Congratulations to the varsity boys’ basketball team, which won the section championship Friday night and advanced to the Class 3A state tournament.

DeLaSalle earned the #1 seed and hosts Albany High School in the state quarterfinal on Wednesday, March 11 at 10:00am at Williams Arena. Because of the game, classes are canceled on March 11. Morning transportation routes will operate normally for those students who plan to ride to school to catch a fan bus. Afternoon transportation routes will leave DeLaSalle at 1:00pm. Fan buses to Wednesday’s game will leave from the front of DeLaSalle starting at 9:00am

You can pre-buy tickets to Wednesday’s game tomorrow before and after school in Albers Atrium and during lunches in the Florance Center. Looking for Islander spirit wear? The School Store will be open before and after school – and during lunches today and tomorrow.

Students, sign up here to ride a fan bus to the game. The bus leaves from the front of DeLaSalle at 4:45pm.

All Advanced Placement students are reminded to register and pay for AP exams before Monday, March 16. If you are in an AP class, you should have received a link to a Google form, which you need to fill out to register for all of your AP tests. Thank you to those who have already done this!

Each exam costs $33. if students qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch, then each test is free but students must still complete the registration form. If you pay by cash, please place in an envelope clearly marked with the student’s first and last name, the names of the tests, and the amount included in the envelope. Please pay the exact amount; change is not available. If you pay by check, please pay for all tests with one check, which can be made payable to DLS AP Program. Remember to include the student’s name in the check memo. Please pay Ms. Carter directly in person in B104.

A limited number of scholarships are available for students who have a financial barrier paying $33 per test but do not qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch. These students should see Ms. Carter ASAP.

Please contact Ms. Carter with any questions about registration or payment.
