The cross, a sign of our Catholic, Christian heritage, a calling to all associated with DeLaSalle to share in the meaning of Christ’s resurrection and promise of eternal life.
The star, a symbol associated with Lasallian or Christian Brothers schools around the world. It is a symbol of enlightenment and instruction, a reminder that those “who instruct many unto justice will shine as stars for all eternity.”
The solid letter, “D” for DeLaSalle – or for “De” as the school has commonly been known by families, alumni and friends throughout its history.
The waters symbolize two things both near and dear to DeLaSalle: our unique location, on an island in the middle of the most important waterway in the United States, and our waters of baptism, essential to all life, the grace that sustains those who have become children of God.
We will fight right through the foe
Shouting our battle cry, ready to do or die
Side-by-side, along we go
We will win the victory
And we will fight, fight, fight straight through
We’ll lead you on with cheers of loyalty
So march on for De!
D-E-L-A-S-A-L-L-E, DeLaSalle! DeLaSalle!
