Loving God,

Give us a blessing so that our words and actions be one in unity.
Let us work together with understanding and compassion in our hearts.
as we light the way to your heavenly kingdom.

Prayer Service

We will have our Homecoming Prayer Service during WIN today. We are excited to welcome Linda Blair ’11 back to campus to provide the alumni reflection. Linda received her bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University and is completing her law degree from the University of California-Berkeley. She is currently a judicial law clerk for the Minnesota Supreme Court

Homecoming T-Shirts on Sale

The 2021 Homecoming t-shirts are here and will be sold during lunches starting today. T-shirts cost $10. Buy one and show your Islander spirit!

Bonfire/Karaoke/Movie Night

Students are invited to hang out with classmates and friends around the bonfire on Brothers’ Plaza starting tomorrow at 6:00pm. There will also be karaoke for you to show off your singing voice. Then stick around for a movie on the athletic field at 7:30pm! Vote here for which movie you’d like to see.


At the conclusion of the Pep Fest on Friday, we will head into DeLaPalooza. We plan to have games/activities outdoors, as well as a food truck(s). Students will need to bring money for the food truck. Steve the donkey will also be in attendance. Bring $1 (proceeds go to StuCo). All activities will be moved off of the Athletic Field by 4:30pm in preparation for the game, however, other places around the building will still be in use until 5:30pm.

Homecoming Dance

The Homecoming Dance is Saturday from 7:00-10:00pm on the athletic field. Dance tickets cost $5 and will be sold during lunches starting today. Islanders are allowed to bring an outside guest but must complete and submit this Dance Guest Registration Form by the end of the day Friday. Make your song requests here.

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 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.

If you are interested in being a part of the National Art Honor Society (NAHS), a mandatory meeting will take place before school today 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.

Today there is a WIN period after 5th period. The first WIN session is reserved for the Homecoming prayer service. But you have the opportunity to sign up for the 2nd WIN session, which could include participating in an activity or in quiet study. Don’t forget to log in to the Student Support Time software to sign up for your 2nd WIN session.
