Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit,
but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.
Let each of you look not only to his own interests,
but also to the interests of others.


Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us!

Live Jesus in our Hearts – Forever

In the news…

Just a reminder, loaner iPads are reserved only for students who forget their devices at home. We will begin issuing minor violations for students who request loaners starting today (Wednesday, Nov. 3). Please refer to the student handbook on not having your device at school: If students fail to bring their device to school, they may check to see if a loaner is available in the IT Office, D217. If not, students are responsible for completing course work as though they had their device with them. Students who forget to bring their device to school will be issued a minor violation.

Good luck to the Islander volleyball team as they take on #2 seed St. Paul Highland Park tonight in the section final – the winner goes to state! If the Islanders win, it will be their first state tournament in program history!
