In honor of American Education Week…

Lord, bless the teachers who give their heart to teaching.
Thank you for the special gift that you have given them
and for giving them a spirit of grace and compassion.
May they have strength and endurance to perform their many tasks,
and may they know and feel the deep gratitude of those whom they teach.

Amen.

Daily Digest

Students will participate in online learning and there are no formal classes scheduled. Please review these student expectations for online learning days. 

 

In the news…

Starting Monday, November 23, DeLaSalle will transition to full distance learning for all students. You can learn more about the transition here, including what our schedule looks like starting on Monday and our expectations for you.

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 December 15. A David Bank photographer will come to DeLaSalle for free TODAY. Please sign up for an appointment slot here. Photos will be taken in the DeLaSalle Main Gym. You may dress in school appropriate attire. Please remember to wear a mask into the building and follow physical distancing guidelines when you enter the school. Families may also schedule a photo session at the studio; sessions start at $35. Families who choose to have pictures at the studio can select which photo to be included in the yearbook. 

Photographers from Lifetouch will take school pictures Thursday for Silver Cohort students. The photographer will be on campus until 4:00pm. Students in the Blue Cohort who wish to have their school picture taken after school may come after school on Thursday. 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. 

DeLaSalle will offer a school-based ACT test to current students on Tuesday, March 2, 2021. We are excited to announce this opportunity as we do not know what testing centers will be open or closed this spring and summer, or how colleges will handle college entrance exams for the Class of 2022. This school-based test DOES NOT appear on the ACT website list of national test dates. You must register and pay for the test through DeLaSalle. The last day to register for the test is Friday, December 4. Please register here.

The March for Equity that had been planned for next week has been postponed. Please read more here.
