The DeLaSalle Parents in Prayer group will hold its first gathering of the school year on Friday at 12:00pm at the new Baldwin Family Prayer Grotto. The grotto is located in the courtyard next to Founder’s Park near the intersection of Grove Street and West Island Avenue. Any DeLaSalle parent is invited to attend and should bring their own blanket or chair. The group will practice proper social distancing as it prays for the school, the staff, and the students. For more information, contact Parent Association chair Jackie Schluter Johnson

The deadline for seniors to register for the school-based ACT has passed and registration is closed. The final date to register was Friday, September 11th. Students who registered will receive a separate email with payment details.

Many of our student activities met for the first time during the WIN period on Tuesday. There will be another chance to participate when we have the WIN period again on Friday. And if you haven’t done so, you can still sign up to participate in one of our many clubs or organizations. The sign up form for activities is different than the sign up for the WIN sessions (which is done through the Student Support Time software), so don’t forget to do that either!

Alatl Society will meet on Monday, September 21 at 3:10pm in B302. We will meet in the room and go outside to the area near Brother’s Plaza. This change is an attempt to avoid the meeting times of other clubs. Please see Mr. Sczepanski if you have any questions.

The class will be taught via Google Meet from 4:00-6:00pm.
