To support our football team at the state championship, today is an Islander Spirit Day, meaning students and staff may dress out-of-uniform on Friday, if they wear black/gold clothing, Islander spirit wear, or Hawaiian-themed wear.

DeLaSalle Theatre presents the final two shows of M*A*S*H this weekend. Showtimes are tonight and tomorrow at 7:30pm in the Florance Center. The play tells the story of two new captains who shake up the 4077th M*A*S*H (Mobile Army Surgical Hospital) by using humor and hijinks to cope with the daily carnage of war. Admission for DeLaSalle students is free with a current DLS student ID.

DeLaSalle students and families may now volunteer at on-campus sporting and school events through the Islander Foundation program. The money raised during these volunteer efforts can help offset tuition and other expenses. Any registered DeLaSalle student between the ages of 13-19 may sign up to volunteer an on-campus Islander Foundation event. There is no required advanced training for these “student volunteers.” Click here to register for an event or learn more about the Islander Foundation.
