Grant us, Lord God, a vision of your world as your love would have it:
a world where the weak are protected, and none go hungry or poor;
a world where the riches of creation are shared, and everyone can enjoy them;
a world where different races and cultures live in harmony and mutual respect;
a world where peace is built with justice, and justice is guided by love.|
Give us the inspiration and courage to build it, through Jesus Christ our Lord.


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

In the news…

Students across Minnesota are planning a peaceful walkout this afternoon at 1:00pm in response to the death of Daunte Wright. For students who would wish to participate, DeLaSalle will provide space on Brothers’ Plaza near the athletic field (please exit through the LL Gray Gym). Students may dress in black and bring signs if they wish. Students will not leave campus, and they will be allowed to return to class following the walkout. School operations will continue normally to the conclusion of the school day on Monday, and students will be responsible to make up any coursework they miss.

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, but not this year 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.

Due to an after school schedule conflict and variable weather conditions, Atlatl Society will not meet after school this spring. Instead, we will meet periodically during WIN Sessions based on weather forecasts. Please check Mr. Sczepanski’s WIN Sessions to see when Atlatl Society will meet and email Mr. Sczepanski with any questions.

BLK (Black.Liberated.Knowledgeable) is hosting a quesiton and answer session for all students on Wednesday at 5:00pm. Use the Google Meet code BLK 123. All are invited to tune in and bring up questions to BLK board members. BLK will also be discussing upcoming events and elections.

BLK (Black.Liberated.Knowledgeable) is accepting applications for its executive board. If you are interested in running, please fill out this form. You may contact Mr. Hallman or Ms. McAdams with questions.

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.
