Anniversary Year Class Reunions
The DLS Alumni Association invites Islanders to celebrate a high school reunion every five years. Class reunions offer a fun, social time with high school friends you see often and those you haven’t seen in years …
… to reminisce about high school activities, classes, and teachers; to laugh about the antics you enjoyed.
… to network with friends on a professional level, possibly opening up new opportunities.
… to get trusted referrals ~for example, a doctor, car mechanic, or plumber; to hear recommendations for grad school or trade unions.
… to truly connect with others in person rather than in the cyber world.
… to share stories about jobs and families, travel and pastimes, to see where classmates landed in life.
… to pray together ~in thanksgiving for Lasallian education, in remembrance of those who have died, in petition for future graces, in gratitude for DeLaSalle High School which continues to offer all graduates a welcoming, caring community.
Classmates are invited to form a reunion committee to plan in collaboration with the DLS Alumni Relations Office which will assist classmates with communication and event advertisement, preparations and organizing.
Make your reunion memorable! Become a member of your class reunion planning committee. You can help build enthusiasm, share event ideas, help raise funds for a class gift, reacquaint yourself with classmates, all the while having a great time.

Islanders Are Everywhere!
Each spring, members of the DeLaSalle Advancement Office join the school president in visiting with alumni and friends in Arizona and Florida. These outreach efforts give us a chance to thank our supporters and share the good news of DeLaSalle, a story that still resonates for multiple generations. Each year, many alums and friends visit the school or attend school events. And each year, the DeLaSalle Office of Advancement travels to meet with alumni and friends as a sign of appreciation for their ongoing support. Advancement staff have the opportunity to update and thank our supporters, and attendees to those events find ways to support the school’s longevity and vitality. If you are in these areas and wish to attend an event, please contact Liz Hewitt.
The 2020 alumni and friends receptions were held on February 26 in Tonto Verde, AZ, February 28 in Tucson, AZ, and March 11 in Bonita Springs, FL.
Class Socials and Get-Togethers
Between anniversary reunion years, many DE classmates gather together annually at home picnics, local restaurants, and sports venues. Here is a list of upcoming social events. If you are interested in participating in an event or would like to organize one for your class, please contact Kathy Busch in the Alumni Relations Office, 612-676-7687. We’ll be happy to help you spread the word!
