Union | DLS Magazine
"Union in a community is a precious gem, which is why our Lord so often recommended it to his apostles before he died. If we lose this, we lose everything. Preserve it with care, therefore, if you want your community to survive." ~ St. John Baptist de La Salle
Published twice a year, our Union magazine is an important way for our current and alumni families to stay in touch. We feature stories with current students, teachers, clubs, athletes, and more, and we share the latest news from our more than 10,000 living alumni. There are many ways in which De La Salle keeps that connection, that "union," strong, and this magazine is one great way in which we provide that in-depth look at the happenings on Winton Drive. We encourage you to flip through these pages and discover the latest news, programs, and updates from De La Salle High School.
