Tomorrow we host our 16th annual Starry Night prom for people with disabilities. More than 1,400 guests from all over the greater Twin Cities area will be enjoying an evening of music, fun, and dancing.  Over 200 DeLaSalle students have been involved in the planning, preparation and training that is required for such an event.  This is entirely volunteer, no Christian Service hours are awarded for participation – so these students deserve to be applauded.  Due to the importance of the training and preparation, only those students who have participated on the committee are allowed to attend.

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

The last Art Club meeting of the year is after school Wednesday. See you there!

Students who want to run for Student Council Executive Board must turn in their application to Mr. Zavitz by 3pm today. Applications for Student Council class representative are now available in the Main Office and are due 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.

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.

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.

Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors!! Are you still looking for something to do over the summer? The Center for Language Studies at Beloit College offers students the opportunity to make significant strides in the study of Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, or Russian and earn up to a year’s worth of college credit.

In its 33rd year, the Center for Language Studies takes an immersive approach to language learning that integrates cultural events on and off campus and daily language lunches with classroom activities. Students studying the same language live together, and they agree to adhere to our Dawn ‘til Dusk Target Language Policy. Their language programs are taught by excellent faculty members from all over the country, who live alongside the students on campus. Small class sizes ensure that students receive individualized instruction, and faculty members have office hours each evening to provide additional support.

This year, the program will take place June 11-August 5. It is open to anyone age 16 and older, and they are still accepting applications through May 20. Scholarships are available!! Click here for more information.
