Dear Lord, Today we honor our veterans, worthy men and women who gave their best when they were called upon to serve and protect their country. We pray that you will bless them for their unselfish service in the continual struggle to preserve our freedoms, our safety, and our country’s heritage, for all of us

Amen.

In the news…

This week, we are recognizing students for their academic achievement. We honored Gold Cohort students yesterday during lunches. Silver Cohort students will be recognized on Friday at the beginning of each lunch wave. Blue Cohort students will receive their recognition in the mail. Students will receive an academic pin if they earned a place on the Honor Roll during both semesters of the 2019-20 school year, and an academic letter if they have earned a place on the Honor Roll for four semesters. Congratulations to those students who have earned recognition for their hard work!

Are you interested in theatre? DeLaSalle Theatre is holding auditions this week for its upcoming shows – a virtual performance of “A Christmas Story” as well as a podcast play and the MSHSL Competition One Act, both of which are to be determined. All students are welcome – from first time performers to stage veterans.

Auditions are in person tomorrow for Silver Cohort students. Blue Cohort students can audition either day or by appointment. Auditions are at 3:30pm – meet at the stage door across from D117. No need to prepare an advance, we’ll provide audition sides via QR code at auditions.

Tech sign-ups will be those days as well, same times. There will be heavy emphasis on sound and video recording interest for these performances. Email Mr. Buffington with questions.

Come join the first meeting today for ALAS, a new DeLaSalle club. We will meet virtually here at 2pm. ALAS stands for association of Latinx and Ally students. The objective of this club is to integrate the Latinx culture into the DeLaSalle community and to create a safe space for Latinx and ally students. This is an opportunity for people to discuss a variety of topics within the Latinx identity or to expand their knowledge about the Latinx experience. We encourage students from all backgrounds at DeLaSalle to join!

It’s that time….. time to start planning the 12 days of Christmas!! Due to the many changes this year, we are asking all seniors to work together to plan out the 12 days skit. This year’s Christmas program will be pre-recorded so we have the option to show it virtually.  Submit your ideas here! Please contact Ms. Stecklein with questions or to get involved.

Black.Liberated.Knowledgeable will host a prayer march for equity on Wednesday, November 25, the six month anniversary of the death of George Floyd. The march will celebrate not only his life, but all the Black Lives that have been wrongfully, viciously, and unjustly taken away by what we are supposed to call our protectors, known as our local Law Enforcement. Our message is to remind the world that we are still FIGHTING in this battle FOR EQUITY. This is a non-violent protest, so please join us as we March for Equity.

Please RSVP here if you would like to be a chaperone at the event and so we can keep track of who is attending the debrief that follows. You can purchase BLK apparel like t-shirts, sweatshirts, and face masks here.

Photographers from Lifetouch will take school pictures on Monday for Gold Cohort students and next Thursday for Silver Cohort students. The photographer will be on campus until 4:00pm on both days for students in the Blue Cohort who wish to have their school picture taken after school. Blue Cohort students should sign up here to indicate when they will have their picture taken. Students must be dressed in school uniform. Ninth grade and new transfer students had their school pictures taken in August.

Parents may review, select, and pay for a photo package through the Lifetouch website. Parents will have up to 48 hours after Picture Day to complete their online order. Please refer to DeLaSalle’s Picture Day ID EVTBPRTKB.
