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.
Today I pray for all those who are special and dear to me.
Please bless them with a fantastic day in which they see Your love,
Your grace, and Your kindness surround them.
I pray in Jesus’ name,
Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us.
Live, Jesus, in our hearts – Forever!

|2022 TECHNOVATION TEAM NOW FORMING|
DeLaSalle Women: Are you interested in having fun solving problems through technology? Join Technovation! To start, Technovation teams develop an idea to solve a problem within the community. The next step is to build an app solution and a business plan to launch the app. Finally, teams pitch or market the solution to the business community at Appapalooza in early May. The Appapalooza is an awards ceremony and party at the Minneapolis Convention Center for all team members. It’s a fun party and event to get to know others, apply for scholarships, and learn more about technology career opportunities for women. For the past six years, Islanders have won Technovation awards through NCWIT-MN (National Center for Women & Information Technology). Past DeLaSalle teams have built apps for Safe Driving; Saving Bees; Connecting with Your Neighborhood; Recycling Trash to Treasure; Starting in a New School; and Decreasing Your Carbon Footprint. To learn more, come to a WIN session on Tuesday, March 1st. Sign up for WIN #1 listed under Mr. Pearson. Questions? Talk to Mr. Pearson or Ms. Roggow.
