This month in our nation’s character
Is Black History month.
Help us to realize that Black history is
All our histories.
May the day come when these stories
Are so wildly taught that no month need
Be separately divided.


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

You will meet with your academic mentor on Wednesday afternoon. This mentor meeting will give you a chance to reflect on your first semester grades and discuss how you are doing so far this semester. You will also have the chance to talk about course requests for the 2021-22 school year. On Wednesday, students in grades 9-10-11 should check their email for a grade specific course request worksheet that will help you identify your required courses and elective course possibilities. You will receive a link on Friday to begin requesting courses.

If you are having trouble, you may contact the Student Helpline at 866-756-7346 or email Ms. Braun.

Help support reading! Riley Thompson ’21 is leading volunteers in the construction, decoration, and installation of Little Free Libraries as his Eagle Scout Service Project and is collecting books to fill the new libraries.

Please drop off any unwanted, extra, or used books (any reading level) at the front office. Donations will be used to fill Little Free Libraries in Ramsey County public parks, any extra books will be donated directly to the nonprofit organization, the Friends of Ramsey County Libraries.

The Minnesota Catholic Conference’s Catholics at the Capitol is an event to engage Catholics on key issues related to life and dignity. The April 15th event is free for students and a great way for high schoolers to learn about the legislative process and to practice their faith in the public square. Email Mrs. Stecklein if you’re interested. Please note any missed work is the responsibility of the student.
