Union 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.

Med. 91.2

Union Magazine

Published twice a year, our Union magazine is an important way for current and alumni families to stay informed about our school. Each issue provides an in-depth look at the many happenings on Winton Drive as well as stories about our current students, teachers, clubs, athletes and alumni. Put simply, it is one of the many ways in which we are able to keep a strong community connection. We encourage you to flip through the publications on this page to learn more about our school.

2023 Spring Issue: Shaping Lives

About the Cover

Class of 2023 Valedictorian, Charlie Kratus, was a regular fixture at school rallies and other events and often dressed up in his Spartan costume to show school pride. It therefore seemed only fitting to ask him to return to campus one last time for the cover of our Creating Spartans issue. The image of the Spartan, posed between the stacks of books in the Library was selected because, in its most basic form, De La Salle is ultimately about learning. It is here that students learn how to become a man of Faith, a man of Integrity, and a man of Scholarship.
