God, you are the source of life and all that is good.
Grant wisdom to those who govern us,
compassion and courage
to those who work to defend human life,
and safety and care to every human being.


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

DeLaSalle students who were not present for Picture Day in November or who wish to have their picture retaken may do so during Picture Retake Day. The retake day for Gold Cohort students is Monday, January 25 and for Silver Cohort students is Thursday, January 28. Students in the Blue Cohort can have their picture retaken either day between 3:00-4:00pm. Retakes will occur in the Schulze Learning Lab (D104A). Students who already placed an order but were not happy with their original photograph will have their package automatically updated with the retake photo. Students who missed the original Picture Day may order photos online before Picture Day or up to 48 hours after or wait until the photo proof arrives three weeks later.
