Dear Lord, as we rise to meet each new day, let us be filled with Your spirit. Wherever we go, let us spread love, joy, peace, goodness, and faithfulness. Let us desire to become more like you and to worship you in all we do.

In the news…

Current 9th, 10th, and 11th graders can begin requesting courses for the 2021-22 school year today. Students received an email this week with a link to a course request worksheet, which can help identify and plan for the courses that you should request next year. Students will receive a separate email today with the course registration link. You can find more information about course requests on this Canvas page. You can always consult with your teachers, parents, and academic mentor regarding the courses that you should take. Course requests must be submitted by Friday, February 26.

There is no school on Monday because of the Presidents Day federal holiday. Enjoy the day off! Because of the holiday, we will have an adjusted class schedule next week. The Gold Cohort will come to school on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Silver Cohort will come to school on Thursday and Friday.

This coming Wednesday is Ash Wednesday, which marks the start of the season of Lent in the Catholic Church. This is the period of 40 days that prepares Christians for Jesus’ death on the Cross on Good Friday and Resurrection on Easter Sunday. School chaplain, Fr. Kevin Kenney ’78, will celebrate an all-school Ash Wednesday Mass at 10:00am in the Florance Center. At DeLaSalle, we observe the practice of abstaining from meat on Ash Wednesday and the Fridays of Lent. Meatless options will be served in the DeLaSalle Cafe on those days.

Sophomores – sign up now for your Islander Pride Day, which takes place after the Pre-ACT on Wednesday, February 24. Check your email for more information and the registration link.

Juniors and Seniors who are eligible to apply for National Honor Society received an email this week with an invitation to apply. Applications are due by Friday, February 19 at 8:30am. Please see Ms. Groenke or Br. Dylan, NHS co-moderators, with questions about NHS or the application process.

B.L.K. (Black.Liberated.Knowledgeable) is hosting a talent show this month to show off student talents as part of Black History Month. If you have a talent that you would like to share with the community, please fill out this form. Organizers are looking for such talents as poetry, spoken word, song, and skits. See Ms. McAdams in the Guidance office with any questions.

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.

DeLaSalle families may order a supply of healthy breakfast and lunches for the days when their student is not on campus because they are participating via distance learning.

  • Students participating in hybrid learning may order a meal kit that contains three breakfasts and three lunches each. Families may use this form to order the meal kits. Orders must be placed by noon on the first day the student attends in-person instruction (Monday or Thursday) and picked up outside the kitchen at the end of the school day on the last day they attend (Tuesday or Friday).
  • Students participating in full distance learning may also order a meal kit that contains five breakfasts and five lunches each. Orders should be placed by noon on Thursday for pickup at 3:00pm on Friday. Families may use this form to place the order.

The meals are provided at no cost to families through an extension of the federal Summer Food Service Program.
