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.
God,
Help us to love the life we live right now.
Show us the good things we often overlook
and help us to be content with what we have.
Forgive us when we compare ourselves to others
or wish for things outside of Your love.
Your grace is all we need.
Amen.
Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us.
Live, Jesus, in our hearts – Forever!

There are just a few remaining openings for the June session. If you’re interested, be sure to register this week.
LUNCH ACCOUNT BALANCES
Students who will not be returning to DeLaSalle in 2022-23 may request a reimbursement or balance transfer of any remaining money on their cafeteria account. Families should indicate their preference using this form. Requests will only be processed if a student does not have any outstanding tuition payments and has turned in all school-issued materials. Cafeteria accounts for all returning students roll over to the next school year.
LOCKER CLEAN-OUT and iPAD RETURN
Please make plans to clean out your locker this week. Discard any items in the proper trash and recycling bins. Also, check around home for materials issued by the school, including textbooks, library books, athletic uniforms, etc., that need to be returned by the end of the week. There are fees and costs related to unreturned items.
All students will go through the end of the year iPad checkout process on Friday even if you are purchasing their iPads.
* Students Purchasing Their iPad Device
Students who are purchasing their device must bring their device to the checkout process and go through the required steps. Until this happens their device will not be taken out of the Mobile Device Management and still be under DeLaSalle’s control.
* Students Not Purchasing Their iPad Device
Students who are not purchasing their device must turn in their school-issued iPad with the school-issued iPad case, power adapter, and power/sync cable. This form will need to be filled out at iPad Collection. It is important to note there will be a charge for the deductible/repair cost for broken devices as well as replacement cost for any missing items: Damaged screen – $20; Damaged/non-working power adapter- $20; Damaged/non-working sync cable – $20; Missing keyboard or parts of case – $25.
PURCHASING YOUR iPAD
This summer DeLaSalle will refresh the devices for its IslePad one-to-one program with the purchase of new iPads. As part of this transition, DeLaSalle is offering students the opportunity to purchase their current 6th Generation iPads for $125.00 until this Friday, May 27th. This purchase price includes the case and charger that are currently assigned to the student. Students should bring this iPad Payment Form and cash and/or check payments to the Business Office. Card payments will be made through Diamond Mind.
GLOBAL ADVANTAGE PROGRAM RESUMES
The Global Advantage Program (GAP) offers DeLaSalle students opportunities for international study and welcomes international students who choose to spend a semester, a year, or their entire high school career at DeLaSalle. Through collaborative relationships with universities, De students may earn college credit through rigorous international travel courses in a variety of academic topics and locations throughout the world. The pandemic caused GAP to be “put on pause.” The program expects to resume exchanges and international academic travel for the 2022-23 school year.
Currently, we are looking for host families for exchange students and international students. If you are interested in hosting, please fill out this form.
DeLaSalle students may also begin applying for exchanges with this form.
Please contact Mr. Brad Casey with questions at brad.casey@delasalle.com
