Dear God,
Thank you for today, yesterday, and tomorrow;
my family, my joys, my sorrows;
for all that made me stronger.


Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us!

Live Jesus in our Hearts – Forever

In the news…

Grade level meetings are this morning for all students. Ninth and 10th grade students will report to the Florance Center, while 11th and 12th grade students will report to the Main Gym. Students will have a short break midway through the WIN period and then rotate to the other location. Principal Jim Benson, the Deans of Student Life, and other administrators will review student expectations for the year, including behavior, proper uniform attire, and how to sign up for WIN periods.

DeLaSalle is hosting a vaccination clinic! We are providing the opportunity for those who are not yet vaccinated against COVID-19 to get a vaccine on Friday, September 10, between 3:00-6:00pm in D104. Anyone who is 12 years or older and is eligible to receive a vaccine may get their shot at the school – and those who get a shot can receive an incentive for doing so! Vaccinating nurses will bring the Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson and Johnson vaccines. Only the Pfizer vaccine is approved for those ages 12 or older.

Pre-register today so we can have enough vaccines, though walk-ins are welcome. Students who are younger than 18 must have a parent or guardian’s consent to receive the Pfizer vaccine. The vaccinating nurse will accept verbal consent over the phone, so make sure your parent is available by phone if you call them or have them present with you at the vaccination. 

Learn more about our COVID-19 protocols and mitigation strategies here.

Sign up to join the Women of Words (W.O.W.) book discussion group. We will read 3-4 books over the school year with discussions after everyone is done reading. Please fill out this Google form to participate this year. We hope to be able to distribute books by mid-September.

If you are interested in being a part of the National Art Honor Society (NAHS), a mandatory meeting will take place before school on Wednesday, September 8 at 8:00am in room B107.

Students are eligible to join NAHS if they are currently in the 11th or 12th grade. Students need to have a B average (3.0 or higher) in their art classes and complete at least 10 hours of creative projects within DeLaSalle and our surrounding community. Students that join will be required to accept the NAHS course on Canvas. The Canvas page is where you will find all information for NAHS projects and events that are happening throughout the year. There is also a $5 membership fee that can be brought to the first meeting to submit with a signed contract given to you at the meeting.

Please email Ms. Swords with any questions you may have.
