O God of all beginnings and endings,
We praise and thank you for the gift of this school year.
It has been a time filled with grace and blessings,
With challenges and opportunities, joys and sorrows.
Give us the rest and refreshment we need this summer.
Let our efforts of this past year bear fruit.
Bring all of our plans to a joyful conclusion,
And bless us, according to your will,
Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us!
Live Jesus in our Hearts – Forever

Teachers will also be available in their classroom before school starting at 8:00am or after school until 4:00pm. You will be charged for any materials you do not return.
Students who will not return to DeLaSalle in 2021-22 may request a reimbursement or balance transfer of any remaining money on their cafeteria account. Families should indicate their preference using this form. Requests will only be processed if a student does not have any outstanding tuition payments and has turned in all school-issued materials. Cafeteria accounts for all returning students roll over to the next school year.
Students registered for some honors or Advanced Placement courses in 2021-22 are required to complete coursework before the new school year begins on Monday, August 23. Find which classes have summer assignments here.

Athletes will sign up for a one-hour training period between 7:00-11:00am on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.
