This week we will be celebrating and honoring the rich diversity that is present at DeLaSalle High School and in the world.  It is our hope that the events and programs that are planned for the week will provide a springboard into a yearlong and life long appreciation of the beauty that exists in every aspect of diversity.

Today we will gather for a celebration immediately following 1st period.  All students and staff should move directly to the Florance Center for the program with a reminder that books, ipads, book bags, and other items should be left in your first period classroom.  At our celebration event we will have several invited guests and performers.  These people are here to share their talents with us as well as observe our awesome student body in action.  Let’s show them our spirit of respect.

Please join the Parent Association on Tuesday as we enjoy ARTS and TREATS, a family celebration of Diversity Week. Treats will be at 6:30pm and the program to follow at 7:00pm in the Florance Center. All are welcome to this FREE event, bring family and friends. We encourage all to bring a sweet or savory treat to share that reflects your heritage, treats must be store-bought. Come see a festive celebration of culture through song, dance, art and spoken word. We are still in need of some set-up and serving volunteers. Please contact Karin Glanville or Jackie Schluter-Johnson if you would like to help! Please help support and celebrate our diversity at DE!
DeLaSalle will host its first Open House for prospective students and families tonight. Students, if you are not involved in an after school activity on Monday, please leave campus immediately after school so we can prepare our campus for visitors. Thank you!
