In the news…

We host our first Open House for Prospective Students and Families tonight. In order to clean and set up our school for our visitors, we ask that all students who are not involved in an after school activity leave school immediately after the last bell at 3:00pm today. Thank you for planning accordingly.

Tomorrow will be an online learning day for all students. You will participate in classes asynchronously from home. Students should log into Canvas for assignments from their teachers that will be posted by 9:00am. Students can find other helpful tips for the day here. Tomorrow’s online learning day will give faculty and staff the opportunity to participate in ongoing formation around the Lasallian mission. There will also be an online learning day on Friday, November 12, which will allow faculty and staff to work through curriculum documentation and writing.

The 2020-21 yearbook has arrived! If you ordered a book last year, you should check your email for a message from about how to pick up your book. There are still books available for purchase for $60. Email to arrange buying one.

The first meeting for Math League will be after school today in B307.  All meets this year will be held here at DLS.  The first meet will be Monday, November 1. See Mr. Newman if you would like to participate but are not able to come to the Oct. 25 meeting. Hope to see you there, and bring a friend who’s a nerd!

Come to our first meeting and practice after school on Wednesday October 27 in B305. Unable to attend? Please contact Mr. Marrin.

College advisers continue to have WIN sessions giving seniors dedicated time and space to work on college applications with the help of the college advising team. All seniors are welcome!

This Friday and Saturday are the last two performances of DeLaSalle Theatre’s fall musical “Chicago – High School Edition.” Performances on the Friendshuh Stage in the Florance Center are at 7;30pm. Patrons may purchase reserved tickets for $15 in advance for Friday’s show here; and for Saturday’s show here. All other tickets will be sold at the door and cost $10 for general admission, $8 for senior citizens and students, and free for DeLaSalle students with school ID.

Chicago is a dazzling and satirical look at fame, justice, and the media machine. Set in 1920s and based on real-life events, Chicago follows Roxie Hart, a wannabe vaudevillian star who murders her lover and is arrested, despite her attempts to convince her pushover husband, Amos, to lie for her. In the Cook County Jail, Roxie meets her hero, the famed double-murderess and nightclub performer Velma Kelly. When both acquire the same lawyer, the greedy superstar, Billy Flynn, tensions come to a head as they vie for the spotlight.

Do you have an opinion about the future of the Catholic Church? Have you ever started a sentence with “The Church needs to…”? High school students in particular are being asked to weigh in as part of a synod process that is underway in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. Your input is important to helping shape Synod focus areas – important topics in our faith. One of these focus areas is, “Forming youth and young adults in and for a Church that is always young.” Get involved at your local parish. Find more information here.

Students may now register for winter sports at DeLaSalle! We offer boys’ and girls’ basketball, boys’ and girls’ hockey, boys’ swimming, wrestling, winter sideline cheer, and, new this year, nordic skiing. If you want to participate in a sport, you should register here as soon as possible so that you can receive important information about practices and the team. You must also have a current physical on file with the Student Activities office. 

October is Respect for Life Month, a time in which we’re invited to reflect more deeply on the dignity of every human life. As part of our DeLaSalle celebration of life, we will be partnering with Agape Oasis Child Care and Crisis Intervention Center and Mary’s Place Transitional Housing to help support those in need. Agape Oasis is in need of SCHOOL SUPPLIES (pencils, markers, notebooks, etc.) and Mary’s Place is in need DIAPERS (size 2-5 preferred). Please drop off donations in the portable baby crib located in Albers Atrium. Thank you for your donations!!
