Preparing for high school and beyond.
Holy Family’s LaSalle Middle School provides a challenging and fun academic and extracurricular program for students in grades 5-8. We pride ourselves in helping our students develop into strong, respectful leaders academically, socially and spiritually so they can thrive in high school and beyond. Our program has a strong foundation based on:
*Faith and service: As kids grow, their responsibilities and capabilities do too. That’s why the focus on our Catholic faith broadens in middle school. LaSalle offers retreat opportunities each year to help students grow their relationship with Jesus Christ, get to know each other better and become closer as a class.
Likewise the service opportunities available to our students increase. LaSalle students participate in local, national and international service including yard raking for the elderly, food drives for community food banks, and monetary fundraising to support international relief programs. Our 8th graders always look forward to their annual spring time Rays of Hope service trip when they travel to assist the elderly and homeless in Omaha’s inner-city.
*A challenging curriculum: Leveled classes to meet the abilities of our students, an Expanded Learning Program (ELP) for advanced learners and STEM curriculum provide a strong academic foundation and high school preparation for your student. Technological support (desktop, smartboard and mobile computing technology) and dedicated teaching professionals create a learning environment conducive to helping your student succeed.
*Extracurricular variety: Middle school is the time when students should try new things. We encourage our students to be involved in any of the several extracurricular activities we offer including student council, athletics (football, volleyball, wrestling, basketball, cross country, swimming, track), drama, speech, band, and show choir. As a smaller school all LaSalle students, regardless of their skill level, have the opportunity to fully participate in their chosen activities.
*The LaSalle Brand: We like to refer to the “LaSalle Brand” as how a student represents and conducts themself outside the walls of LaSalle. Our teachers and staff reinforce with our students having respect for each other and authority, being well-mannered, and taking responsibility for your actions. We believe instilling these values develops the whole person and better prepares our students for their life after middle school.
