God, enlighten the darkness of my heart.
Give me right faith, sure hope and perfect charity.
Fill me with understanding and knowledge that I may fulfill your command.
Amen

In the news…

The Lasallian MInistry office has several ways for you to get involved during the school year if you are interested in practicing your faith, performing service, or participating in social justice events. Ms. Stecklein and Mr. Cardenal from the Lasallian Ministry office will visit your Theology class today or tomorrow to explain more. They invite you to complete this survey to share what ways you may want to get involved.

Several student activities will begin meeting for the first time the week of September 14. Some activities and clubs will look different this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. But what has not changed is the opportunity for students to explore their interests and connect with their classmates while participating in fine arts programs, academic clubs, and other organizations. Students may still register here to participate.

Moderators have begun communicating and will continue to email students registered for an activity with specific details about when and where activities will take place. Some clubs, but not all, will meet during the WIN period. For more information, visit the Activity Programs webpage.

Are you interested in learning a survival skill that was started 40,000 years ago? Do you want to be able to feed yourself if you ever get lost in the wilderness?

Many ACT test sites have been closed due to the global pandemic and we know that our seniors have been struggling to find a place to test. Fortunately, DeLaSalle is now able to host a school based ACT for our current seniors. Because this is a school based test, students will sign up and pay for their test through DeLaSalle. Please note that this test date/event WILL NOT appear on the national ACT Registration website and the only way to sign up and pay for the test is through DeLaSalle. Please watch the video message from the DLS office of Counseling and College Planning concerning ACT. It may answer some questions you have been thinking about.
