Let us remember…that we are in the holy presence of God.
+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Giving God,
Thank you for the gift of good teachers.
Thank you for the gift of kind classmates.
I pray this weekend will bring everyone enjoyment both in recreation and when relaxing.
Please bless us and keep us safe until we gather again on Monday.
Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us.
Live, Jesus, in our hearts – Forever!

Make a note in your planner: Next week, we flip Wednesday and Thursday schedules. We will have WIN on Wednesday to allow us to gather for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception and Our Lady of Guadalupe Mass.

Fr. Kevin will be at DeLaSalle on Tuesday, Dec. 7th, during both WIN sessions to offer the sacrament of Reconciliation. Students who do not wish to receive the sacrament but would like to talk and receive spiritual direction are also welcome to visit with Fr. Kevin or Ms. Stecklein during this time. Sign up in SST under Nicole Stecklein.

Be kind to yourself as the first semester comes to an end; reduce your stress level by using good study habits to prepare for finals. You can use this Finals Prep Tool to help you prepare for finals and map out your strategy for each day. Once you have taken notes and studied for finals, it is time to take them. Follow these Testing Strategies to help you be successful with finals. These tools and more can be found on the DLS Library Homework help page in Canvas.
