Saint Bernadette, you are the patron saint both of those in poverty and those insulted for their faith. Help me to see you in all those who live in poverty. And help me build a strong foundation for my faith that can weather whatever difficulties may come.


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

In the news…

The spring musical “25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” concludes this weekend. The cast and crew of the award-winning DeLaSalle Theatre program will stage their fifth production this school year tonight and tomorrow at 7:30pm on the Friendshuh Stage in the Florance Center.

The musical features an eclectic group of sixth graders who are each eager to win the spelling bee for different reasons. In hilarious, touching, and catchy songs, each speller reveals his/her hopes, struggles, and passions as they make their way through the competition. Send an email to the theatre box office to reserve your tickets. Tickets cost $15 for reserved seating; $10 for general admission; $7 for students and seniors; and free for DeLaSalle students with their school ID.

DeLaSalle has partnered with counselors from Twin Cities Catholic high schools to develop a week of college planning programming for families. Learn from and connect with college representatives on a variety of topics, including two-year community and technical colleges, public and private universities, and highly selective schools. These virtual events replace the typical college fair week that would occur in the spring, which is not happening because of the coronavirus pandemic. The events are free, but space is limited, so register now!

Students and families may now register to volunteer selling concessions during Twins games at Target Field for the DeLaSalle Islander Foundation.

Target Field contributes to the Islander Foundation for the volunteers’ service and volunteers may request grants to offset fees and expenses associated with attending DeLaSalle. Visit the Islander Foundation website to learn more about the foundation and how to register to volunteer. You may contact Islander Foundation coordinator, Carlos Villagomez, with questions at 612-676-7688.

ALAS is meeting today during the first WIN session to discuss the college process. The info session will be led by senior Latinx students who have gone through this process and have gathered information that could be helpful for anyone about to start this journey. The ALAS board members are really excited to inform De students about college, so do not hesitate to join us this week. We encourage all students of all backgrounds to come and learn from their fellow peers!

The Inklings book club will be moving on to the second book, Children of Virtue and Vengeance, in Tomi Adeyemi’s fantastic trilogy. Our first meeting on the second book will be today from 3:10-4:00pm. Our book club is both in-person and online. We have room for a few new members, so if you would like to join us, please email Mrs. Wojda or talk to Mrs. Arens, Mr. Newman or Mrs. Wojda. We will get you a book and bring you up to speed on the first book. Join us!

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.
