The AP English Literature test takes place this morning in the LL Gray gym.

HALLWAY CLOSING: The hallway between the Main Gym and the LL Gray Gym will be closed during AP testing to maintain a quiet testing area for students. Please plan accordingly and fill your water bottles before school or after 1:00pm. Please be respectful of our testers.

TOMORROW’S TEST: Tomorrow’s AP exam is AP Calculus AB/BC beginning at 8:30am in the LL Gray Gym. Students taking this test should report to the LL Gray Gym beginning at 8:15am with testing beginning promptly at 8:30am.

Please be aware that guidance office staff are helping proctor AP exams this week and next. Students, you should check with your teacher before going to the guidance office – and you should only go to the guidance office if you have an emotional need, an appointment, or need help with college advising.

It’s happening… seniors and staff take each other on in a kickball game tomorrow at 3:30pm on the Athletic Field. 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!

Applications are available now if you are interested in serving on Student Council next year. You may pick up a form in the Main Office. Applications are due by Friday, May 6 if you are running for Executive Board (President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Public Relations). Class representative applications are due by Friday, May 13.

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 ice cream at next Friday’s bonfire.

Do you like parties? Then why not come to Chess Club’s end of the year party, have a treat, play some chess, and watch your fellow Islanders receive awards! Chess Club will meet after school tomorrow until 5:00pm in A204 for one last time this school year. Please note that we are meeting until 5:00pm to celebrate the spectacular season. Players of all skill levels are welcome, and if you just have time to stop by and play one quick game that’s fine. See Ms. Kocourek or Anders Jenson with any questions.

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.

Congratulations to Christian Kardio ’16, winner of the drawing for the dorm mini fridge. Seniors entered into the drawing on Friday when they signed the “Class of 2016” banner indicating which school they would attend as part of National College Decision Day.
