Seniors – you sign up on the sheet on the Activities Office door to put your name in a lottery-type drawing for a spot on the team. If you win a spot on the team, you are required to make a $10 donation to the Ecuador Relief Fund.

Staff are also required to make a $10 donation to the Ecuador Relief Fund. For those attending the game, we are suggesting that you make a contribution to the Ecuador Relief Fund. Let’s make this a great community event and help Ecuadorians as well!

Dig out your loose change! Student Council is having a “penny war” between grade levels this week. The funds will go to disaster aid for the earthquake in Ecuador. There will be one jar for each grade level, in which you can put money during lunches. The goal is to put money into the jars of other grades. The grade with the least amount of money in their jar wins. The winning grade gets a surprise prize.

Next Monday is the last time this school year that DeLaSalle will volunteer at Sharing & Caring Hands. Students who want to help serve the afternoon meal after school on May 9 should e-mail Miss Barry. There’s only room for eight students.

This Friday marks the final Scrabble Club meeting of 2016. All are welcome to play after school in Mrs. Sullivan’s room, A206.
