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.
Help us remember what a difference it makes when we make time with You in prayer.
Awaken in us a desire to hear You speak words of affirmation, assurance,
and wisdom over our hearts as we prepare to go about this day.
In Jesus’ Name,
Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us.
Live, Jesus, in our hearts – Forever!

There are fees and costs related to unreturned items.
All students will go through the end of the year iPad checkout process on Friday during 8th period classes even if you are purchasing their iPads.

* 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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
