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.
Creator God,
We praise You for sending Your Son Jesus to be one with us.
Life can feel lonely, but the fact is, we are never alone.
That is a truth we can cling to during the hard times.
May this new week be filled with Your Easter grace,
Amen.
Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us.
Live, Jesus, in our hearts – Forever!

EDUCATOR APPRECIATION NOTES
Last Thursday was Educator Appreciation Day. Thanks to all students who sent messages of gratitude to De educators. Each day this week, we will feature a few of those messages.
★ Thank you for being a great teacher, I love the classroom environment and the vibes you put out. I feel welcome in your class and I’m grateful for that. I appreciate you.
 

★ Thank you for helping me stay informed while at De. I appreciate how you read the announcements before each class and your teaching style. 

★ Thank you for being patient with me when I don’t work as hard as I should in your class, I hope you know it’s nothing personal. I look forward to watching the motivational videos you provide, yes they’re something small but to me those small things are much appreciated! Even if I don’t treat you with the respect you deserve, I always feel respected by you and I apologize for my behavior sometimes. When I go to your class you never fail to remind me how Islanders should treat each other. 🙂

MAKING SENSE OF COLLEGE FINANCIAL AID AWARDS – WIN Session
Seniors,
If you need help understanding college financial plans for next year or comparing financial aid packages, plan to attend the College Planning session tomorrow (Tuesday), during WIN #2. College Advisers will give a short presentation followed by one-on-one time with students who want to review their awards. Also, if you missed the Financial Aid Info Night last fall or just need a refresher on how to read your financial aid award, here is a one-page guide from College Covered.
COLLEGE SIGNING DAY – TODAY!
This annual celebration for seniors will take place during all lunch periods today (Monday). Seniors are allowed to wear a t-shirt or sweatshirt from their college with DLS uniform pants. They will sign their name and college destination on our destination poster, sign up for a drawing, and also get a special graduation cookie. Students who have received scholarships are recognized at this event. If you have not responded to Ms. McAdams with this information please email it to her ASAP to be recognized at this event and to be included in the graduation program.

KEEP OUR ISLAND BEAUTIFUL
The Environmental Subcommittee of NHS will be hosting its Island Clean-Up event this Saturday, May 7, from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. Join us whenever you can! Staying for the whole event will count as 3 Christian Service hours. Check-in will be on the field and from there students can begin picking up trash near the school. Some supplies will be provided, but feel free to bring your own gloves and bags if you have them. The person who clears the most trash each hour will get a $10 gift card to the Tare Market, a low waste store in Minneapolis that stocks local products.
