logged into their 5th period class. You will watch a video that explains the new Student Support Time software we are using to manage student time during the WIN period. After the video, you will have the rest of the WIN period for independent study. On Wednesday of next week, Gold Cohort students will meet in person with their academic mentor. Academic mentors will send an email to Blue Cohort students to set up a time next week to check in via Google Meet.
  • Students in the Silver Cohort:
    • If you are a 9th grader, you should report to the LL Gray Gym with your backpack and materials following your 5th period class. You will watch a video that explains the new Student Support Time software we are using to manage student time during the WIN period. You will be dismissed to their academic mentor meeting following the video.
    • If you are not a 9th grader, you should physically stay in your 5th period class to watch a video that explains the Student Support Time software we are using to manage student time during the WIN period. You will be dismissed to your academic mentor meeting following the video.
    • You will remain with your academic mentor for the duration of the WIN period.

The DeLaSalle Cafe serves breakfast daily with easy grab ‘n go options to give you a boost to start your day. A student breakfast costs $2.00 and includes yogurt, muffin, orange juice, and milk. You can buy breakfast from the mobile cart located in the hallway behind the Florance Center stage (the hallway right across from the Albers Atrium entrance).

Students who participate in hybrid learning on campus may purchase breakfast and lunch each day. Breakfast will be sold from a mobile cart located behind the Florance Center stage (in the hallway across from the Albers Atrium entrance). Lunch will be sold from a mobile cart near your child’s 3rd or 7th period class (on the first and second floors of the A building, on the second floor of the B building, and in Albers Atrium for students with classes in the D building). Lunch will occur during three different waves between 11:30am-1:30pm – when your child eats depends upon which class they are in and you can find the lunch wave schedule in our Hybrid Model class schedule here.

Students who wish to purchase lunch should complete this form at the beginning of their first class period of the day so we can get an accurate count of how many lunches to serve. A student lunch costs $3.25 and includes a pre-packaged main entree, fruit or vegetable, and milk. You may find the lunch menu each day in The Source. A student’s LunchTime account will be charged according to their eligibility (paid, reduced, or free).

A reminder that a student must have sufficient funds in their LunchTime account in order to purchase food from the DeLaSalle Cafe. Families may deposit money electronically into their child’s LunchTime account (click here for instructions on how to create and manage your LunchTime account). DeLaSalle this year will not accept cash or check payments at the school to prevent the handling of currency. Please contact cafe@delasalle.com with questions.

Students who do not wish to purchase a lunch may bring their own cold lunch from home. Microwaves will not be available and we suggest packing the lunch in a lunch bag with an icepack to keep the food cold.

There is no school on Monday as we observe the Labor Day holiday. Enjoy your three-day weekend, Islanders!

Seniors who wish to have their photo included in the school yearbook and in the class composite picture that hangs in the hallway must get a senior picture taken by David Bank Studios before Friday, October 23.
