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,
You know the wishes in our hearts of what we barely dare to hope for,
today we give them to You,
we trust them to You,
because we know that You can do more
than we could ever guess, imagine or request in our wildest dreams.
You are our hope and we trust You.
Amen.
Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us.
Live, Jesus, in our hearts – Forever!

We need dedicated Islanders who can lead grade level retreats, represent the school at public events, and help the Class of 2026 transition to De through the Summer Bridging Academy. Current 10th and 11th graders are eligible to be leaders. Please register here by Tuesday, May 31st.
ORDER YOUR DELASALLE 2022 DELTA YEARBOOK

MTC STUDENT SUMMER BUS PASSES ARE AVAILABLE
DeLaSalle students may receive unlimited rides on Metro Transit buses and light rail trains this summer, June 1 to September 6, by purchasing a Student Summer Pass for $30. Students can get unlimited rides on buses and trains up to a $3.25 fare (for fares higher than that amount, like some Northstar trips, just add stored value to your pass). It’s perfect for summer jobs, sports leagues, and all the other fun that summer brings. All you need to purchase a pass is the school name (DeLaSalle) and your student ID. Summer passes are not available for purchase at DeLaSalle. Buy your Student Summer Pass with a credit card here or with cash or a credit card at a Metro Transit Service Center.
SUMMER INTERNSHIPS AT GEORGE FLOYD MEMORIAL
Get paid to learn about cultural heritage preservation this summer! The George Floyd Global Memorial is looking to hire student interns who are 16 years or older to work part-time with memorial offerings and protest art. Black students are encouraged to apply. For more info, click here.
SUMMER SCHOOL REGISTRATION NOW OPEN
Students who are in need of course credits for graduation due to failing grades (or anticipated failing grades) this year or in previous years, or who have transferred to DeLaSalle from a school with different course sequences or credit requirements, can enroll in summer school courses to get caught up. Students will need to work with their school counselor to get enrolled. Please reach out to your counselor ASAP if you need to enroll in 2022 summer school. Students may also be able to enroll in these required courses next school year at DeLaSalle in place of other elective courses. Please reach out to your counselor if that is your preference so that we can get these courses into your schedule.

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.
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 tomorrow (Friday). 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
