God of goodness,
We thank you for being with us in all our joys and sorrows,
for your comfort in our sadness,
your companionship in our loneliness.
Thank you for friends, for health and for grace.
May we live this and every day conscious of all that has been given to us.

Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us! 
Live Jesus in our Hearts – Forever

In the news…

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

DeLaSalle families may order a supply of healthy breakfast and lunches for students participating via distance learning. Orders should be placed by Monday at 3:00pm for pickup on Wednesday between 11:00am-3:00pm. Families may also have the meal kits delivered to their house. Please use this form to place your order.

DeLaSalle typically administers standardized tests to all students on the second Wednesday of each October. Students in grades 9-10-11 take developmentally appropriate standardized tests which help prepare them for college entrance exams. This year, we have had to spread out the tests to accommodate for COVID-19 safety protocols.

DeLaSalle will offer the Iowa Test of Educational Development to ninth grade students on Wednesday, January 27, from 8:30am-12:30pm. Tenth graders may take the Pre-ACT on Wednesday, February 24, 2021, from 8:30am-12:00pm. All students are strongly encouraged to take the test offered at their grade level but must opt-in by preregistering. Please click on the name of the test for a form that describes the test and provides specific logistics and registration. All tests are paper-pencil and given onsite following our Covid-19 school safety protocols.

Please complete the registration form for either exam by Friday, December 4.

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.

Learn how to drive from an Islander alum! The next driver’s ed class starts the Monday after Thanksgiving.
