In our self-reliant independence, we can easily forget that
our God really knows what is good for us, and calls us to that goodness.
In our rebellion, we sometimes cling to our freedom
to be self-destructive or to simply keep our life on a shallow level.
Let’s let ourselves be drawn into the invitation to live our lives
touched by the grace of God-with-us.

In the news…
DeLaSalle is operating under full distance learning for the rest of the first semester. Here’s what you need to know to be a successful student during this time.
The first semester will end on Friday, December 18. Teachers may assign end-of-semester assessments or projects that may be cumulative or unit-based. However, there will be no special schedules for final assessments and students will complete any work within the regular distance learning class schedule. Students may utilize WIN sessions and office hours to connect and seek help from their teachers. We wish all students a successful end to the semester.
Students should update to iOS 14 over Christmas break to ensure app functionality. App updates will be pushed out periodically over break. Please make sure this update is completed before January 4, 2021. Make sure your device is backed up to the iCloud before updating. The update can be found by going to Settings > General > Software Update. If you do not have enough storage available on your device, please delete any non school apps and/or apps you do not need for school to make room for the update.
DeLaSalle will celebrate Christmas with a virtual liturgy and program on Tuesday, December 15. This annual program features Scripture, prayer, and a Christmas reflection from school president, Dr. Bryan Bass. Students will perform this year’s rendition of “The 12 Days of Christmas” and sing The Christmas Song.
Please note that, because of the program, we are adjusting Tuesday’s class schedule as follows:
- Period 5: 9:00-10:00am
- Christmas Program: 10:00-10:30
- Period 6/WIN Session 1: 10:40-11:10
- Period 6/WIN Session 2: 11:10-11:40
- BREAK: 11:40-12:10pm
- Period 7: 12:10pm-1:10
- Period 8: 1:20-2:20pm
If you are a student who lost your job this year because of COVID-19, you can now apply for unemployment benefits, according to a court ruling this week. You can learn how to apply for the unemployment benefits here. Applications must be submitted by December 25.
This is the last week we are supplying distance learning meal kits to students who ordered them. Thank you to all who participated in this program. The DeLaSalle Cafe will resume providing distance learning meal kits to full distance learning students when classes resume in January.
